LRA Inducts Dickie Brennan into the LRA Hall of Fame

METAIRIE, La.—The Louisiana Restaurant Association (LRA) is pleased to announce that it has inducted Dickie Brennan, of Dickie Brennan & Company in New Orleans, into the LRA Hall of Fame. Brennan was honored at the 2011 LRA Awards Gala August 6, 2011 at the New Orleans Marriott.

Brennan co-owns and operates three restaurants in the French Quarter: Palace Café, Dickie Brennan Steakhouse and Bourbon House and has been an LRA member since 1992. He serves on the National Restaurant Association board and was LRA Chair in 2001. His philanthropy and service to the industry is widely recognized, having received numerous awards and accolades on behalf of his businesses in the last 20 years.

“Dickie hails from a long history of restaurateurs who have solidified New Orleans as a world-class culinary destination,” said LRA Chair Tommy Cvitanovich. “On behalf of the LRA, I am so happy to recognize his contributions to our industry.”
