This jazz venue at the Pearl shopping and dining destination has a surprisingly sophisticated menu for a club. The menu offerings run from mainstream (shrimp cocktail, steak Diane, apple pie) to slightly global (jerk chicken, mushroom ravioli) and we haven’t been disappointed with anything we’ve tried. Recently we relished the Jazz Burger, a juicy and flavorful Wagyu beef patty with applewood-smoked bacon and remoulade accompanied by excellent fries. Sides were quite fine as well—both the butternut squash risotto and the roasted cauliflower appealed to our vegetarian friends. Texas pecan pie is always our pick for desert and we like to order it in advance for delivery to the table mid-show, perfect with the tunes. Incidentally, the schedule is such that you can order and begin dining before the music starts. There’s plenty of variety in the seating, too, including at the bar and a number of tables alongside the stage and small dance floor. In addition to local guest artists and house musicians (led by pianist Doc Watkins, who also happens to be Jazz, TX’s owner), nationally acclaimed musicians are also booked regularly—food for the soul as well as the body..
