Willie Mae’s Scotch House located at 2401 St. Ann Street serves some of the best fried chicken in the nation. Willie Mae Seaton moved to New Orleans from Crystal Springs, Mississippi with her husband. Trained in southern cooking by her mother, Willie Mae opened her restaurant in the late 1950’s. It was originally a Scotch House until patrons started asking for some of the good smelling food she would cook for her family that they would smell from the streets. Willie Mae’s Scotch House to this day serves various kinds of pork chops, butter beans, red beans and rice, other dishes and her infamous fried chicken.
