Chapter IV Restaurant by Dook Chase


New Orleans, Louisiana

Completion Date

January 2023

The new Chapter IV restaurant by Chef Edgar “Dook” Chase, IV is located in Downtown New Orleans. At 1315 Gravier Avenue on the first floor of the Thirteen15 Building, the restaurant provides guests with a light-filled and art-filled environment.

This space was designed with a fresh, modern feel with touches of culture woven through the original artwork. The restaurant features ample natural light and a welcoming atmosphere. The mid-century time period of the building lent itself to the interior materials used in the restaurant as well as the style of the furnishings. The overall feel is a modern take on mid-century design, clean and simple, allowing the artwork to tell the generational story of Chapter IV. The large bar serves grab-and-go items as well as hand-crafted cocktails. An outdoor patio engages the community and provides an area for live music.

“Dook” Chase is the fourth-generation son of the Chase family, known as the first family of New Orleans Creole cuisine, and the grandson of the late Leah Chase. This new restaurant spot will serve breakfast, brunch, and lunch and feature modern Creole dishes and hand-crafted cocktails, all with a nod to the past.
