Cooking With Jazz (Limerick Review)

For many years, Cooking With Jazz in Whitestone, Queens, New York was one of our favorite restaurants. Then, suddenly, it was gone.

Several years went by, and hubby Mark and I had just about given up on ever getting good New Orleans food again, short of flying to Louisiana. And then, the unimaginable happened — a postcard arrived announcing that Cooking With Jazz had reopened, this time in Jamaica Estates, Queens.

Oh joy!

Within days we were dining at the new Cooking With Jazz, and it’s even better than we remembered.

And so, a limerick in honor of chef-owner Steve and the wonderful Cooking With Jazz restaurant:

Cooking With Jazz (Limerick Review)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

There’s a Cajun oasis in Queens
With authentic cuisine, New Orleans,
And the Creole pizzazz
At Cooking With Jazz
Surely rivals all Big Easy scenes.

  1. I’m a jazz fan myself AND player. I like it!

    I always seek good spots to eat
    And in Queens I would sure beat my feet
    All over the borough
    While my brow would furrow
    But Cooking With Jazz sure sounds neat!

    Thanks One of the Guys and Jesse!

  4. This is a **wonderful place** which has just re-reopened. The food at Cooking with Jazz is in every respect **GREAT TASTING**. The only problem is that it tastes so good that I eat too much & need to eat nothing for the next 72 hours to make up for it. I very highly recommend CWJ for fat people who love to eat. Skinny folks will be challenged to avoid over eating. I usually try to avoid times that they have the live music playing. I find that the music distracts from the eating, something I just love to do. The only sour note (no pun intended) is that they are CLOSED for LUNCH :-(

    Stan, I’m so glad they reopened. And I agree — my husband and I prefer eating at Cooking with Jazz without the live music. And we always leave with doggy bags. :)
