Take it from a fellow born and raised Cajun near the Atchafalaya river basin, this place is a huge letdown. There is one single item you measure ""Louisiana Style"" resturants by, and that's the Gumbo. Gumbo is supposed to have a neutral to mid-dark roux. apparantly the chef at Jazz likes burnt roux, which in essence, ruins the entire dish. Not to mention, it appeared as if the rice in my dish was added long before it was to be served to me. Thus, I was served more of a Gumbalaya dish rather than an authentic Gumbo. This idish is highly insulting for anyone who knows true gumbo, whether creole or filet.\r
I was also forced to return for a company arrangement and ordered the Po Boy. Everyone knows your typical Po Boy should be smalled with so much shrimp, you can make antoher sandwich with the leftovers. Not so with Jazz's Po Boy. It's more of a ""shrimp sandwich"" than anything else. Highly frustrating affair.\r
Hoenstly, the only louisiana kitchen that was worth the visit in the KC area was La Croix Creole Bistro out in westport however (Rumor has it) the owner was shipped out to Iraq for the war and they had to close up shop.\r
For decent Louisiana food, you might be better served at Boudreaux out near Overland Park. Otherwise, stay away from the disgrace and insult that is Jazz.
Pros: I wish I could give you any.
Cons: Horrible representation of true Louisiana cooking.
