In this Oct. 22, 2013 photo, Ralph Brennan, nephew of Brennan’s founder Owen E. Brennan, poses for a photo in New Orleans. Brennan says he was unable to reach a lease agreement with his cousins to save the original building that housed his family’s famous restaurant. His hope now is to open a new restaurant by spring that will, in his words, “be representative of the family.” (AP Photo/Sean Gardner)
