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.

Menu is here.
