Proposed Dickie Brennan Restaurant in Le Petit Theatre to Go Vintage
FRENCH QUARTER - Even though Le Petit Theatre's deal to sell the French Quarter playhouse to Dickie Brennan Restaurant Group is still pending the outcome of a vote of the membership, Brennan and the Theatre's Board of Directors presented their plans for the reconfigured space, which will include a Brennan restaurant, today.

Last month, Guild President Jim Walpole filed a temporary restraining order to halt the sale until a full meeting of the membership is held.

What's Cookin in the Big Oozy
This time, it was not too many chefs spoiling the broth; the broth was spoiled by the oil, and the chefs were in the gulf to see the sea firsthand. Paul Prudhomme, Dickie Brennan, and an all star crew of local chefs took a painful fieldtrip to the gulf yesterday. Elsewhere, Chuck Subra of La Cote Brasserie has put together another team of chefs to prepare food for the volunteers and fishermen toiling to defend our shoreline.
