Chef Emeril Lagasse Kicks Off Fall Sports Season at “Lagasse’s Stadium” at The Palazzo

September 25, 2009 by  

Chef Emeril Lagasse today celebrated the grand opening of Lagasse’s Stadium – a sports bar, entertainment venue and restaurant at The Palazzo Resort-Hotel-Casino. Tonight, professional athletes and stars joined Chef Lagasse on the “green carpet” turf before joining fans for the action inside at the ultimate tailgate party to kick off the season at Lagasse’s Stadium.

The menu, inspired by Emeril’s long time love for sports, includes game-day fare and fans favorites – the best tastes from ballparks, stadiums and backyards across the country – re-imagined with Lagasse’s distinctive culinary style.

Working to provide fans with the ultimate in dining and hospitality are Chef de Cuisine Vincent Chiyuto, previously a member of the culinary team at Table 10, Emeril’s sister outpost at The Palazzo, General Manager Marc Zakin, and a team of 90. “I am a huge sports fan, and I love to cook and tailgate with friends,” says Emeril Lagasse. “At Lagasse’s Stadium I’ve included some of my favorite game day dishes, and many of the iconic foods that fans love to eat at sporting events across the country. Our goal was to create a unique and fun dining experience for sports fans- there’s not a bad seat in the house!” Lagasse’s Stadium will serve an all day menu for lunch and dinner, including:

  • Signature dishes that Emeril pioneered at his flagship restaurant: Barbecue Shrimp with Rosemary Flatbread, New Orleans Style Crab Cakes, Creole Boiled Shrimp Cocktail, Sweet BBQ Salmon
  • Game-day fare with Lagasse’s twist: French Dip with shaved Garlic Roasted Prime Rib and Truffle Aioli on New Orleans French Bread, Creole Reuben, Ahi Tuna Melt with Creole Tomato Glaze, BBQ Baby Back Ribs with Jalapeño Cornbread
