Beloved po-boy queen Dorothy "Dot" Domilise passed away last Friday, June 14, in New Orleans. She was 90 years old.
Miss Dot was a fixture behind the counter at her family's business, Domilise's Restaurant, where she served po-boys for more than 70 years. We honored Miss Dot in 2006 with one of our Tabasco Guardians of the Tradition awards. And, of course, we collected her story.
Below is an excerpt from her 2006 interview. Visit our NOLA Eats oral history project online for more.
