New Orleans may be in the South, but it’s really a culinary Nation unto its own. So for a taste of good, old-fashioned Southern diner favorites—without only a slight Cajun-Creole accent—head to High Hat Café, where Chef Jeremy Wolgamott cooks honest, soul-warming fare. Burgers, pimento cheese, fried catfish, cornbread, and wedge salads all make menu appearances. With décor to match the retro menus—think Formica tables, penny tile floors, and bar stool seating—High Hat recalls a simpler time and place, where you knew just where to go to lunch and what blue-plate special to order.
