Brennan’s Restaurant

Creole in French Quarter

One of the grande dames of Creole dining, Brennan's has undergone an enormous overhaul. It still offers decadent breakfasts and cocktail ‘eye-openers’ to start the day. But the cuisine has gotten a little more international, even as it remains old-school rich: roasted pork tenderloin ($28) and lump crab ($34) to name a few. Live music makes it even better.
