You'll have to wait a bit longer to taste the next chapter in the Brennan's restaurant saga: The opening of Ted Brennan's Decatur has been pushed back a few months, reports Ian McNulty, with an opening now slated for early fall.
Heading up the kitchen will be chef Lazone Randolph, who served as executive chef at the original Brennan's Restaurant for eight years. Proprietor Ted Brennan tells the Advocate he's hoping to "revive some of the magic" from the historic Royal Street legend, which of course reopened late last year after changing hands and receiving a multi-million dollar renovation.
McNulty's got the scoop on plans for the new Decatur Street spot, located just three blocks from Brennan's:
Their plan calls for a large new restaurant covering about 12,000 square feet over two floors. The main dining room and a large bar will occupy the ground floor while upstairs will have a series of private dining rooms with names like the Patio Room, the Red Room and the Randolph Room, after the chef.
