pop-we Dinner Club Reviews Jazz

Jazz 14th and Farnam St.

Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler or let the good time roll with all that Jazz - A Louisiana Kitchen! Jazz is located at 1421 Farnam St. in Omaha, NE. This was a place I had heard about and always wanted to try, as I am a fan of Cajun food or food with a kick. Jazz prides themselves on being an authentic French Quarter café for over 25 years. There are six locations in Texas, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and Nevada.

Jazz is a colorful corner building with multi colored awnings with seating outside. When you walk in there is a hostess stand and couple benches along the windows as the waiting area is more like hallway that extends to the back. The bar is toward the back, just follow the wall around. The walls are covered with various adult beverage signs (Southern Comfort, Fat Tire along with others) as well pictures of Louisiana, a giant cape from Mardi Gras along with other pieces to make up the eclectic décor. Above the dining area there is a balcony that appears to have tables and in the corner is an area for a band, there was a band the night we were there. Unfortunately, most in our part found the band too loud -- as it was hard to converse with our party of 12.

Blackened Chicken Hot Fanny
Usually when I go to a Cajun restaurant I get Etouffee or Jambalaya but tonight I thought I would try something different. Tonight I ordered the Blackened Chicken with Hot Fanny. Hot Fanny is mushrooms and jalapenos in a garlic butter sauce. The meal was also served with a veggie medley and potatoes. The dish was full of flavor and I enjoyed it very much but I was disappointed that it was not very spicy. I had to use some hot sauce to add a lil kick. The house hot sauce is comparable to a Louisiana Hot Sauce or Red Devil. A couple people, including me, ordered a cup of Gumbo. Their Gumbo is a thick hearty soup served with rice in the bottom of the cup; instead of, being mixed in, as it should be.

After compiling the surveys from the other foodies the pop-we Dinner Club gives Jazz: 3.925 star average on a scale of 1-5.
