Dooky Chase’s began in 1941 as a sandwich shop, and grew to become a spot where Civil Rights leaders met to discuss politics and culture. Legendary owner and chef Leah Chase, who sadly passed away at age 96 earlier this year, was often referred to as the “Queen of Creole Cuisine,” and her daily-changing lunch buffet is one of the city’s great meals. The restaurant’s famous fried chicken, which gets a little something extra from the addition of evaporated milk to the egg wash, is always available at both lunch and dinner, thankfully.
