Emeril’s Las Vegas Chefs Assemble An Epic Throwback Dinner Event


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:

New Location Opens Inside Venetian Hotel Casino

New Lobster ME at Grand Canal Shoppes Offers Lobster For Everyone 

Lobster ME, a Las Vegas born brand, offering mouth-watering Maine lobster-inspired menu items has opened its newest location inside the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian Hotel Casino.

The new flagship location at 3355 S. Las Vegas Boulevard is near the Grand Canal Shoppes’ Food Court and features a combination of table and bar seating as well to-go orders.

Lobster ME offers a wide selection of lobster fare and a creative drink menu. The restaurant features a variety of lobster rolls, each includes the meat of a one pound lobster, including its Original Maine Style roll with chilled lobster meat, a touch of mayo and subtle spices and the Connecticut Roll featuring warm lobster meat tossed in melted butter.  All Lobster ME lobster rolls are strictly made to order and served in a split-top roll which is grilled to perfection.  

Guests will find plenty of ways to expand their appreciation of lobster with some non-traditional favorites including lobster tacos, lobster mac and cheese and lobster grilled cheese. The new Claw Bar allows diners to quickly add fresh cooked and chilled lobster claws or a ready made shrimp cocktail to their order. 

Drinks include the Lobster Mary, made with spicy tomato juice, horseradish, Jameson’s Irish Whiskey and served with a lobster claw.  Additionally, for those 21 years of age or older there is a full line of cocktails including Wicked Lemonade, Blueberry Margarita, Casco Bay Breeze and The Shandy.

“We’re so happy to be adding a new location inside the Venetian and to be offering our World Famous Lobster Rolls and an expanded bar menu,” said Marisa Endy-Vanchieri, Marketing and Community Relations. 

In addition to lobster rolls and other creative lobster-infused items, diners will find breakfast selections such as lobster and waffles, lobster scramble, New England style French toast and the Lobster ME muffin served until 11 a.m. daily.  Anytime menu items include lobster and chips, chilled Maine lobster salad, lobster bisque and the “lobsicle”, a fried lobster tail served on a stick and featured on History Channel’s All You Can Eat.  

For those seeking non-lobster choices, Lobster ME also offers cod fish and chips, fish or shrimp tacos, hot dogs, clam chowder and a special menu for kids.  

An original concept of the Lev Restaurant Group, Lobster ME also has a location inside the Miracle Mile Shops at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino and a Lobster ME food truck which brings lobster rolls to guests around the Las Vegas Valley.  Lev Restaurant Group is also looking at additional growth opportunities for Lobster ME across the country.
