Emeril’s Las Vegas Restaurants Announce A Tribute To New Orleans’ Historic Delmonico Restaurant At Delmonico Steakhouse


Chef Emeril Lagasse’s Las Vegas chefs are joining forces for a third collaborative dinner in their “Tour de Emeril” series, this time a decidedly lavish affair at Delmonico Steakhouse in the Venetian Hotel & Casino. Dubbed “A Return To Delmonico,” this truly exceptional event on Tuesday, Sept. 8 will see Chef Emeril’s four Las Vegas restaurants and their respective chefs de cuisine revisit and update some of the classic dishes that defined fine dining in New Orleans during the gilded age.

Chefs Ronnie Rainwater (Delmonico Steakhouse), Jean Paul Labadie (Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House), Scott Pajak (Lagasse’s Stadium), and James Richards (Table 10), along with Culinary Director Sean Roe have selected some of the most intriguing dishes from the history of New Orleans’ Delmonico Restaurant, dating to 1895.

“As much as we love the modern dining experience at Delmonico Steakhouse,” said Rainwater, “we thought it would be great to celebrate our legendary namesake and hearken back to an era when dining out was truly an event,” said Rainwater. “We invite all guests to dress for the occasion. All of us certainly will be!”


The elegant evening for ladies and gentlemen alike begins with a canape and cocktail reception at 6 p.m. in the Delmonico lounge. Then, guests will be invited to the private dining room for a formal dinner of tableside presentations at precisely 7 p.m. offering the following courses:
