The Family
Behind The Food

At Lil’ Dizzy’s, producing great fried chicken is a matter of historical pride. Founder Wayne Baquet, Sr learned the restaurant trade from his father Eddie Baquet, Sr namesake of the legendary 7th Ward restaurant Eddie’s. Wayne, Sr retired in November 2021. Lil’ Dizzy’s Cafe is the only Baquet-owned restaurant still going, and it is now owned and operated by Wayne, Jr and his wife Arkesha. They are making the Creole-Soul tradition proud.

The Dizzy Name

After stepping away from the restaurant industry in 2002, Wayne got restless and began to think about opening a new restaurant. At that time, Wayne Baquet’s grandson, Zachary Baquet, was a talented trumpeter in the band at St. Augustine High School. Wayne decided to give his new idea to his grandson’s namesake. He named his new, iconic restaurant, nestled in the heart of New Orleans, “Lil Dizzy’s Café.” Lil’ Dizzy’s Cafe opened in 2005 on the corner of Esplanade Avenue and N. Robertson Street not too far from where the Chicken Coop once stood.
