In recent weeks, Jeff Eats has been hearing some terrific things about a store-front “soul food” joint in Sunrise…
Gigi’s Music Café, 4385 Northwest 88th Avenue, Sunrise, Florida 33351, (954) 748-9494.
From what I understand the joint has great food and all types of entertainment from poets to rock bands to magicians…not so “sure” about the poet-thing, but Jeff Eats loves a good rock band not to mention a good magician..
For what it’s worth, I’ve heard that Gigi’s fried chicken/waffles dish is simply amazing.
Jeff Eats hasn’t had a chance to check this joint out…just thought that some of you might like to beat-me there (like-get there before I do, not jump-me when I get there!).
Take a look at www.gigismusiccafe.com for menu/and other particulars.
One final note, a few months ago Jeff Eats caught the stage show of an absolutely dynamite “magician” Remy Connor www.theremyconnor.com…from what I understand Remy “works” Gigi’s on a regular basis—so maybe you can kill two birds with one stone–if you know what I mean!!
Gigi’s Music Café is open Monday-Wednesday 11am-9pm, Thursday 11am-11pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-midnight, closed on Sunday.
long shot here but I’ve been to this joint. http://www.theremyconnor.com http://www.gigismusiccafe.com
it is as you say terrific.
the fried chicken/waffle dish is off the chart same for their burgers.
they have all kinds of entertainment and karooke.
this is a very laid back kind of a joint.
I loved it.
by the way I saw remy there and the guy really kills it.
not to take away the surprise for your readers but remy is a whole lot more than your average magician.
this joint isn’t for the fancy shmancy crowd.

oh my goodness Jeff…thank you so much. So nice and you haven’t even been
Thanks again and I can’t wait to hear what you have to say when you do
make it out there. I myself can’t decide if her chicken and waffles or her
meatloaf is in my future for dinner tonight.
Jeff, Checked out both Gigi’s site and Remy’s site.
Now this joint looks cool.
Definitely going to give it a try.
Remy is definitely a guy I would love to see perform.
Looks like a good one.
Jeff, how about a meet and greet with you when Remy is at Gigi’s….. Waffles for everyone!
Just had a chance to read your comments.
About a year ago, Jeff Eats contacted numerous restaurants “seeing” if he could secure discounts for Jeff Eats’ readers. Trust me- a large number were contacted and only ONE agreed to give you readers a break on the check. To make a long story short, the “program” never happened.
If at least 10 Jeff Eat readers agree to a “dinner together” Jeff Eats is in.
Let’s see the response.
Thanks for reading…
I’m in…… Looking forward to breaking waffles with you!
I’m in too…….. when??
I will be going there this Friday for Remy’s show. There will also be an incredible burlesque performer there.
Come say hi.
