Cajun cuisine's distinct spices stem from its attitude-laden ingredients, such as brazen pork cheek, incredulous crawfish, and sassy-fras. Give your taste buds some lip with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Louisiana-inspired cuisine at Chef Mac's and All That Blues. This Groupon is valid for lunch Tuesday through Saturday, and for dinner Tuesday through Thursday. Chef Mac’s hosts a buffet and music on Friday and Saturday evenings (not included in this deal).
Chef Maclonza Lee crafts authentic southern dishes from fresh, local ingredients, inspired by a cavalcade of Cajun family recipes. Peruse a menu of southerly-seasoned meals, opening with Cajun-grilled tofu or seitan mixed in with vegetables and pita chips ($12). Chef Mac builds a Cajun chicken sandwich by hiring a contractor and deftly convincing thin, grilled chicken slices to wander into a cloud of barbecue sauce, and trapping them between halves of a grilled wheat bun ($10). Diners may also dig through a grilled bounty of classic jambalaya's chicken, andouille sausage, and shrimp ($18).
Diners may request to refurbish any meat-bearing plates with tofu or seitan. Chef Mac fashions his fare on an open grill using produce from farmers of the Hamilton Lauraville Tuesday Market, where he also makes an appearance. Restaurant interiors sate ocular appetites with the minimalist, whimsical paintings of Syndei Smith Jordan, and incubate young dishes in perpetual blues and jazz tunes. Guests gather at the dining room's vibrant stage for live blues-music mavens on Fridays and Saturdays, or live karaoke on Wednesdays.
