Hi--I posted this query (below) on this board and got a lot of helpful responses, but then the post was moved to the media board.
Since my query is specifically about the possibility of seeing Emeril at one of his New Orleans restaurants, I am re-posting it here, with the hopes that I am not transgressing any Chow rules!!
Also, there was one poster in particular who was trying to help but now I fear s/he cannot find me, another reason for re-posting. (Note to VodkaWithOlives: I arrive on June 28 and will stay about 5 days.) Thanks all for any help.
Hi-I know this may be a pie-in-the-sky quest but I will be taking my 9 y.o. daughter, a budding cook & foodie and, thanks to the Ratatouille DVD, Emeril fan, to NOLA in late June-early July for one week. (We live in France.) Her one request is to see Emeril. And I mean the MAN and not just the restaurant. Does anyone have any idea whether he still puts in an appearance now and then at his nola places (given his multi-media empire) and/or who I could contact for this special request? I appreciate any advice.
