Emeril's Restaurant Review

: Emeril Lagasse doesn't appear in his eponymous restaurant very often, but his staff of talented culinarians is on the job. Huge barbecue shrimp come enrobed in a robustly seasoned brown sauce. Meat lovers will go for the double-cut pork chop with caramelized sweet potatoes. Desserts to consider include a chocolate Grand Marnier soufflé and an upside-down whiskey pecan cake. The wine list is as thick as a Russian novel and well composed, with a fair number of bottles priced below $35. Professional service teams keep things humming at the tables. The food bar affords a panoramic view of the kitchen. Framed like a stage's proscenium arch, it's bordered with back-lit glass cases holding colorful seeds, grains and spices. If there is a downside to Emeril’s, it is the noise level, and the menu is a bit pricey compared to similar local restaurants.
