Have you ever been to New Orleans Louisiana? The sound of music is everywhere, the smell of food cooking makes you want to eat! eat! eat!.
San Jose has two New Orleans style bistro’s. There’s the Poor House Bistro at 91 S. Autumn Street in near downtown San Jose. You can go to this joint and get your grub on with some Jambalaya, Crawfish Pasta, and Sausage Bread just to name a few of my favorites. While your grubbing down, you can listen to some good soul music by Lara Price & Yesterday Band on Thursdays from 6pm to 9pm. The Poor House Bistro is one of the joints you want to be at you have your choice of days Tuesday through Sunday. The other bistro is Bourbon Street Bistro located at 5635 Silver Creek Valley Road in San Jose, opened last July 2009. I went to Bourbon Street Bistro this month and I can say I was pleasantly surprised, the menu had a variety of taste of New Orleans. A few of my favorites dishes were Gumbo, Etouffee and Shrimp PoBoy Sandwich, The music was a collection of Jazz and Blues, the band was Noel & Friends you can catch them on Wednesdays between 7pm and 10pm.. I think Bourbon Street Bistro is going to be the place to go for good food and good music.
