Three Sides of Emeril
The chef with the megawatt smile claims a nationwide empire, but his restaurants started in New Orleans. Come taste where it all began.
Certain icons make New Orleans different. Hot jazz on the street corner. Beignets as light as air, paired with coffee that kicks. Bourbon Street in all its rough-hewn glory. And, of course, Emeril Lagasse.
