Emeril's. Not impressed.

Gael and I went to Emeril's tonight for Miami Spice.

1) My sauvignon blanc I ordered at the bar was not good. Flat, uncitrusy.
2) The service was fine.
3) The food was not.
4) Duck hash. (Eh.)
5) Steak with duxelles and puff pastry - H.O.R.R.I.B.L.E. The quote of the night related to my steak was as follows: Gael: "Ew. Send that back. That's nothing but nerves and gristle."
6) Berry bread pudding with vanilla creme Anglaise: Okay.
7) Quote of the evening:

Me: Hey -- Did our duck hash come in a circle? (While looking at our neighbor's duck hash)
Gael: Yeah. It did until you messed it up made a mess of it.

Wait... that's an awesome quote. They should put that on your gravestone.

Laughing ensued. You had to be there.

8) Annoying point of the evening: Watching my table-neighbor order the same AWFUL steak I ate, after I had EXPLICITLY warned him not to eat it. We had to leave right as he was served the steak, so I didn't have to watch him cut into it and swoon over his piece, because I would have lost my shit.

Verdict: Emeril's: Not going back. The food was... not... great.

I agree. Went there a few years ago and thought it was just ok. But I feel the same way about the Emeril's in New Orleans. NOLA is 10 times better. Emeril should open one here!
