There are many New Orleans restaurants with storied histories, but none quite like the one at Dooky Chase’s, which was home to organizing meetings during the Civil Rights Movement, fed A.P. Tureaud and Thurgood Marshall, and even served its famous fried chicken to President Obama. Get a plate of that chicken for yourself while you scan the walls for works by Black artists - the restaurant was also the first gallery for Black creators here. If you happen by on Holy Thursday (the last before Easter Sunday), try to get a bowl of the gumbo z’herbes, a traditional preparation of the local dish made with nearly a dozen greens.
