Hg2 : The Hedonist


One of the best Creole eateries in town, Brennan’s restaurant serves up imaginative cuisine in a luxury setting. The Brennan clan, which runs many of New Orleans’ best restaurants, began its culinary empire in this imposing French Quarter townhouse in 1946. Brennan’s on Royal Street is a luxurious setting for imaginative Creole food, but this restaurant is world-renowned for its sumptuous brunches. Brunch here is a sophisticated affair featuring egg dishes dripping in rich sauces, like eggs Benedict or eggs Sardou (a poached egg on an artichoke topped with hollandaise sauce), washed down with a Ramos gin fizz or a Bloody Mary. Even at breakfast, an order of bananas Foster (sautéed bananas in a rum sauce over ice cream) is a requirement. After all, Brennan’s invented the dessert. The best tables are on the second-floor balcony overlooking the lush patio.
