Brennan’s of Houston, 3300 Smith Street, Houston Texas

Brennan’s of Houston is housed at 3300 Smith Street in Midtown, in a historic John Staub designed building and was the headquarters for Staub’s architectural firm in 1929.  The Junior Leaue of Houston was next to occupy the property before Brennan’s took over the space in 1967.

In 2008, when Hurricane Ike swept through town the restaurant was devasted by a fire.  The famous restaurant has since been renovated by Studio RED Architects.   Acccording to Paper City Magazine, the renovation included gutting the interior, but kept the structure’s most iconic elements such as the Terms of Endearment Room and vaulted ceiling and exposed trusses of the Chef’s Dining Room/Ballroom.

The firm also paid homage to Staub by naming a new private dining alcove for him.  The photo below depicts the John Staub room, just a small portion of the renovation.  I had lunch recently here, and this is where we sat.  The room is very cozy and I prefer it to the larger dining room.
