"Nitty gritty Basin and Orleans Street"

Every since Louis Armstrong fired that pistol on the corner of Basin and st.ann it's been off to the races for those who dare venture on to the gritty perils that is basin street,which turns into Orleans st.
Rich in history and mystic the street is most famous for it's jazz and blues music houses,plus it also bolsters one of the words most famous restaurants....Dooky Chase's,were Mrs. Leah chase STILL TO THIS DAY PREPARES ONE OF THE MEANEST POTS OF GUMBO on this God's green earth,and will sing most vocalist under the table they just dined at.
Now, this street is not for the tame nor the faint of heart because it is also home to one of New Orleans most ruthless housing projects(the lafitte) which resides right across the street from Dooky chase's Restaurant.
All those Presidents and entertainers just don't know how lucky they were to be dining in the Queen of Basin and Orleans st . Restaurant or that meal would have not digested so well,but threw all of this it is more than worth the trip into New Orleans history to come on down to BASIN and ORLEANS.
