Diners discover hidden treasures inside stuffed catfish fillets ($14.99), crack hot boiled crawfish ($12.99) to get to the prize inside, and devour hoagie-clad po boy sandwiches ($8.99), which deliver loads of chicken, oysters, and andouille sausage.

Jazz, a Louisiana Kitchen
“Laissez les bon temps rouler” is a favorite saying at Jazz, a Louisiana Kitchen; translated from French, it means, “let the good times roll.” With a blend of Cajun cuisine, cold drinks, and live music, the restaurant recreates the rollicking atmosphere of New Orleans' French Quarter. In the kitchen, chefs orchestrate multiple Gulf Coast flavors in classic louisiana catfish po' boys and blackened-shrimp platters, or let simple, properly prepared oysters and broiled crayfish stand on their own. Servers, meanwhile, draw frothy mugs of beer or mix specialty cocktails and frozen daiquiris. The lively atmosphere attracts local jazz musicians for open mics and accomplished players for special sets or scat-sung renditions of the menu.
