Emeril's Delmonico Restaurant Review

: Creole classics rule the menu at Emeril’s 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 all, and keeps the place adventurous. Appetizer standouts include the sweet basil gnocchi filled with Italian sausage, artichoke, pecorino, lemon, oregano and breadcrumbs. Entrées might range from grilled lamb loin with collard greens and yams to a traditional chicken Clemenceau with ham, portobello mushrooms, sugar snap peas and béarnaise sauce. Steak options include a bone-in rib-eye and in-house dry-aged New York strip. For dessert, the must-have choice is Emeril’s chocolate salted caramel Doberge cake with brown butter crumble. Doberge cake is a New Orleans original created by a local baker who adapted it from Hungarian Dobos cake. The wine list is complex and takes time to peruse, typical of Lagasse’s fine dining restaurants. Happy hour (Monday-Friday 5 p.m.-7 p.m.) presents a creative bar menu and specially priced cocktails. 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. New Orleans is a casual town, but you can get dressed up for Delmonico, and plan to linger.
