Chris’ Jazz Café’s Chef/Owner Mark DeNinno has introduced a Customer Appreciation Week lunch menu to give back to the people who have helped to keep Philadelphia’s top jazz club in business for nearly 30 years. The menu, which is available from October 1 through the 5th at the restaurant located at 1421 Sansom Street, features a different $5 lunch option each day through the first week of October.
On Monday, guests can order the Cheeseburger Club served with golden shoestring fries; Tuesday features a Truffle Chicken Pot Pie; Wednesday offers the restaurant’s New Orleans Style Jambalaya; Thursday’s special is Chris’ French Dip Sandwich; and Friday’s feature is a Crispy Fish Sandwich. All specials are $5 apiece, and served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sandwiches are served with a choice of salad or fries.
On Friday, guests can also choose between a few discounted additions, including a Bayou Shrimp & Crab Cake Sandwich ($10); Steak Frites ($12); and the JJ Surf and Turf — char-grilled steak topped with shrimp and a crab cake, served with a blue cheese salad and golden shoestring fries ($20).
“Our customers have been taking care of us since we opened, so we constantly look for ways to give back to them, and this is one way of doing so,” said DeNinno, who has orchestrated Customer Appreciation Week at Chris’ for 8 years. “You won’t find lunches — quality and portion size — like this anywhere for only $5, so we hope to see many of our regulars and plenty of new faces swing in as we offer these specials for the week.”
