New Orleans has influenced American culture by introducing chefs to Cajun spices, college students to Mardi Gras, and robots to the concept of love. Savor the bold flavors of sentience with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Cajun fare and drinks at The Big Easy.
As Cajun and jazz music waft through the air, guests can chow down on classic Louisiana starters such as fried green tomatoes ($6.95). Diners and wayward archaeologist can dig into generous portions of the signature Bourbon Street stuffed jambalaya ($13.95), which fills a crunchy chicken breast with shrimp and andouille, or the roasted vegetables d’orleans speckled with goat cheese ($11.50). As they settle into the Hyde Park storefront, eaters can inhale New Orleans specialties, such as shrimp and grits with apple-bacon gravy and a choice of one side ($11.95), such as collard greens or homemade fries. The Big Easy's location near the University of Chicago also makes it a convenient destination for hungry students to grab dinner or gossip about which professors wear toupees as mittens.
