At least it seems so. Details, that snarky, urban-centric men's style and fashion magazine, even includes a recipe for redeye gravy on page 118 of its March issue. I almost did a double-take when I saw it.
The recipe printed in the magazine is the one used by the chef at New York City's hip Momofuku Ssäm Bar.
This website provides a history of country ham and redeye gravy, although I wonder if the story of how redeye gravy was named is myth or fact. Either way, it's an amusing story.
