Emeril's Review

Celebrity-chef Emeril Lagasse's urban-chic flagship restaurant is always jammed, so it's fortunate that the basket-weave-patterned wood ceiling muffles much of the clatter and chatter. The ambitious menu gives equal emphasis to Creole and modern American cooking—try the maple-soy lacquered duck or the barbecue shrimp, which is one one of the darkest, richest versions of that local specialty. Desserts, such as the renowned banana cream pie, verge on the gargantuan. Service is meticulous, and the wine list's depth and range mean that you shouldn't hesitate to ask your server for advice.

    Really loud

    Although the food is great and the service is like watching amazing synchronized swimming, don't think you are going here for any romantic dinner. It is boisterous and loud. It does make it fun, but I just wanted people to know in case you were planning something romantic.
