NEW ORLEANS - In a small corner of the Central Business District, you'll find the cradle of jazz.

The 400 block of South Rampart Street was the home of several clubs where such greats as Buddy Bolden and Jelly Roll Morton performed in the early years of the twentieth century.

One of those clubs was Little Gem Saloon, which has now been renovated and reopened as a restaurant and jazz club by Dr. Nicolas Bazan.

He joined us in the kitchen with his Executive Chef Robert Bruce.

You can find great food there any day of the week. The restaurant is open Monday for lunch only. Dinner is served Tuesday through Saturday. There's a brunch on Sunday.

For more information on Little Gem Saloon, including their entertainment schedule, go to http://www.littlegemsaloon.com/.
