Located on the famed St. Charles Avenue streetcar line, Delmonico, the legendary, 117-year-old institution, is an icon in the restaurant industry and has been a cornerstone of traditional Creole dining since 1895. Reopened by Emeril Lagasse in 1998 after an extensive historic renovation, Delmonico continues today serving a modern style of
Louisiana’s Creole cuisine with Emeril’s warm style of service in a grand setting. Under Emeril and Chef Anthony Scanio’s leadership, Delmonico
has returned to the roots of Creole cooking—homey, approachable, fresh and diverse—by including ingredients and techniques that have been long forgotten to reinterpret the dishes for today’s tastes.
- The Restaurant Writes...
Located on the famed St. Charles street car line in the lower Garden District, Emeril’s Delmonico has been a New Orleans tradition since 1895. Today, Chef de Cuisine Anthony Scanio continues Chef Emeril Lagasse’s signature style of “New New Orleans” cuisine, while adding influences from the diverse cultures that helped shape the Creole tradition. On the menu, it’s not uncommon to find ingredients from the Caribbean islands, such as crisp plantains, along side more classic Creole dishes to create a wholly unique dining experience. You’ll find New Orleans originals, such as oysters Bienville and fresh fish meuniere, as well as new favorites—a chorizo-stuff pork loin, dry-aged duck breast, and of course, sumptuous, dry-aged steaks. Delmonico features nightly starters, soups, entrée, and dessert specials and a seasonally changing menu based on local and regionally available meats and produce.
