"I want to show people the breadth and depth of Maumee's food culture and to be able to share and gain new perspectives on the food with them. All of our food is born locally. It's the foundation of what we do."
A true devotee to the local food movement, Native Toledoan and Chef Joseph Jacobsen has been revolutionizing Maumee's & the surrounding areas culinary scene since he took over Degage Jazz Cafe & Fine Dining 4 years ago. He shares his passion for connecting local farmers and consumers with monthly cooking classes, seasonally-changing menu, locally-grown & sources produce, meats & dairy. The International Culinary Institute-alum brings his farm-to-table passion fruition at Degage & diners love the spot's refined blend of locally-grown produce and use of fresh costal seafood as do local foodies.
He fuses his extensive knowledge and experience of farm-to-table practices with his devout passion for locally sourced and foraged products and authentic French fare. Outside the restaurant, Jacobsen frequents local farmers markets to scout the best local merchants and products for Degage and his own family kitchen.
This is one of our favorite go-to spots for a nice dinner out. The food is always great with lots of interesting options - and names. Tonight I had the Lambert's Coq au vin, which was delicious served with "mashers" (mashed potatoes) and pearl onions. My husband had the Duck & "waffles." The waffles were really small potato pancakes though not the kind of potato pancakes I've had before and tasty yellow carrots rounded out the plate. His was the winner between two very good meals. The beer cheddar chili was quite good too and i liked the apple lemon dressing served with the dinner salad.
We were seated in the dining room instead of the jazz cafe/lounge on this visit. The seating was comfortable in this historic Maumee building. The lounge is a bit cozier & more intimate and is especially nice when there is live music to enjoy. We'll definitely be back!Kelly D.10/25/15
