Commander’s Palace and its related restaurants Café Adelaide and SoBou are honoring Ella Brennan in November as her 90th birthday approaches. Here’s what to look for:
- Outside Commander’s Palace, a giant gift-wrapped package is displayed for well-wishers to sign birthday messages for Brennan. Inside the foyer, a life-size cutout of Brennan greets guests.
- In the Commander’s Palace dining room, quotes from Brennan are printed on cards as conversation starters.
- Special multicourse menus are offered this month at all three restaurants, with creative takes on some of Brennan’s favorite flavors, including a modern riff on red beans and rice, smoked duck and Irish coffee. Each restaurant also is serving specialty cocktails concocted in her honor.
