417 Royal St
New Orlean, LA
You are probably getting tired of hearing this but Brennans is…
1-another place we visit every single time we come (see Port of Call)
2-another experience in New Orleans that you cannot have anywhere else (see Cafe Du Monde)
So…you really should go….and you really should go for an absolutely over the top breakfast.
When you first enter you are greeted by the hostesses and then immediately escorted to the bar (Yes, I know it it the morning, but just go with it) where they share a full breakfast drink menu. I went traditional with a bloody mary but it was way above ordinary. I think the best part were the spicy pickled green beans.
On this trip there were two couples….three of us ordered the New Orleans Breakfast which includes and appetizer, entree and dessert. D and I both ordered the MAUDE’S SEAFOOD OKRA GUMBO- This is a slightly spicy and totally flavorful gumbo with large chunks of seafood.
I chose SHRIMP SARDOU which is “Deliciously spicy fried shrimp atop sliced artichoke bottoms nestled in a bed of creamed spinach and covered with Hollandaise sauce”. I could eat only about 1/3 of the huge, delicious entree but don’t despair D ate the rest the next day.
We both selected the house specialty for dessert-BANANAS FOSTER “A Brennan Creation and now World-Famous. Bananas sautéed in butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and banana liqueur, then flamed in rum. Served over vanilla ice cream. Scandalously Delicious!” This is an entire production created right at your table…I don’t even like bananas and I just love it!
