  1. I saw that on the news this morning. How incredibly sad! I loved that restaurant.

    1. I hope they reopen. They are one of my favs in Houston and my husband grew up with the tradition of special Sunday jazz brunches there.

      1. Thoughts and prayers to the Brennan family and to the employee's that were injured as well..just so sad.

          Three employees injured in the fire with bad burns. I hope they make it.

        2. As I watched the hurricane coverage worried for my mom in Houston Friday night I saw this happen. Having shared a few spectacular meals there, including a night at the chef's table, I am quite saddened by this loss. I also own their cookbook, signed by the chef. I plan to make something out of it soon to pay homage to this institution. I do hope they rebuild.

          My thoughts and prayers are with those that were burned and with the Brennan family and all the families now without jobs.
