A fantastic steakhouse in New Orleans, Louisiana.

By Hope S. Philbrick

It is my personal opinion that steakhouses are the most over-rated, over-priced restaurants in America. And so it means a whole heck of a lot when I give one hearty praise. Halfway through a multi-course dinner at Dickie Brennan’s Steakhouse in New Orleans, I found myself thinking this guy needs to open a sister restaurant in my hometown of Atlanta so I can dine at it more often. Each subsequent bite seemed only to offer further proof. Seriously. This steakhouse is impressive, with a menu that gives classic American fare a contemporary Creole twist.

Part of a famed New Orleans restaurant family, Dickie Brennan has extensive restaurant industry experience. Before opening a restaurant, he worked under Chef Paul Prudhomme at Commander’s Palace and cooked at some of the most famous restaurants in Paris and at Delmonico’s restaurant in Mexico City. He’s on the boards of the James Beard Foundation and the Southern Food & Beverage Museum. In short, this guy knows food. He deftly gives traditional dishes a modern edge. What’s more, each of his restaurants offers a unique, comfortably elegant environment where energy doesn’t come across only as loud noise. Each delivers impeccable service, divine wine pairing suggestions and skilled chefs working magic with top-quality local ingredients.

Some dishes created at Dickie Brennan’s restaurants—like crabmeat cheesecake, andouille crusted fish, catfish pecan and white chocolate bread pudding—are routinely copied. But why settle for an imitator when you can savor the original?

  1. I could not agree more. Dickie Brennan’s is a must for any visit to NOLA. We go every time we are in town and always are impressed by the food and the service. I don’t even find it to be expensive when you factor in that the meal and service are never compromised. The other impressive element for me is that the bartenders are experienced and know exactly how to make consistent drinks. We’ve sat beside a table of 17 and every entre was placed on the table at exactly the same time. The only other steakhouse that was ever this good was Allan Albert’s of Las Vegas. (now gone) I dare say that no one in NOLA puts a finer meal on a table with better service.
