The words “jazz” and “Monahans” would seem an unlikely combination, but here they are. Inside this former movie theater, the Chairman crooning in the background, a band of smiling servers dish up items like a grilled tenderloin salad kicked up with tomatoes and blue cheese and a plate-size chicken-fried steak with a swinging cream gravy.

The owners made their favorite music the governing theme here, and they frequently host jazz bands on the mezzanine. Monahans seems to dig it.
