Emeril's Delmonico Tonight- need recs



Going there with my gf for her birthday and need recs on what to get, whether its charcuterie, appetizers, or entrees. Leaning towards the jerk spice lamb loin unless y'all have other suggestions. Thanks

That is great and the duck breast over grits is really good.

But to be honest the best entree are the strip and the bone in ribeye. And I'm hard pressed to order steaks but I believe they are the best in the region.

They have a little pasta side with roasted tomatos that is really good.

The charcuterie we have ordered was a sample of all. If I picked just one it would be the pate or a turene.

It's a great place. Really good wine and they know wine well. Get a steak and a good Cab Franc and enjoy the good life.

Agree on the meat quality, it's really top notch. The charcuterie was all solid too. Also has some of the best service in town. Haven't been since they changed the chef de cuisine though I can't imagine the place has slipped any.

Definitely a great way to go.

If you do the lamb entree get the NY strip carpaccio as an app.

I've had the duck, strip, & bone in ribeye, and I agree that all three are excellent. I honestly can't think of a place I've had better food. Delmonico is one of my all time favorite restaurants, anywhere.

I had the filet with crabmeat and mushrooms when I went there with the gf and kids a few years ago.

The duck breast is great.

They used to have an bacon wrapped oyster w/brie appetizer that was outstanding.

The dry aged strip or ribeye is hard to beat. I think the music is too damn loud but they said it was as low as it could go.

I think anything orderd there will taste great.

Bone in ribeye is very good. I really like that place. Waitstaff was very friendly and personable.

One of my favorite places in town. The steak is incredible. The bar is very underrated - good place to hang out.
