If you are ever itching for some of that rich, spicy, melt in your mouth comfort food from the South, then I would recommend that you get in your car immediately and take a trip down to Zydeco’s located in downtown Denver. At Zydeco’s, you will be greeted and waited on according to the charms characteristic of Southern hospitality.
The menu is laid out to introduce you to the culinary traditions of New Orleans and the South. Chef Melton’s Southern roots and upbringing are reflected in the award winning gumbo, fried chicken and waffles topped with honey butter and cayenne syrup, and the classic biscuits and gravy. The list does not end there, including more of the southern classics such as Po’Boy sandwiches, smoked shrimp and grits, and “Calabash” style frog legs that are soaked in buttermilk before being breaded in a special calabash breading.
For those with less of an appetite than is required for eating southern specialties, you can indulge in the Jezebel peach salad that includes fresh Colorado peaches mixed in with basil and freshly made mozzarella. This time of year, you can even treat yourself to a freshly picked heirloom tomato salad with fresh dill, mint, and feta cheese….yum!
If you choose to go on a Friday or Saturday night you may enjoy live music from 7 to11 p.m. To top it all off, Zydeco’s offers Moonshine straight from Tennesee and Abita Beer from New Orleans that will set the mood right. So, when you are in the mood for some of that southern home cookin’ round up the crowd and enjoy a meal at Zydeco’s!
Zydeco’s is located at 1730 Wynkoop Street, Denver, CO, and can be reached at (303) 293-2887.
