Few restaurants in San Jose can claim the heritage and authenticity of Poor House Bistro, San Jose’s “New Orleans joint” on Autumn Street near SAP Center. With the blessing of his mother, Sally, owner Jay Meduri began remodeling his family’s home into a restaurant in 2000, opening five years later with a name that reflects its location in an Arts and Crafts House and the Poor Boy sandwich, one of New Orleans’ best known culinary treats. Besides being a favorite for crawfish boils and Mardi Gras, Poor House Bistro has come a premiere venue for blues acts who perform nightly on its patio courtyard.
