A stalwart neighborhood joint, the age-old College Inn occupies a new building after decades in an older, now razed structure next door. The flat, greasy burgers are still popular, particularly when ordered with french fries and a cold Abita beer, but the diner fare has been joined by options like lemon-thyme chicken and grilled Gulf fish over crawfish étouffée. Many of the vegetables come from the restaurant's two neighboring urban gardens. Despite all the updates,
you can still get the veal cutlet that's been on the menu since 1933.
