Emeril's Delmonico Announces New Chef de Cuisine

Anthony Scanio Selected to Lead Restaurant's Culinary Operations

 

NEW ORLEANS (Sept. 18, 2012) - Emeril's Delmonico today announced its new chef de cuisine, Anthony Scanio, to lead the legendary restaurant's kitchen and culinary operations. Scanio was previously Delmonico's executive sous chef, where he began developing new Creole recipes with roots in the restaurant's 117-year history.

"Chef Anthony has demonstrated he has the creative abilities, honed skills and culinary foresight to lead the Delmonico team in continuing its excellence and commitment to New Orleans cuisine," said Chef Emeril Lagasse, the restaurant's owner and executive chef.

Before joining the Emeril's team at Delmonico in 2005, Scanio, a New Orleans native, completed culinary courses at Delgado Community College and spent a year in Italy studying the country's cuisine and staging in Rome. He has previously worked for New Orleans restaurants Café Indo and Herbsaint, where he studied under chefs Donald Link and Stephen Stryjewski.

Following Hurricane Katrina, Scanio moved to Emeril's Orlando before returning to Delmonico as sous chef in 2006. He was promoted to executive sous chef in 2009. Today, he leads the kitchen at Delmonico and oversees all facets of its culinary operations, from sourcing products, to managing the restaurant's in-house dry-aging program for beef, duck and charcuterie, working with local farmers, and crafting ambitious nightly tasting menus for guests at his kitchen table.

Scanio's vision and flavor for Delmonico is expressed through his personal New Orleans heritage and a fresh, clean, ingredient-based approach to cooking. He's returning to the roots of Creole cooking-homey, approachable, fresh and diverse-and including ingredients and techniques that have been long forgotten to reinterpret the dishes for today's tastes, keeping in tradition with Lagasse's signature "New New Orleans" cuisine.

Delmonico is open nightly for dinner, 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. The bar opens nightly at 5 p.m. Guests are encouraged to make reservations by calling (504) 525-4937 or online at http://www.emerilsrestaurants.com/.
