Hat City Kitchen

At the corner of Valley and Forest streets, (459 Valley) in the shadow of Our Lady of the Valley Church, HAT CITY KITCHEN is a new restaurant in an old building with a new vibe.



"Our emphasis is on quality and integrity. We offer American Comfort foods with an influence from the south and New Orleans or, as we say Creosoul. By focusing on a simple menu, we have the ability to perfect an artisanal process, creating the best food imaginable. We have created an experience that has broad appeal to families,traditional food lovers and critical Epicureans at an affordable price."



All profits from Hat City Kitchen go to support revitalization of the Valley neighborhood; true to Orange's history as a small city where culture and commerce meet in the street. Hat City Kitchen is a happy collaboration of art, urban planning, food and music, playing for the neighbors late into the night.

"We went to see the Blues Tribute to Albert & Freddie King on 4/7/16. Great show! Great Food! Volume level of the band was perfect. We sat at the back of the Bar and could see the stage clearly. Food was excellent!"

"There appeared to only be one waitperson the night we were there. She was wonderful in every way except she had too many people to serve, and no help. When you could get her attention, you got everything you asked for, but the food was slow in coming; unusual from our other times there, but disappointing just the same"

"Great find! Hat city restaurant is cozy but has a vibrant vibe about it. The food is your usual comfort food with a twist. The menu has a good mix of your traditional southern cooking like the Cajun catfish fritters to the smoky BBQ ribs. Carribean cooking is also quite evident. The place is easy and laid back. Pricing is reasonable and in big portions! The servers are great looking and very attentive! I will surely be back again. Keep up the good work!"

"Going to a concert at the NJPAC, looked for a place to eat, and was happy to find this place! The locals come in, exchange pleasantries and sit at the bar. But, everyone orders food! No one is there to just drink. The gumbo (soup) was excellent. My wife's fried chicken and ribs platter was out of this world, and I don't usually eat fried chicken or order ribs! I enjoyed a perfect fried chicken breast."

"I brought my husband here for date night. While I did enjoy the live music it was very loud and made it a challenge to talk at dinner. As for the dinner itself, I did enjoy the cajun theme but some dishes were more successful than others. I would order the gumbo again for sure. But the BBQ Shrimp and grits were a no for me."

"My wife and I and two other couples went to Hat City Kitchen for the first time for dinner and to listen to the band. We had a a lot of fun. Had a NYC downtown small club vibe to it. An eclectic miss of people, young, middle-age and older, some dressed nice and others very casual. The place is a a bit small and seating is tight. Also a bit grungy, but it fits. You definitely want to sit in the main dining area by the stage if you want to fully enjoy the music, but be forewarned it is loud and makes it difficult to hold a conversation. You can sit in an adjacent room and you can still hear the music, but can't see the band. Only drawback was the food. The entrees were mediocre at best. The fried chicken was almost tasteless and very heavily battered I also tried the jambalaya and thought it was bland. The appetizers were better. The po-boy sliders were the best. I would go back to enjoy the music and just stick to appetizers and drinks. Perhaps the po-boy sandwich would be a better choice next time."

"The food was terrific! The appetizer, on special, which was the shrimp with grit cake, was really good. The Cajun burger, the crab burger, and the sides of collared greens and Mac and cheese were terrific, and a lot of food for the money! The one downside was the cheesy grits, which were very runny. The drinks were great, as was the service. Lastly, the blues band playing tonight were well worth the $10 pp cover. We will definitely return!!!"

"We found the food tasty, but, the temperature of if was so hot it was hard to enjoy it.
Good luck finding parking. No parking lot, street parking only in an area where the residents used the street for their parking. Had to walk a couple of blocks from our car to the restaurant."

"We sat at the bar and listened to a blues band that was good. Really good food -- ribs are awesome and salmon was really good too."

"Mainly went for the jam session which was good. The food was just ok. I paid $9.00 for fried zucchini. It was equivalent to about 1/4 of a zucchini if that cut up. I ordered a cajun burger which was burnt. I feel that if an establishment can't make a burger. I'm pretty hesitant to go again to try anything else. Our waitress was very pleasant. I didn't express any dissatisfaction of food with her because it was just a burger. Like I said I mainly went for the jam session which was entertaining. So next time I will eat before I go and just order drinks. Although, not the sangria. That was also not that great."

"When we got there at 8:15 on a Friday night, the place was relatively empty, so we were seated quickly and didn't need a reservation. The waitress was lovely, but as the evening wore on she became more difficult to locate. The food was good and it came out to the table at a good pace. The only real issue was with the music. I enjoyed the live music, but it was much too loud and interfered with our conversations. We sat in the far dining area specifically so we could enjoy the music and chat, but it was impossible to hear anything."

"We have previously dined at hat city kitchen on several occasions. The food continues to be consistent however service was seriously lacking this time around. We had to remind our waiter to bring our second round of drinks after waiting a good 15 minutes. We were a party of five and three dishes came out and the next two came out a good 10 minutes later. We ordered desserts and when they were brought out our dinner dishes were still on the table we had to ask the waiter to take them away...really ?? There were only three other tables seated for dinner so I am not sure why the service was so bad. Hopefully we will not have this experience again or we will have to scratch this off our local list."
