"If you’re looking for the authentic taste of the Big Easy without making the trip down South, this is the place to go. Its extensive menu caters to those with a stomach for hearty Louisiana cooking and those able to handle a platter of sausage, bacon, chicken, rice, tomatoes and corn bread, all for $20. The menu also has a lengthy list of “not so Cajun” entrees."

"The oysters are fried perfectly. They are soft and delicate on the inside, and although they are brought to you looking crispy and crunchy, when you bite through, you'll notice they are moist and superior to any other fried seafood to touch your lips."

"Heaven arrived in the form of stuffed eggplant. Thick slices of crisp breaded and fried eggplant are not so much stuffed as layered with seafood and cornbread dressing and topped with a truly decadent shrimp buttercream sauce. Calories be damned!"

When I got off the phone with [Chef Steve] I put in a call to Philbin. I was looking forward to talking with him. But Philbin was busy. So, for that matter, was Kathie Lee.

The complimentary breadbasket alone is worth the price of a meal at some other places, with corn muffins so light and flaky that they're absolutely to die for.

Damn Yankee. That's what they called [Chef Steve] when he worked in Paul Prudhomme's temple of New Orleans cuisine…

The only other place I know of where Cajun food like this is served is Paul Prudhomme's restaurant in New Orleans, where Cooking With Jazz's chef-owner, [Chef Steve], worked for four years.
