NEW ORLEANS – Get your passports ready and head over to Meril for its Eat the World dinner series. The restaurant is hosting six dinners to celebrate some of Chef Emeril Lagasse’s favorite places to visit. The next stop is China, Aug. 30.
Diners can expect to see Shrimp Fried Rice, Pork Potstickers, Peking Duck, a Fortune Cookie Ice Cream Cone and more on the menu during their visit to China.
Tickets are $65 per person (exclusive of tax and gratuity), with an optional wine pairing for $20. Reservations are required and can be made by calling (504) 526-3745 or on OpenTable.
The dinners are a nod to the popular Eat the World with Emeril Lagasse series on Amazon that debuted back in 2016. Additional destinations to be highlighted include:
- Italy (Sept. 13)
- Sweden (Sept. 26)
- Cuba (Oct. 11)
- Korea (Oct. 25)
Each dinner will feature a three-course, family-style menu with wine pairings unique to the culture and ingredients from each country. The experience will be further accentuated by authentic music and decorations inspired by each destination.
