Going to be in NOLA in a few weeks with one of our all time favorite couples. They've never been and are trusting us to show them around and take them to good restaurants and have a few great drinks. No problem!
The one request they did have was dinner at Emeril's. I'm dreading it. Truly. I had a horrible experience at Emeril's NOLA (which I've recounted on this board) and it has turned me off to all things Emeril. But since I love my friends, I will not neglect them of this one request.
So, what I need is for my New Orleans loving hounders to talk me down...or not. I'd like to read about your expereinces at Emeril's....all of them....the good, the bad, and the ugly.
