Chef Emeril Lagasse just keeps going and going. He held " The Ultimate Tailgate Party" for a star studded invite only event at his latest project Lagassee's Stadium in the Palazzo Resort in Las Vegas .
Lagasse’s Stadium combines Emeril Lagasse's signature dishes with over 100 HD TVs including a 9ft x 16ft main TV, luxury boxes, plush stadium-style seating, billiard tables, and outdoor patio over looking the Las Vegas Strip.
In addition to watching your favorite team on the large screens , sports betting stations, black jack and craps tables, as well as video poker machines, billiard tables and video arcade games will keep you entertained even if your team is loosing.
“As a long-time season ticket holder, on big game days you’ll find me tailgating with friends and supporting my favorite teams,” says Emeril Lagasse. “I’m happy to team up again with our friends at The Palazzo to create the ultimate sports establishment. At Stadium, we’ll be serving serious food for serious fans.”
Lagasee's dishes are a combination of traditional stadium-style food and the Southern dishes he is known for. The menu is varied and features popular and upscale items offering guests the option to choose their meal according to taste and budget.
“If you want to take a break from this and have a little white tablecloth experience, you can go in the dugout and have anything from a great barbequed salmon to a great steak and great wine,” he said.
We walked past the bar and into the themed VIP viewing rooms with a feeling of awe. This is not your normal "sports book" This is a sports venue its its own right.
Emeril is known to be very flamboyant and needs no introduction. Many consider him to be America's most recognized Chef. With his own cheerleaders and of course a New Orleans band. Emeril really knows how to make an entrance and he made a big one at the Grand Opening of Lagasse's Stadium.
