NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – Brennan’s name will stay the same!
Brennan’s restaurant is coming back with a new owner. But it’s staying in the family.
Ralph Brennan bought the Brennan name at a federal auction Wednesday morning for $3 million. He said the iconic pink restaurant at 417 Royal Street will reopen in September.
Brennan’s had been a staple in the French Quarter for nearly 60 years until family in-fighting caused previous owner Pip Brennan to be evicted in June 2013.
Pip’s cousin, Ralph, bought the building and had planned on opening it with the name or not.
