Citysearch Reviews Chris' Jazz Cafe
February 22, 2006
Posted by missjonz on 08/04/2005
Where does one start when describing this jazz lovers hideway? Maybe with the jazz? With the food? Or with the atmostsphere?
Alex, I'll take all of the above for a $ 100!
The tea candles provide the mood and with Mark and Chris behind the bar no one leaves thirsty or hungry (ladies bring your straws because Chris the bartender has the drink for you). I recommend a bottle of Vouvray and the Salmon Peppernade (heaven!). I skipped dessert but the sounds of The 6th Street Quaternion were just as sweet. Before you leave make sure you grab a calender, you'll need it to make plans for your next visit.
Chris' is the perfect marriage between a swanky jazz club and a laid back musicians loft. I am extremely impressed with Chris'. After all first impressions are the most important!
