My most memorable dining experience surprisingly happened on a regular midweek evening. I was packed and ready for my month trip, my flight was scheduled early in the morning and I knew I had some time on my hands. I wanted to spend it with my best friend before I left, and with that great idea in mind I headed to her place of work, Emeril’s Restaurant. I had never dined there before due to the pricy tag that every fine dining restaurant carries, but that day I decided to start my vacation early and splurge myself. I’m really glad I did! Everyone should experience a fine dining atmosphere at least once in their lifetime because those exceptional memories are priceless.

As I arrived, a sign with "complementary valet parking" on it already set the tone for a pleasant surprise. I made my way to the main entrance enjoying a light breeze that brought a sweet floral smell. Immediately a friendly hostess approached me asking if I had a reservation tonight. I let her know I was here to visit one of the employees, my best friend Julia. While she was calling for her, I couldn’t help but stare at the luxury ambiance of that place, I felt like I walked into a palace. Extremely high ceilings decorated with bright color chandeliers contributed well to unique natural light coming through mosaic color glass windows creating a beautiful atmosphere and first impression. Walking through the dinning room with my friend, I saw towering shelves at the bar filled with exclusive wines and spirits, while across from it featured serene lily pond that runs in a center of the restaurant. Wet walls of that pond create mini waterfalls for a romantic scenery at the booths right next to it. After all this I decided to explore another pearl of this restaurant, the Chef's food bar! Located right in front of the kitchen, where all the action takes place it couldn’t be a better choice for me.

Seeing that amazing South Pacific ambiance with contemporary design had me more than excited to try...
