And, to make your experience fresh and fun, we frequently rotate the menu and create a unique twist. We recently kicked off monthly rotating meal specials that highlight female culinary pioneers. No franchise food here–just inspired food with a twist.

Femme Fatale of Food

Leah Chase

Leah Chase, or “𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐐𝐮𝐞𝐞𝐧 𝐨𝐟 𝐂𝐫𝐞𝐨𝐥𝐞 𝐂𝐮𝐢𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐞” was a famous cookbook author, Chef, and activist. Leah and her husband, “Dooky Jr.,” a jazz trumpeter, took over his parents’ little sandwich shop they started in 1939. This little sandwich shop in the Treme area of New Orleans moved across the street and evolved into the area’s first white tablecloth restaurant. When she started out, Leah believed she would be the welcoming hostess, but with nobody at the helm in the kitchen, she tied an apron on to “help out” and subsequently changed her life.

Notable for its delicious preparations of creole specialties and Leah Chase’s hospitable nature, the restaurant quickly became a meeting place for many in the civil rights community. She was also an avid collector of African American art. It decorated the walls of the interior of the restaurant. Artists, political figures, sports icons, and visiting travelers flocked to Dooky Chase for the “New Orleans experience” with Mrs. Chase at the helm.

Always working, Leah was in the kitchen until her death at age ninety-six. The Dooky Chase restaurant lives on, and I highly recommend traveling to New Orleans to experience it. Leah’s grandson, Edgar “Dook” Chase IV, is now Executive Chef and, like his Grandmother, a community activist and New Orleans Museum of Art board member.
