The Owen Brennan's Story

All the flavor and flair of New Orleans in Memphis, Tennessee…that is the order of the day, whether your taste runs spicy or mild!  From mouth watering hand cut, Angus beef to fresh seafood or any of our Creole specialties such as Pasta Jambalya, Crayfish Etouffee’, Red Fish Perez, Catfish Beaudreaux and of course of famous Eggs Hussarde (an original of Brennan’s of New Orleans) and Eggs Benedict.
Owen Brennan’s is family owned and operated by Jim Baker and several of his family members dedicated to bringing New Orleans traditions to Memphis. Owen Brennan’s More
It’s Snowing and the Office Is Closed Honey, So What Do Ya’ Say We Elope Today?
January 2016
Well that’s exactly what Jarald Kosecki and his new wife Amanda did as they recounted their romantic story to Jim Baker over lunch at Owen Brennan’s this afternoon.

Amanda is employed as an HR Lead at Scholar Academies in Memphis and her husband Jarald is a Program Advisor for Fedex. Both of their offices were closed down today over the nasty winter weather. Wondering what they were going to do with their unexpected day off, Jarald asked Amanda, “What would you like to do today?” Amanda replied, “Why don’t we elope.” The couple checked with their minister to see if he was available on such short notice and the rest is matrimonial history.

It turns out that Owen Brennan’s was the first restaurant the couple went to together after they first moved to Memphis 4 years ago. Amanda and Jarald decided that having lunch together at Owen Brennan’s was the perfect way to celebrate their impromptu newlywed status. Owner, Jim Baker was so tickled by the young couple’s romantic story that he provided them with lunch and a Champaign toast on the house, as a wedding gift.

We wish the very best of luck to both of you Mr. and Mrs. Jarald Kosecki. What a heartwarming, romantic story for a cold and nasty winter day.  See more pictures on Facebook.
