Best thing I ate in New Orleans this week: Shrimp remoulade salad at High Hat

Eating out is always a good idea IMO. I recently escaped the heat at a lovely lunch at High Hat Cafe on Freret Street.

  • The restaurant, which recently celebrated its 12th anniversary, focuses on Southern specialties and comfort foods.
  • The menu changes seasonally.

What I ate: Shrimp remoulade wedge salad and deviled eggs.

  • The $14 dish was cold and just right for a hot summer day.
  • The remoulade dressing was a tangy oil-and-vinegar twist on the traditional mayo-based sauce.

Of note: My lunch buddy got the made-to-order fried chicken and said it was "moist, perfectly crunchy and so good."
