Rustic Italian-inspired fare – Emeril Lagasse serves up his signature take on the familiar Italian staples that he knows and loves. The menu features antipasti, cured meats and artisanal cheeses, soups and salads, fresh made pastas available in half- and full-sized portions, wood-burning oven pizzas, fish, meat and vegetarian plates utilizing seasonal ingredients. Not to be missed: gelato, ice creams, cakes and other house made confections created from scratch by Emeril's dedicated pastry chef.<br><br>Emeril's Italian Table offers a comfortable spot for everyone, from a snack at the bar with salumi and wine, or a corner table for a fun family-style meal with pizza, pasta, main courses and dessert. Emeril's antipasto bar anchors the restaurant, turning out creative Italian appetizers, salumi and regional cheeses. A wood-burning oven is used to craft exceptional pizzas, made and fired to order.

"This was everything that an expensive meal shouldn't be. Despite being on their list didn't have first choice beer, white wine or red wine! Service was indifferent. Room was blah. Food was edible with the exception of dessert which, as compared to the menu description, was unrecognizable.
Overall experience was so bad that I'm going to take the time to write Emeril and share how this restaurant is diminishing his brand.

Amada is not a typical, trendy tapas restaurant. It is something else entirely. Amada serves authentic Spanish tapas based on the earthy Mediterranean flavors that have long been the passion and expertise of founder and executive chef, Jose Garces - but Chef Garces goes beyond tradition, interpreting centuries-old tapas recipes.<br /><br />Specialties of the House<br />Spanish Octopus, Garlic Shrimp,Tortilla Española, Lobster Paella, Whole Roasted Suckling Pig (must be ordered 72 hours in advance, excluding Sundays), Seasonal Sangrías<br /><br />Private Parties: Amada welcomes groups of all sizes. Festive settings, service and menus are perfect for intimate dinners with friends, special occasions and holidays, corporate meetings and staff parties. Events can be booked throughout the restaurant and in our private dining rooms seven days a week. For parties of 12 or more, please call our private events team at 267-284-7979 or email events@garcesgroup.com<br />

"Solid food even after all these years but perhaps the LOUDEST restaurant I've ever eaten in. If you need to talk to one or more of your companions go elsewhere. Otherwise bring a pad and a pen."
