As the sun dips below Jones Creek Cafe’s wood-slatted roof, the scent of frying catfish and hush puppies wafts across the patio, momentarily distracting guests from the evening’s live music. Inside, the glow of a half-dozen TVs illuminates wood-paneled walls laden with New Orleans Saints memorabilia. Though the lively atmosphere is akin to a sports bar, Jones Creek Cafe strives to surpass traditional bar fare: Chefs stuff potatoes with shrimp and crab and drizzle grilled fish with white-wine sauce. Additionally, at the oyster bar, servers dole out fresh Louisiana oysters and tiny statues of Venus on the half shell.
