Revolving Tables, Still Revolving, And Peggy's Is Back

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

I read somewhere recently, and can't remember what article it was, that The Dinner Bell is the last revolving table restaurant in Mississippi. But that's not accurate, as Walnut Hills in Vicksburg is still spinning (in fact, the other day they listed on FB they were serving "Fried Chicken, Roast Beef, Shrimp Etoufee, Rice & Gravy, Butter Peas, Green Beans, Purple Hull Peas, Candied Sweet Potatoes, Mustard Greens, Smothered Squash, Coleslaw, Marinated Beets, Apple Cobbler, Mississippi Mud Cake"). On this visit, we were in McComb, and happily sat down to this table at the Dinner Bell, which was completely filled with other diners (I took this pic once everyone else had left)

Besides the food, I love meeting the other diners, as most often we're all strangers to one another, and enjoy the dance of the table as people are so incredibly polite about taking dishes down from the lazy susan and putting them back, when to spin, and looking out for errant spoons looking to tip frosty glasses of sweet tea.

Here: (I guess the fried eggplant hadn't yet made it around) peas, beans, sweet potatoes, greens, a dumplin, cornbread, and a fried chicken thigh

All delicious.

Shugie = huge fan.

Best Mississippi restaurant news I've heard this month: Peggy's in Philadelphia (Neshoba County) is open again. That's another 'home' restaurant in which the honor system is in place: one pays cash in a basket upon leaving.

Can't wait to eat from these sweet plates again later this summer
