The pink Royal Street building, closed since last summer and stripped of its name shortly thereafter, will once again be called Brennan’s.

The bankruptcy judge overseeing the liquidation of Brennan’s Inc. approved the sale of the former restaurant’s trade name and other assets, including recipes, on Wednesday to an investment group that includes prominent New Orleans restaurateur Ralph Brennan.

Judge Jerry A. Brown accepted an offer of $3 million for the assets from 417 Royal Street LLC, the same group that purchased the Brennan’s building at a foreclosure auction last year.

In December, a group of creditors forced Brennan’s Inc., the company that until last summer operated the Royal Street restaurant of the same name, into Chapter 7 bankruptcy to collect on claims of more than $60,000.

The recent sale essentially shifts ownership of the Brennan’s name from one branch of the prominent restaurant family to another.

The Brennans famously fractured in the 1970s, with one side — the so-called Royal Street Brennans — retaining control of the flagship restaurant. The other side, which included Ralph Brennan, went on to open other restaurants around town.

Together, members of the Brennan family operate a wide array of eateries, including Commander’s Palace, Mr. B’s Bistro and Dickie Brennan’s Steakhouse.

Ralph Brennan, whose Ralph Brennan Restaurant Group owns and operates Ralph’s on the Park, Red Fish Grill, Cafe NOMA, Heritage Grill and café b, previously had no role in the Royal Street restaurant.

Over the years, the two sides have faced off in court more than once about who had the right to use the family name and how.

Along with the Brennan’s name, the list of assets sold includes the Brennan’s rooster logo, recipes, menus, a website, customer lists, employee lists, restaurant memorabilia and other property “at the heart of what makes the dining experience at Brennan’s Restaurant what it was,” according to court documents.

For decades, Brennan’s on Royal Street was a fixture of the New Orleans culinary scene. “Breakfast at Brennan’s,” a lavish morning meal often accompanied by wine and cocktails, helped propel it to fame. The restaurant had 12 dining rooms and a large patio with a total capacity of 550 people. It opened as a restaurant in 1956, though the building dates back to 1795 and was previously used as a residence, a bank and an events hall.

The venerable restaurant was evicted from the 417 Royal St. building on June 27, about a month after the building was sold for $6.85 million in a foreclosure auction to Leggo/4, now known as 417 Royal Street. The gold script font spelling out “Brennan’s” and beneath it “417 Rue Royale” was scrubbed from restaurant’s entry wall in September, leaving only an outline etched onto the building’s façade.

The building is undergoing renovations. It will reopen as Brennan’s restaurant at the end of September, said Greg Beuerman, a spokesman for Ralph Brennan.

Few other details about the new restaurant have been made public, but Brennan announced last month that Slade Rushing, previously co-chef of the CBD restaurant MiLa, had been hired as executive chef.

The restaurant’s menu is still being finalized, but “it’s safe to say there will be many things there that people recognize,” Beuerman said.
