Long before the food truck craze, food delivery apps and avocado toast mania, Libby and I opened our first restaurant in San Francisco in 2007. I named it Brenda’s French Soul Food. I missed the fun and flavors of my hometown, New Orleans, and I wanted to share that with the Bay Area. The place was tiny, in a sketchy neighborhood and an instant success. Fast-forward more than 10 years and two more businesses, Libby and I are thrilled to finally bring our latest restaurant to the East Bay. Brenda’s is a fast casual cafe inspired by my favorite places growing up—relaxed, lively and fun. From award-winning fried chicken to our famous cream biscuits and signature stuffed beignets, we’re serving up our most beloved dishes, as well as a few new ones.
Binny’s presents a tailored menu of original and classic cocktails with shareable plates of uncomplicated, veritable bites.
