Brennan’s, Icon of New Orleans’ French Quarter, is ‘Restored and Reborn’ on November 25


Brennan's will reopen on November 25. 

Brennan’s, the historic French Quarter restaurant which first opened its doors in 1956 with a “signature pink façade” which closed rather abruptly in the summer of 2013, “has been restored, reborn, and will reopen November 25,” the restaurant announced in a press release on Monday, November 17.

Over the course of the next several weeks, Brennan’s will celebrate its return beginning with breakfast and lunch service between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.

Dinner service will be added on December 5, and finally, Brennan’s will be open in its entirety on December 16, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week.

The restaurant’s new owner, Ralph Brennan, has hired Slade Rushing as his executive chef, of whom Brennan said, “Rushing’s pedigree and experience will complement his long line of gastronomic forebears in the Brennan’s kitchen, but will present a distinctly lighter style that our modern-day guests are sure to appreciate.”

Brennan’s is accepting reservations as of Monday, November 17.
