Brennan's reputation precedes it and to our great fortune, the food and service surpassed our expectations. My wife's lamb was moist and falling off the bone and my duck was as flavorful as I've ever tasted. The signature dessert, Bananas Foster, was perfectly prepared and...More

Loved the eggs benedict, delightful coffee and the bananas foster dessert (be sure to set your phone camera to slow motion video to capture the fabulous flames!). The service is so friendly and the food is absolutely delicious. It's the perfect Sunday brunch place!!

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

As others have said, the dress code varies some but my advice is no shorts or sandals but jeans and a collared shirt would be fine. Menu is awesome! Be sure and order a table side prepared item like steak Dianne, bananas... More

The original Brennan's, opened in 1946, recently emerged from an extensive renovation that spared no effort or expense by new co-owners Terry White and Ralph Brennan. Eight glamorous dining rooms, each steeped in New Orleans architecture and ambiance, celebrate the opulence of dining in a city where breakfast revelry is taken as seriously as a decadent dinner. Acclaimed Chef Slade Rushing's menus are rooted in Creole traditions and are bolstered with contemporary New Orleans influences. Marrying classic and modern techniques yields a decidedly innovative approach and enhances our local, seasonal offerings. Brennan's old-world elegance, fanciful decor and pampering service create a unique and sophisticated backdrop for a most memorable meal. Welcome!
