Savor the Southern Breeze on the Patio
Rain, followed by more fall like, cool temperatures serves to remind all those who enjoy a nice and relaxed meal on the patio that time is dwindling for enjoying this warm weather pastime. With little time left, restaurants such as Jezebel’s Southern Bistro & Bar seem to beckon patio lovers in to enjoy a “Sunday on the patio” filled with the pleasures of that ole’ down south cuisine.
Sundays on the patio begin at 10 am with brunch, followed by lunch, happy hour, dinner, and ending at 9pm. Thus from 10am to 9pm, you have the opportunity to feast upon the best of the southern soul food traditions in an inviting outdoor setting. For those southern food lovers, Sunday brunch has everything the southern soul desires. Beginning with a Three Egg Southern Omelet, you can relish in southern specialties such as collard greens, country ham, and red eye gravy all served with a house-made southern-style biscuit. Of course, southern omelets may seem mild and less alluring compared to a well-spiced dish of Jumbo Shrimp ‘n Grits served with andouille sausage, poblano peppers, and vidalia onions. For a more savory forkful, one cannot pass up an opportunity to taste Jezebel’s fried chicken and waffles made with Jezebel’s very own gluten-free fried chicken wings tucked beside hand-pressed Belgian style waffles, served with a side of sweet and savory honey butter. Of course, the lover of the classic south might savor some house-made biscuits and gravy, a traditional pleasure of down south cookin’.
Lunch and dinner at Jezebel’s keeps the flavors of the south alive with savory southern delights such as the Louisiana Po’ Boys’ sandwich made with cornmeal crusted oysters or fried shrimp plated on top a warm, slightly toasted hoagie roll with a spicy remoulade spread on top. A small bite of spice may also be ordered on the side in the form of a peppadew peppper stuffed with pimiento goat cheese drizzled atop with a slightly sweet balsamic reduction. A basket of warm cornbread fresh out of the oven serves to add an element of southern comfort to any meal.
As a comforting backdrop, Jezebel’s includes a bit of live music on the patio from 4pm to 8pm Sundays. On a cooler Colorado night, the sound of toe tapping along with your fellow diners humming along and perhaps even singing out loud keeps the atmosphere warm at Jezebel’s. Amidst the soul-warming sounds of southern music, you can feast upon the flavors of southern comfort food, taking in that breeze of down south pleasure served right on the patio.
Jezebel’s is located at 3301 Tejon St. Denver 80211; Tel: 303-433-3060. Sunday Brunch is 10 am – 3 pm.
