With all the bad news and sad news about New Orleans and the Gulf Coast lately, I thought I bring you a little glad news this week. I was glad to recently discover a little piece of Louisiana right here in Salt Lake, on South State Street. No, it wasn’t something blown in by Hurricane Katrina, but a nice little restaurant called JazZee Cajun Café, serving New Orleans style Cajun cuisine.
Chef William Davis is the owner of JazZee Cajun Café and he hails from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. So he knows a thing or two about Cajun-Creole dishes like gumbo, red beans and rice, seafood etouffee, and jambalaya. And Chef William’s big smile is just a small indication of the southern hospitality served up at JazZee Cajun Café.
Now, for the inexperienced, I might suggest getting your feet wet with a shrimp or oyster po boy sandwich at JazZee. They are both terrific, but then so is the catfish po boy. For more adventurous eaters, I recommend the crawfish and shrimp boil, frog legs a la carte, or an order of Chef William’s alligator nuggets with a side of Cajun fries and black eyed peas. You’ll find that alligator tastes a lot like chicken – really!
But don’t get too filled up on gator because you’d be crazy to pass up the lip-smackin’ sweet potato pie at JazZee. That’s JazZee New Orleans-style Cajun Café on South State – some good news about New Orleans.
