WHEN 2006 CHEF TO WATCH SLADE RUSHING was named executive chef at Brennan’s, which reopened after an extensive renovation in 2014, he was faced with a unique dilemma: how to maintain the integrity of the historic French Quarter restaurant’s menu while updating it for the modern palate. He set about refining some of its classic dishes with his fresh, lighter approach to cooking while retaining those familiar flavors that diners have come to know and love. One traditional Brennan’s favorite that Slade has left his mark on is the Filet Stanley, which he has put his own twist on by replacing certain elements of the dish with elevated components.
