What a sad bit of news from NOLA. The Brennan family are set to lose everything in bankruptcy court and the rest of us will lose, as well. Looks like mismanagement and even the Gulf oil spill all had a hand in doing them in. Hopefully someone will resurrect the name, recipes and service and we'll once again have them back on the scene in NOLA.

Oh NO!  Commander's Palace is one of my favorite go to places.  Breakfast at Brennan's as well.  Love my Eggs Sardou, creamed onion soup and strawberries in real cream.
 
I live for Bananas Foster!
 
Terrible news is right.

Commander's Palace is unaffected by this. That's yet another Brennan.

Bankruptcy can hide all manner of agendas.
 
Back in the day they'd hire an arsonist; these days they just get lawyers!

When we had brunch at Brennan's years ago, I nearly gagged when I received the bill. Curious how they could lose money at those prices.

I ate there around 2003.  Oyster soup, eggs Benedict, bananas Foster.  It was divine.  The service was superb and we had a beautiful table overlooking the courtyard.

When we lived in Houston, we often would visit NO, and Brennans was always on the list of places to go..not cheap, but elegant, fine food and service. Sad, guess to many hands in the pot to make it work.

Why was dinein44 flagged? Like him/her? I always enjoyed any of the various different Brennan's food but like JRPfeff, not always the prices.

dinein44 was flagged because he/she blatantly plagiarized mar52's post word for word.
