Cajun fare is generally served hot on a bed of rice, unlike Antarctic cuisine, which always arrives cold in a recliner made of penguin feathers. Treat your palate to a warmer climate with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a Cajun dinner for two at Rhythm Kitchen Seafood & Steaks (up to a $60 total value), which includes the following:
- Two Cajun Classics entrees (up to a $17.95 value each)
- Two glasses of wine (up to a $12 value each)
Though more expensive glasses are available, this Groupon is valid only for wines of up to $12 per glass.
A two-story dining room connected by an ornate carpeted staircase adds visual elegance to the delicious aromas wafting from Rhythm Kitchen's eponymous room, where chefs dish out a roster of Cajun Classics from a French Creole–seasoned menu. Blackened chicken pasta in creamy Cajun alfredeaux sauce bewitches an Italian classic with bayou flavors, and the Atchafalaya Crawfish Delight’s blackened catfish plants its zesty flag atop a mountain of Cajun rice slathered in crawfish étouffée. The jambalaya’s trifecta of chicken, andouille sausage, and shrimp joins forces to combat taste-bud ennui better than a MP3-playing fork with the aid of its sautéed onion and pepper sidekicks. Cool piping tongues with a glass of Sutter Home moscato, Joel Gott sauvignon blanc, or another selection from the roster of grapey liquid foodmates.
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.
