Chef Stephen Stryjewski reviews Gumbo z'herbes at Dooky Chase Restaurant
$$ | Southern | American
Seventh Ward
"Deeply rooted in Catholic lore, this green gumbo is a perfect combination of five smoked meats and seven different leafy greens. This is an only-in-New Orleans experience that is really only done right in the one and only Dooky Chase's."
Chef Dave Danhi reviews Fried chicken at Dooky Chase Restaurant
$$ | Southern | American
Seventh Ward
"The tales are true—this is an amazing fried chicken! Not overly seasoned and cooked perfectly. Make a reservation, go when they're busy and get the buffet. Be sure to save room for the peach cobbler... It's the silent hero of the meal."
