NOLA Restaurant

NOLA is chef/restaurateur Emeril Lagasse’s casual eatery in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter. Open since 1992, the critically-acclaimed restaurant fuses traditional Creole, Acadian and Southern cuisine with global influences. Chef de Cuisine Philip Buccieri collaborates with Chef Emeril to create an innovative menu showcasing rustic Louisiana cooking with local ingredients and some ethnic twists. The three-story restaurant features an open-action kitchen, chef’s food bar, a signature wood-fired brick oven as well as private event space.

NOLA was renovated in 2017 and is now open daily at 11:30 am serving one menu for lunch and dinner. The updated menu offers both new dishes as well as the classics dating back to NOLA’s inception like Emeril’s Barbequed Shrimp, Gumbo and Miss Hay’s Stuffed Chicken Wings. The new enlarged bar area offers a daily happy hour as well as an extensive wine list and both classic and signature cocktails.
