Cafeteria is where you’ll find Chelsea’s painfully hip when they’re jonesin’ for momma’s home cookin’. Like an all-American bumpkin with a big city makeover, the food is a gussied-up version of classic comfort foods like meatloaf, mac and cheese, and fried green tomatoes. The bar may be teeny tiny, but it boasts an almost daunting array of fruity concoctions—and those are just the patrons! Never fear, though; the bartenders and wait staff are more than happy to help you navigate the menu, pointing out favorites like the frothy white peach margarita. The place is open 24 hours, so you can kick back in a candlelit banquette with a drink or a hangover-helping snack into the wee hours of the morning.
