The walls of Jazz: A Louisiana Kitchen displayed jazz and Mardi Gras memorabilia.

Diners who come to Jazz: A Louisiana Kitchen in downtown Omaha are being greeted with a sign on the door:

“After 13+ amazing years of patronage, Jazz is unfortunately shutting its doors.”

The restaurant, which opened in 2006, was part of a small chain, with three locations in metro Kansas City, one in Columbia, Missouri, and one in Lubbock, Texas. Its website indicates those restaurants remain open. It served a variety of Cajun and Creole dishes and was decorated in Mardi Gras style, with New Orleans Saints and Louisiana State University sports posters.

As of Tuesday, the Omaha restaurant’s phone was no longer in service and its website was disabled.

Here are the city's 38 essential restaurants
