Highland is the standard for a lazy weekday dinner, and the kind of restaurant that everybody wished they had around the corner from their apartment. Yes, there’s a jukebox. Yes, all their cocktails are $12. And you better believe there are delicious Southern-focused classics like a spicy jambalaya with cornbread and an impressive blackened catfish po’boy. It’s also a prime spot for vegetarians—focus on the veggie jambalaya, black bean burger, and the buffalo fried brussels sprouts. It’s always lively and a little bit loud in here, and the walk-in-only policy and a late closing time cement them as our favorite spot in this part of Somerville.
