Emeril's Restaurant Review:

About the restaurant and décor: Chef Emeril Lagasse’s flagship fine dining establishment remains one of New Orleans' authentic culinary gems. Lagasse doesn't appear in his eponymous restaurant very often, but his staff of talented culinarians is on the job. 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.

About the food & drinks: Huge barbecued shrimp come enrobed in a robustly seasoned brown sauce. Meat lovers will go for the roasted pork loin with caramelized sweet potatoes. Chef's tasting and vegetarian menus are also available. Desserts to consider include a chocolate Grand Marnier soufflé and banana cream pie. The wine list is as thick as a Russian novel and equally well composed. Professional service teams keep things humming at the tables.
