Lil' Dizzy's Cafe


1500 Esplanade Ave.
New Orleans LA 70116

Owned by Wayne Baquet of the Baquet family, one of the great Creole restaurateur families in New Orleans, this relaxed neighborhood joint serves up a popular lunch buffet.

At Lil' Dizzy's, producing great fried chicken is a matter of historical pride. Owner Wayne Baquet learned the restaurant trade from his father Eddie, namesake of the legendary 7th Ward restaurant Eddie's, who got into the business in the 1940s working at Paul Gross Chicken Coop with his aunt, Ada Baquet Gross. Lil' Dizzy's is the only Baquet-owned restaurant still going, and Wayne is serious about doing the Creole-Soul tradition proud.
