About Us

The Dickie Brennan family of restaurants includes four restaurants located in the heart of New Orleans' picturesque French Quarter. Each of our restaurants is dedicated to showcasing the unique culinary history of New Orleans by featuring the freshest local ingredients prepared using traditional techniques with a modern twist. 

The Dickie Brennan family of restaurants was founded in 1991 with the opening of Palace Café. This classic New Orleans restaurant, located at the foot of the French Quarter, serves contemporary Creole food in an upbeat and lively grand cafe. The restaurant, housed in the historic Werlein music building, is constantly evolving Creole dishes and creating new favorites. 

Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse opened in 1998, and features straightforward USDA beef with a New Orleans touch. At Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse, we tap into the Brennan family's 60 years of expertise in the art of beef preparation. That's why we grill our chops, sear our strips, and broil our filets. The same level of detail extends to the service. Guests are treated to a grand dining experience, with all the hospitality for which New Orleans is noted. Because of this, discerning locals as well as national publications have taken notice. Travel & Leisure named it one of the Best Steakhouses in the U.S. in March 2013, while USA Today noted its "mouth-watering steaks with an unusual twist." 

Bourbon House Seafood & Oyster Bar, New Orleans' premiere oyster bar and seafood restaurant, is all about local seafood. If it's not in season, you won't find it on the menu. The restaurant boasts a lively atmosphere with huge picture windows overlooking Bourbon Street. Guests are invited to enjoy an incredible menu of classic New Orleans dishes complemented by new favorites in the main dining room, featuring handcrafted wrought iron and custom millwork, or to dine on fresh Gulf oysters at the oyster bar. And, Bourbon House is more than just a name – the restaurant offers the city's most extensive and impressive list of small batch and single barrel bourbons and is home to the famed New Orleans Bourbon Society. 

Tableau, Dickie Brennan's latest production, opened in the spring of 2013. Located on Jackson Square at Le Petit Theatre, right in the heart of the French Quarter, Tableau showcases regional ingredients and classic French Creole dishes with a unique twist. A grand staircase spans three stories of the restaurant, connecting private dining rooms as well as courtyard and balcony dining with a view of Jackson Square for an authentic New Orleans dining experience. Tableau and Le Petit Theatre, the nation's oldest community theatre, share a lobby, courtyard and restroom facilities, and pre-theatre menus are available to complete an evening of entertainment on performance nights.
