Viva la bam! Emeril’s Table 10 lightens its menu up
A daily chalkboard announces where the produce comes from: Roe gets his carrots from Gilcrease Orchard north of town, and the regular menu features tomatoes and cucumbers from Pahrump. None of this would mean anything alongside a steak, gravy and grits menu, but Emeril’s Table 10 2.0 has a thing for salads and other light fare that would have gotten him laughed out of New Orleans 15 years ago. In place of butter-roasted shrimp on mashed potatoes with cheese in a béchamel cream sauce, here you should start with house made grissini (bread sticks) wrapped with paper thin slices of La Quercia hog prosciutto. Then get the radishes. Spread them with butter and sea salt, take a bite, and discover an odd but delightful, bitter-rich match in your mouth. Those needing an artery-hardening fix will have no complaints with the roasted marrow bones, and little-fish fans will find themselves fawning over the Great Lakes fried smelts. The small snack assortment adds up to one of the tastiest and more interesting in town.
Also at the Palazzo, Emeril Lagasse’s Table 10 has just released its spring cocktail menu of 13 new drinks created by mixologist Max Solano, including the new signature cocktail, Hang “10,” which features Smirnoff Strawberry vodka, strawberry marmalade, POM pomegranate juice, fresh lime juice and brut sparkling wine for $15. Three award-winning cocktails also make their debuts, including the Genevrier Verte, South Beach Sling and Eau de Perfection.
