Dégagé Jazz Café - Maumee: $20 for $40 Worth of French-Inspired Fare and Nonalcoholic Drinks at Dégagé Jazz Café

Most modern cuisine is a continuation of classic dishes, just as a computer is a slightly modified typewriter and a washing machine is a river in a box. Revel in palatable progress with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of French-inspired cuisine and nonalcoholic drinks at Dégagé Jazz Café in Maumee.

Dégagé Jazz Café dishes up an extensive selection of fresh and seasonal menu items set to a soundtrack of toe-tapping tunes. Chef Joseph Jacobsen, who boasts more than 3,000 hours of classic culinary training, makes use of seasonal, locally grown ingredients when possible. For smooth opening acts, guests can start with sweet-potato tots ($6.50) or share mussels steamed in wine and fresh herbs ($9.95). The Cracker Jack salad ($8.50 for a large) serenades fellow diners with the sweet crunch of peppery arugula and caramelized corn, and the local pork ribs ($20 for full rack), which are braised for six hours and dressed in root-beer barbecue sauce, reinforce the timeless love affair between sweet and salty. Fettuccine with butter and cream ($12+), a house specialty, outfits noodles in a decadent sauce studded with sun-dried tomatoes, caper berries, and fried basil. After dinner, sated eaters can bask beneath artful wall lamps, which emanate a soft blue glow to instill diners with empathy for denim.

Housed in a building listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Dégagé Jazz Café invites diners to sate soulful yearnings with the sounds of live jazz five nights a week. Though customers must pay a $5 cover charge to sit in the jazz café on Friday and Saturday, there’s no charge to settle on the outdoor patio or in other areas of the restaurant, where music and live video of the performers are piped in. No matter where you sit, the friendly, attentive serving staff will try to meet any request, except for those beginning with "I dare you to …"

Dégagé Jazz Café

Over the course of its 176-year history, The Commercial Building has purportedly been a stop on the Underground Railroad, a route for bootleggers during Prohibition, and a watering hole for Abraham Lincoln, who prosecuted cases at the nearby courthouse. Situated on the first floor of the building, which is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Dégagé Jazz Café draws contemporary crowds with its combination of live music and French-inspired cuisine.

Chef Jacob Jacobsen, a Toledo native and French Culinary Institute grad, crafts seasonal menus inspired by French and New American cooking. Dishes range from salads with locally grown apples and pears to slow-braised baby-back ribs and wet-aged rib-eye steaks. Other entrees incorporate sustainable seafood, including wild, line-caught Atlantic king salmon and local walleye from Port Clinton Fisheries. Servers carry dishes to weathered wooden booths inside the club-like dining room or float them onto its outdoor patio via attached mini-parachutes.
