Restaurant Inspire Movie

While in New Orleans I got to experience the Great food and excellent service at “Dooky Chase” restaurant. They showed us and everyone there a warm hospitality. My Family (wife, daughter and I), really enjoyed ourselves while their. One of the highlights was the History lesson that we’ve learned while there. The Disney Movie “The Princess and the Frog” was inspired by Mrs. Leah Chase. The movie “The Princess and the Frog was inspired by the New Orleans Restaurant “Dooky Chase.” In the movie the young princess “Tiana” had a dream of owning her own restaurant. Tiana’s dream later became a reality as she served Gumbo and other Cajun food.I wish that I would have met her before she passed on.
