Bam! Big oak doors open into a vault-ceilinged space. Designed by celebrity TV chef Emeril Lagasse, the cuts are ready for prime time and the influences are Creole, as seen in the grilled pork chops with bourbon smashed potatoes. Desserts seem endless, from country peach pie with buttermilk ice to apple-and-cheddar cheese bread pudding and beyond. Reservations recommended.
