First time there and loved it. Great ambience and real New Orleans vibe. Inventive cocktails, nice wine list and by-the-glass. The charred crab appetizer was terrific--would have loved a bowl of that sauce for dipping! Entrees were the fish soup and braised pork shank-- both full of flavor and generous in portion. Our initial cocktail service was somewhat slow and we were delighted to learn that the drinks were comped, without us saying anything! Loved the entire experience and will be back. More

Good news first. It was a very pleasant surprise. The menu online is slightly different from the actual menu. The menu seems “limited” on its selection and you find yourself hunting for something remotely familiar. Further, there were several “special” appetizers not on the menu. We ordered two of the appetizer specials. Oyster stew and wood grilled oysters. The wood grilled were very good but not better than chargrilled oysters. The oyster stew was out of this world! The pulled pork and pasta entree was different but a wonderful surprise. The grilled red fish and mushrooms was one of the best dishes I’ve had in the entire area! The entire staff was friendly and efficient. The waiter looked a bit “ruffled” when he introduced himself enough to cause concern. However, he was great...but should take a bit more pride in his appearance. There was an issue with smoke from the brick oven filling the room which was minimized by them repeatedly opening the front and or rear door. This was annoying and distracting which took away from the attempt at ambiance. I don’t generally like restaurants in strip shopping centers. Pardos is the best I’ve ever been too. It deserves a better location and ventilation system. However, I think it’s worth a ride from across the lake..seriously! This chef is prideful and talented! More

The Story of Jayne Jayne is the hyper-cool, laid back groove of New Orleans. A throwback to MOD vibes and good times. An easy going place to enjoy an espresso with friends, or relax over great Southern style cuisine with a cocktail that you will not soon forget. So dry off those jeans that have been soaking in the bathtub and tell your friends – “meet me at the Jayne”. Wondering about the jeans? Fashion obsessed MODs would sit in a bathtub of warm water wearing their jeans, then allow them to air dry in order to create the perfect slim fit.More

Discover New Orleans

French, Spanish and Creole influences evolved New Orleans cuisine into a genre all its own. Combine Gulf coast seafood, a butter-based sauce and Cajun spices, and you’re looking at a classic Nola dish. Take the famed crawfish boil, for instance, which locals advise is best eaten as a family. In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, the restaurant industry banded together to support their city in the wake of serious devastation. New restaurants began opening their doors, and today you’ll find a wealth of cuisines that span the classics to modern reinventions to everything in between.
