Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House Celebrates 20th Anniversary
Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House will commemorate the 20th anniversary of its opening at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino with menu specials, surprise treats, and more in the month of November and beyond.
For one week Nov. 16 – 22, the restaurant will offer a special “Essential Emeril” anniversary menu, highlighting some of the restaurant’s most beloved dishes throughout the years. Selections will include the smoked salmon cheesecake, Alabama blue crabmeat stuffed gulf shrimp, pepper seared ahi tuna and the beloved mile high icebox chocolate peanut butter pie for $70 per person (tax, gratuity, wine pairings additional).
On Friday, Nov. 20, all diners will also share a complimentary champagne toast and taste of the classic banana cream pie. Several of the anniversary menu items will be available a la carte beginning on Nov. 16and continuing through Dec. 13.
Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House has also designed a special commemorative logo which will appear on menus throughout the 20th year, as well as on the lapels of all service staff.
Says Chef Emeril Lagasse, “Twenty years ago, I opened Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House with the idea of bringing the flavors of New Orleans and the bounty of Gulf Coast seafood to Las Vegas. I’m grateful to say that with the ongoing support of our customers, the Las Vegas community and the MGM Grand, we continue to bring this experience to them.” Lagasse adds, “To this day, I’m proud to see the way that Las Vegas has shared in my love for this “New New Orleans Cuisine.”
Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House remains the second oldest celebrity chef restaurant in continuous operation on the Las Vegas Strip, preceded only by Wolfgang Puck’s Spago. Named in tribute to the original New Orleans Fish House, a longtime supplier to Emeril’s restaurants, Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House has won Wine Spectator’s “Best of Award of Excellence” every year consecutively since 1996, featuring more than 1,300 wines in inventory. Chef de Cuisine Heath Cicerelli has been part of the kitchen team for 12 out of 20 years.
The anniversary celebrations will augment Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House’s current popular offerings, including the Strip’s best daily selection of fresh oysters with five to seven varieties daily, a rotating weekly chef’s menu with original inspirations from the kitchen, a market menu focusing on catches of the day, the personalized Kitchen Table experience, and the new Coravin wine program offering rare cult wines by the glass.
