During my annual trip to New Orleans, I always try to get at least one great finer dining experience. I say “finer” dining because these days you can get fine dining quality in a more casual setting. That being said, the 2014 NOLA trip took me to another Emeril Lagasse restaurant.
NOLA is steps from the French Quarter. It is clear that the service at Emeril’s restaurants is consistently impeccable. They are very attentive, and of course the food stands alone.
