Chappy Hardy, Eating Right, Bite by Bite

Chappy Hardy is a writer, producer, and man-about-town in New Orleans. He's currently on a mission to eat his way across the southern United States, measuring the places he dines by delectability and cost-per-bite.

He speaks to Scott Simon from Lil' Dizzy's, a restaurant outside the French Quarter, about the eatery's daily buffet. The proprietor, Wayne Baquet, is the scion of a well-known New Orleans restaurant family, and carries the family tradition of "creole soul" cookery.
