New Orleans Holiday Traditions at Dickie Brennan & Co. Restaurants

We love a reason to celebrate and this season gives us many! From decked out holiday décor to reveillon dinners, there is no escaping the happiness of the holidays in our restaurants. Each has its own traditions – old and new for the young and old, focused on bringing friends and family together.  

Since Thanksgiving came late this year, we have a little less time to fit A LOT of festive fun in. So, go get to work!

Palace Café 

Weekday Lunches – The bell tradition continues! Get your Palace Café bell at lunch the month of December and jingle all the way through your day!

December 14th and 21st  – Sing-along Brunch at Palace Café. Bring the family and sing-along with the jazz band to all of your favorite Christmas classics. Rusty on the lyrics? No problem! You’ll get a song book to help you through all the choruses of Jingle Bells.
