Emeril's located in the studio walk section of the MGM Grand. Emeril’s is more of a casual dining scene, serving both lunch and dinner. Emerils authentic New Orleans Creole flavors are shown throughout the menu and restaurant itself.

Yellowtail Sashimi
Watercress, Cucumber & Carrots, Yuzu Vinaigrette
Tamari Glaze and Tobiko Caviar

Yellowtail was fresh and cold. I liked the touch of fennel in the salad added a nice texture and flavor to the dish.

Fall River Clam Chowder

Bland and boring. Definitely not the best clam chowder I’ve had.

Fried Crawfish Fritters
Creole Mustard Coleslaw & Mirliton Tartar Sauce

These were a huge let down. They were so dense and filling I couldn’t eat more than one and even that was a struggle. There was no flavor of crawfish at all. Stay away.

Seafood Pan Roast
Two Fish Medallions and Wild American Shrimp Pan Seared and Served
on a Seafood Jambalaya with Creole Essence Spiked Butter Sauce and
Toasted French Bread

This really brought out all the Creole flavors that I was looking for. All of the fish were cooked well and the sauce was rich and flavorful. Really authentic dish.

Open Faced Philly Cheese Steak
9 ounce Prime Rib eye Grilled to Your Liking and Served on Top of
Buttered Texas Toast and Smothered with Sautéed Bell Peppers, Onions,
Wild Mushrooms and Gruyere Cheese Mornay

I thought this was good. It had all the flavors of a Philly steak but I’m not a fan of Texas toast, I find it to be way too thick and difficult to eat especially in this dish.

Although the appetizers weren’t that great, I still liked the authenticity of some of the entrees. I’d give it another shot for lunch.
