Cooking food over an open flame can impart smoky flavor and seal in savory juices, but cooking food over an eternal flame can get a bobsledding team kicked out of the Olympics. Get your fill of flame-cooked fare with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Louisiana creole cooking at Zydeco on High on South High Street. This Groupon is valid for dinner only.
At Zydeco on High, Mozell Devereaux and her spice-slinging staff prepare Louisiana creole recipes inspired by the owner's New Orleans roots. Blending French, Portuguese, Spanish, and Caribbean influences, the dinner menu unleashes the flavors of the bayou without subjecting taste buds to crawfish pincers. The Big Easy jambalaya ($10.95) lines empty bellies with a zesty mélange of rice, veggies, and sausage, and the Bayou burger ($8.95) couples ground beef and spicy andouille sausage in Cajun matrimony. Bourbon and cream richly flavor the plump Bourbon chicken ($10.95), served with a choice of sides including fried okra and mashed sweet potatoes. Strapping appetites can be tamed with a heaping slab of Mozell's barbecued pork ($18.95) and a steel barrel of sweat tea.
The restaurant's royal-purple interior matches comfort and glamour, with leather, old photographs, and lush, semi-tropical plants. Live bands play at Zydeco on Friday and Saturday nights, and patrons may need to pay a cover, unless they bring their own washboards, accordions, and dancing alligators.
