Located at 2301 Orleans Avenue in the Tremé community of New Orleans, Louisiana, Dooky Chase is a wonderful dining establishment that has proudly serviced its patrons for four generations!

Founded by Edgar “Dooky” Chase, Sr. and Emily Chase (née Tenette), it began in 1939 as a stand where they sold lottery tickets and sold homemade po’boy sandwiches.  In 1941, the Chase couple opened its doors at a site located on a corner of Orleans Avenue and North Miro Street, where it, according to the restaurant’s website, “blossomed into a thriving bar and later a respected family restaurant … (that) soon became the meeting place for music, entertainment, civil rights and culture in New Orleans.”
