Fixins, an American soul food concept, will soon be opening a new outpost at 306 24th Street in Oakland, according to The Mercury News.
Readers unfamiliar with former NBA All-Star and Mayor of Sacramento Kevin Johnson and his wife Michelle’s growing chain can expect to find a menu of appetizers — think deep-fried deviled eggs and catfish nuggets — mains including smothered chicken, shrimp & grits, chicken & waffles, sandwiches, and burgers, as well as a peach cobbler for dessert.
“Kevin grew up with soul food being the connective tissue of the broader Johnson family,” the official website states, narrating the origins of Fixins.
“BBQs and reunions always featured Grandma Glady’s famous peach cobbler and competitions around who made the best collard greens or potato salad. This restaurant is an homage to this amazing African American family and Johnson’s broader network of friends and associates by featuring all of their best recipes and family favorites.”
No opening date has been announced. Until the Oakland Fixins opens its doors, readers can find existing locations in Sacramento, LA, and Tulsa, OK.
