“This recipe was posted in answer to a message board request. It was taken from the Emeril Lagasse recipe web site (http://www.emerils.com/recipe/167/delmonico-potatoes). Feb 25, 2011 - An Update - Re: Micks' posting: First: Thank you for posting the recipe for "Emeril's Essence/Emeril's Creole Seasoning" :-) Second: No one is claiming this is the recipe for the potatoes served at the "Original (since 1837) Delmonico's Restaurant" in New York City. A restaurant that I have personally had the pleasure of eating in many times (I was born/raised in NYC). I have had the "Classic Delmonico Potatoes" there on many occasions. The potatoes served at the "Original Delmonico's Steakhouse" in NYC are different from the ones that are served at Emeril's restaurant ("Emeril's Delmonico Steakhouse" in New Orleans, La.) Again, I have personally eaten the "Delmonico Potatoes" at Emeril's restaurant when I was in New Orleans. The recipe that is posted is the same as the recipe he uses in HIS restaurant. I hope this clarifies any confusion. :-)”
