We intentionally chose an early reservation, it being St. Patrick's Day weekend. We were rewarded with a garden-room table, with views of the sun, fountain, and turtles. Being traditionalists, we ordered eggs Benedict, still the best I have tasted, with perfectly poached eggs, locally smoked...More

I would recommend lunch or brunch. They are know for their Eggs Benedict with several variations, the turtle soup, and the Bananas Foster.

They will certainly have some dishes to accommodate your dietary restrictions. But I agree with others that you won’t be able to enjoy the classic favorites. There are many other vegetarian friendly restaurants that would... 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!
