Emeril's Delmonico was one of our 2012 Top 10 Steakhouses in the U.S.
Emeril's Delmonico Restaurant Review: Creole classics are the theme at Delmonico, but don’t be surprised by a good bit of the modern-day snap for which proprietor Emeril Lagasse is known. Chef Anthony Scanio oversees the kitchen and the menus, and keeps the place adventurous. Standouts on the snacks section of the menu include the crab croquettes with mirliton slaw, cilantro and sweet pepper marmalade. Entrées might range from jerk spiced Colorado lamb loin to Creole smothered chicken breast with apple smoked bacon, green beans, wild rice and mushroom pilaf. Steak options include filet mignon and in-house, dry-aged New York strip. For dessert, there’s caramel croissant bread pudding with banana ice cream. Lagasse poured more than a few million dollars into transforming this primly elegant, hundred-year-old Creole restaurant into a fantasy of glitz and plush as befits his showman’s legacy. Happy hour (Monday-Friday 5 p.m.-7 p.m.) presents a creative bar menu and specially priced cocktails. New Orleans is a casual town, but you can get dressed up for Delmonico, and plan to linger.
