Harrah’s New Orleans casino is now Caesars and will be adding a new restaurant. Emeril Lagasse will open his new casino restaurant at the casino on Canal Street in late 2023. The French-inspired restaurant will be named Brasserie and will be the first restaurant where all ages are welcome. Another first will be the outdoor dining area and a patio out front. The main entrance to Brasserie will face Canal Street and have a separate entrance from the casino.
“As my first French-influenced concept, I had so much fun creating this menu and going back to my roots to pay homage to some of my own mentors,” Lagasse said.
Before coming to New Orleans Chef Emeril was trained under chefs in Parish, France. His training from his early days will be seen through the food served at Brasserie. Dishes will include steak au poivre, onion soup, Alsatian tarte flambee, and cafe au lait creme brulee. He describes it as “a modern take on the merger of classical French influence with the flavors and spirit of New Orleans.”
The restaurant will seat over 200 which will include 29 seats at the bar area. There will be a mix of high and low seating and classic brasserie banquettes throughout. There will be two private dining rooms and one of the private dining rooms will have a view into the kitchen.a
“We’re creating an entirely new experience at Caesars New Orleans, elevating our offerings with exciting dining, gaming and entertainment options, and Emeril will help add that little bit of local spice that we need to our premier destination,” said Samir Mowad, general manager of Harrah’s New Orleans, in a statement.
