Emeril's New Orleans Celebrates National Banana Cream Pie Day By Offering Free Slices To Patrons Thursday
NEW ORLEANS – Lunch and dinner guests at Emeril’s New Orleans, 800 Tchoupitoulas St., will get a little lagniappe as part of the restaurant’s special promotion celebrating National Banana Cream Pie Day, March 2 – a free slice of banana cream pie, skillfully prepared by Pastry Chef Jeremy Fogg.
To pay homage to the restaurant’s signature dessert, guests who dine in the main dining room, from 11:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m., and order an entrée will be presented with one free slice of the famous mile-high pie, per table.
In addition, for each slice of banana cream pie presented throughout the day, the Emeril Lagasse Foundation will donate at least one pound of bananas to Liberty’s Kitchen as part of their School Nutrition Program.
