FriendsEAT: Tell us a little something about Delmonico Steakhouse. What makes it special?

Chef Ronnie Rainwater: Delmonico Steakhouse is Chef Emeril Lagasse’s take on the grand American steakhouse. The restaurant brings back a time when lunch was an event, cocktail hour was not to be missed and dinner with friends was a celebration. At Delmonico Steakhouse, we remember. Located in The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino, Delmonico Steakhouse takes its name from the legendary, century-old New Orleans institution, Delmonico Restaurant and Bar
