Lagasse said he sees his new restaurant as “a small step in the revitalization of this important site in the community.”Lagasse already has restaurants in two other Las Vegas Sands properties: Delmonico Steakhouse at The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino and Table 10 at The Palazzo Las Vegas. He also has restaurants in New Orleans; Orlando, Fla.; Miami; and Gulfport, Miss. The restaurants are operated by Emeril's Homebase in New Orleans.
