Historic French Quarter restaurant reopens Tuesday
Then and now, The building in the 1920s compared to the building in 2014
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -
Following a legal fight and a long renovation process, a historic Creole French Quarter restaurant reopened on Tuesday.
Brennan's, located in the 400 block of Royal Street, opened its doors on Tuesday following a year of renovations. On Tuesday, the restaurant unveiled its signature Brennan's sign outside of the newly renovated restaurant.
Ralph Brennan and his business partner Terry White spent millions redesigning the restaurant. Ted and Pip Brennan were evicted back in June 2013 and the doors closed.
Ralph Brennan bought everything - the business, the name and the logo - from bankruptcy court.
He spent a year with his business partner working to renovate the building that stood on Royal Street since 1795. Brennan's has occupied the building since 1956.
Tuesday's opening starts with just breakfast and lunch. They are taking reservations and will eventually expand to dinner service.
