Brennan's Post K

  • 5

Is this place just a tourist trap? Has it declined post-k? I went there about 15 years ago and fell in love (or is it just a warm fuzzy now) with the eggs hussard.

  1. I went post K, right after re-opening in June 06. It was outstanding. The eggs hussard were delicious, as was the milk punch, turtle soup, and crepes fitzgerald. Better than ever.

      many thanks. My aunt liven in Metairie just a few blocks from the levy and lost everything. We're going down to celebrate her new house and have several must stops at her local haunts that have managed to rebuild, but she wants to "live it up" there and hadn't heard one way or the other (she's not much of a chow hound, but absolutely a "foodie" - who isn't there?)

        I gotta tell ya, I always feel ripped off after eating at Brennan's. It's a perfectly fine place, it's just that most things on the menu are either 1)ordinary renditions of dishes that reach greatness at other placee in town or 2)overpriced (I've never understood the whole breakfast thing, except as a stroke of marketing genius). Granted, it is still good food & hasn't slipped into the weird twilight zone realm of Antoine's, but I'd go to Ralph's on the Park (if she's set on a Brennan's joint) or Commander's (which is lovely inside since Katrina).

          Actually, Commander's is one of our dinners Wouldn't miss them for the world. Mostly looking for a Sunday Brunch with Eggs Benedict-ish food. Ralph's on the Park?

            Ralph's on the Park has excellent brunch. Most delicious croque monsieur I've ever had.
