New French chef at Chris' Jazz Cafe

Chris' Jazz Cafe

Aside from its staple of live jazz music, Chris' Jazz Cafe (1421 Sansom St.) has always been known for New Orleans-style dishes such as jambalaya and a shrimp/crabcake.

Owner Mark DeNinno has enlisted the culinary services of a Frenchman, Laurent Leseur, whose recent past includes Zinc and La Boheme.

Now the menu includes bistro favorites, including frogs legs, escargot, house-cured gravlax and duck parmentier.
