Located in the heart of the warehouse district, Emeril's New Orleans is Chef Emeril Lagasse's flagship restaurant. The bustling dining destination has been the talk of the town since its opening in 1990 and has earned rave reviews and accolades for 25 years, including Esquire magazine's "Restaurant of the Year" and Wine Spectator's "Grand Award" for 14 consecutive years. Credited as the birthplace of Chef Emeril's infamous "New New Orleans" cuisine, the restaurant consistently pushes culinary boundaries and explores bold and diverse flavors, remaining a definitive force in contemporary New Orleans culinary culture.

Food & Beverage:           

At the helm is Chef de Cuisine David Slater, who works closely with Lagasse to create an inventive menu utilizing ingredients from Creole classics and elevating them in an exciting direction. The menu extends far beyond Creole to bring diners new American cuisine at its best. Tapping into New Orleans' and the Gulf's rich bounty of fresh seafood and local ingredients, everything in the restaurant is made in-house. Each plate is artfully balanced with an array of flavors, textures, and colors. You'll find Emeril's signature Barbecue Shrimp at each of his establishments, but this is where it was invented. Plump Gulf shrimp are served with petite rosemary biscuits and fresh chives. Crisp Chili Glazed Duck Wings with shaved celery, red grapes and Point Reyes blue crème fraiche offers a new take on an old classic.

For entrées, opt for the rustic Andouille Crusted Drum with creole meuniére or order the Grilled Pork Chop served atop caramelized sweet potatoes with a tamarind glaze and green Chile mole. Perfect for sharing is the Truffle Fried Chicken served on a wooden block accompanied by all the seasonal fixins' - a fan favorite at Emeril's.

For dessert, the Banana Cream Pie is not-to-be-missed, almost synonymous with the New Orleans institution itself; and Wolfgang Puck's pick on the Food Network show, "Best Thing I Ever Ate." Other sweet favorites include the Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie with fudge brownie crust, bacon-peanut brittle and red wine, and the S'mores Ice Cream Sandwich with toasted marshmallows and a Fireball whiskey sauce.

For Lunch, Appetizers range in price from $10-$15; Soups & Salads $7-$12; Entrees $12-$21 and Desserts $6-$10.

For Dinner, Appetizers range in price from $10-$15; Soups & Salads $7-$12; Entrees $24-$60; and Desserts $6-$10.

From an extensive and diversified wine list to playful craft cocktails, Emeril's beverage program serves to quench any palate. The highly-acclaimed and expertly curated wine list is overseen by Sommelier Ray Gumpert. With a selection of 1,800 varietals and 13,000 wines, it is one of the best in the country and has received numerous prestigious accolades.

The cocktails at Emeril's infuse new flavors into the local scene with libations like Cable Car (spiced rum, curacao, lemon juice, simple syrup with a cinnamon sugar rim); Bourbon Buzz (bourbon, honey syrup, muddled lime and lemon); and the Corpse Reviver #2 (gin, triple sec, Lillet Blanc, lemon juice and Herbsaint).
