Emeril’s Bistro 1396 will take center stage in Mardi Gras’ French Quarter, one of the ship’s six themed zones where guests will find fun, memorable ways to create their own personalized vacations. The French Quarter will capture the festive spirit of Louisiana with food, cocktails and, of course, live jazz.

Emeril’s Bistro 1396 will showcase the chef’s signature dishes that earned him the reputation as one of NOLA’s most acclaimed and respected chefs! Get your cruise vacation taste buds ready as his menu will include: Oyster and Cochon de lait po-boys, Muffaletta sandwiches, Emeril’s signature Barbecue shrimp, fresh seafood ceviche, roasted duck & Andouille sausage gumbo, jambalaya, and complements such as Creole potato salad with diced scallions, and red beans and “jazz-man” rice.  Breakfast offerings will feature shrimp and grits and a shrimp Creole omelet. The New Orleans classic Bananas Foster and lemon ice box pie will be available for dessert.
