Guests may sample tastes of episode’s winning dish
NEW ORLEANS (Jan. 15, 2014) - Fans of “Top Chef: New Orleans” can go inside the Jan. 22 episode at a watch party from 8-10 p.m. in the bar area at Emeril’s Restaurant, the setting for the final New Orleans episode. Guests at the viewing party, which is open to the public, will be treated to a taste of the episode’s winning dish after it is revealed.
Emeril’s team will also release a special “Top Chef”-inspired NOLA Quickfire cocktail ($9), a whiskey cocktail made with Sazerac rye whiskey, triple sec, Peychaud’s, orange bitters, and fresh lemon and grapefruit juice. The night of the party, $1 from sales of the specialty cocktail will be donated to Café Reconcile, a local Emeril Lagasse Foundation (ELF) beneficiary. ELF will also match the donation from the evening. Guests may order from Emeril’s full dinner menu during the event, along with its full cocktail and wine list.
