What You'll Get
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 $20, you $40 worth of French Creole cuisine at Rhythm Kitchen Seafood & Steaks.
Rhythm Kitchen blends the soulful spices of Cajun, Creole, and American dishes to create an extensive menu of seafood, gumbo, jambalaya, pasta, steaks, and more. Southern fried or blackened alligator tail chases down stomachs ($9.29), and a curated collection of catfish fillets, oysters, fried shrimp, cold boiled shrimp, and frog legs are on edible display in the Rhythm Kitchen platter ($20.79). Grilled game comes in the form of a 14-ounce USDA choice New York strip with two accompanying side dishes, such as rice pilaf and chow chow relish ($21.99), and jambalaya combines chicken, andouille sausage, onions, and peppers to bridge the barrier between protein and produce originally erected when their parents made the two start sharing a bedroom ($14.29).
Like book-club meetings, Rhythm Kitchen's vibrant meals go over even better with boozy beverages. Though this Groupon is not valid for Monday-night wine specials or happy hours, the wine list provides ample accompanying beverage options, as well as light, entertaining reading during a parent's dinner-table diatribe. Rhythm Kitchen's Southern stylings extend beyond the menu to a space decorated with intricate wrought-iron designs and ornate carpeting reminiscent of New Orleans.

About Rhythm Kitchen Seafood & Steaks
Head chef and owner Scott Ghormley revealed the inspiration behind Rhythm Kitchen Seafood & Steaks to Nevada Magazine, saying, "I love the food and culture in the southern part of the country. And that's what I wanted to bring to Las Vegas." His menu backs that statement up with a slate of creole and Cajun classics such as jambalaya and a medley of catfish and shrimp in the N'Awlins Seafood Delight. Scott and his staff embellish their signature steaks and crayfish with sauces and fresh spices, and maintain a robust wine list to accompany dishes.
The decor reflects the fare's New Orleans origins, with a golden fleur-de-lis and a ferocious alligator figurine accenting a dining room of white tablecloths and maroon napkins. The banquet room, which comfortably welcomes up to 250 partygoers, boasts black leather booths and a bar with two TVs showing sports or nature documentaries about the world's most ornery reptiles.
