Homestyle: Known as the "Queen of Creole Cuisine," Leah Chase has fed Quincy Jones, Jesse Jackson, Duke Ellington, Thurgood Marshall, Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama and countless others. Ray Charles was such a fan that he wrote Early in the Morning about Dooky Chase, a family owned business in the Treme since 1941. This is real deal soul food – red beans and rice, fried chicken, okra, shrimp and grits and other staples served in a lovely, art-filled dining room. The lunch buffet is a great deal, geared to the tremendously hungry. Open Tuesday through Thursday for lunch, Friday for lunch and dinner. Reservations are definitely recommended. There's also a Dooky Chase's outlet at Louis Armstrong International Airport.
