This morning I called Emeril's to make a reservation for one (I'm traveling alone right now) and they recommended that I sit at the Chef's Window...a bar that looks directly into the kitchen so that you can see what's going on in the preparation of food. I jumped at that chance.
Upon my arrival and my perusement of the menu, I settled on their summer special of a Five Course Menu; you have a choice of three items for each course on this tasting menu. Before my five courses began to arrive, I was served a plate of breads and a perfect little appetizer salad. Then the fun started...
|Fresh Angel Hair Pasta|
Louisiana Crawfish, Smoked Mushrooms,
Local Tomatoes, Tarragon, Parmesan
|Yellowfin Tuna--Butter Lettuce Cups|

**Signature Dish of the House**
