Recommendation of Emeril's vs NOLA

  • a
  • 3

I am returning to New Orleans after being away for several years. Would like to eat at one of Emeril's restaurants but do not know which to choose. The menus of Emeril's and NOLA seem similar. What is the difference between the two restaurants and which would you recommend?

  1. I'm a big Emeril fan. I like Emeril's the best. I like the room, the bar, the atmosphere, service and food. NOLA is very nice but I like the feeling at Emeril's. NOLA is a little more compact for me. Emerils is more spacious. The food and service are both outstanding. I also like Delmonico's. It's quiet, the food is good and Bob the piano player is good too.

    1. Emeril's is a little more upscale, nicer surroundings, bigger wine cellar and a bit more expensive. They may have similar menus but both have a few different long term items that people return specifically for. I think food prep and service are similar

      NOLA is casual and has a lot more walk-ins. With the French Quarter "industrial" interior it is also noisier. For eating when in the Quarter I like NOLA and make Emeril's a place for cocktails when in the area or for a special occasion meal
