Chefs at the House of Blues reel in Creole influences from the Mississippi Delta to spice their menu of Southern-style comfort fare. Appetizers such as pan-seared voodoo shrimp served with the house's cornbread rouse taste buds for romps through edible gardens or scuba dives into soup. At dinner, nimble hands crust the cowboy steak in ancho chile and coffee, piling its plate with mashed potatoes and jalapeño butter to sate 10-gallon appetites. Grilled chicken marinated in citrus and rosemary also entices evening patrons with impressive tan lines, and the half-pound blue-cheese burger—part of the lunch menu but available until close—leaves one hand free to spoon shrimp, andouille sausage, and spicy tasso ham from a tablemate's bowl of Creole seafood jambalaya into a hollow-bodied guitar. Duos and foursomes can conclude conversations over slices of florida key-lime pie or the cast-iron baked cookie's bayou of ice cream, hot fudge, and caramel sauce.
Clad in distressed wood paneling and blanketed in vibrant murals by the House of Blues' resident artist, the restaurant populates a central illuminated A-frame with tables, and booths line the walls. The Voodoo Stage anchors one end, where local talent plays on a weekly schedule of live music and events. Courteous staff members provide complimentary valet service for cars and groupies during lunch hours, and keep the kitchen open until 1 a.m. on weekends for nighthawks.
House of Blues Dallas
To keep the spirit of its musical roots ever near, House of Blues Dallas keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi beneath its stage. Summoning the spirit and raw grit contained therein, local and national performers enliven the venue’s wood-laden auditorium, lined with art such as Alan Sainte James Boudrot’s A Dream Come True. The historic White Swan building, a remnant of the 1920s coffee-processing plant, hosts this mix of traditional and contemporary, adding its open architecture to every show.
