"Ella"bration (Miss Ella Brennan The Book & Movie)
Ti Adelaide Martin
New Orleans native Ti Adelaide Martin credits her mother, Ella Brennan, the “grande dame” of her family’s restaurant business (which currently includes Commander’s Palace, Café Adelaide and the Swizzle Stick Bar, and SoBou in New Orleans, as well as Brennan’s of Houston) for setting the stage for her love of the restaurant business. “When I was a child, she was always hosting these lavish parties at our house,” she recalls. “There were always lots of interesting people there from around the country, many from the culinary world."
We're so happy and proud to tell our friends about two exciting developments for our restaurant family: the upcoming release of a feature-length documentary and book about Ella Brennan.
Ella Brennan, “Miss Ella,” changed the way America eats. At age 18 she went to work at her brother’s bar on Bourbon street. The New Orleans dining scene had no idea what was about to hit it. Turns out one of America’s greatest business coaches is a woman. And her field is a restaurant. But it could have been anywhere.
This is the Great American Story.
The book debuts September 13 and can be purchased in our restaurant. The film debuts this fall. View the film teaser here.
