On October 18, 1980, brothers, Brandy, Jack and Sedgewick, realized their lifelong dream of starting their own family restaurant and opened their doors to the public. Being the eldest, Brandy took the leadership role and managed the business. From the open kitchen, Sedgewick’s culinary skills became the main attraction. Jack, the youngest, started as a server, but now can be found running the show.
Brandy Ho’s is located in San Francisco’s old red-light district, the Barbary Coast. In the early 20th century, this area was filled with jazz clubs, concert saloons and even brothels. Down the block from City Lights bookstore and around the corner from Mr. Bing’s, Brandy Ho’s has become part of the neighborhood staples.
