We went Sunday, and I was very pleased. I don't care about bread, but if that is your thing, you might get peeved. Not sure what the issue is with the portions as they seemed adequate to me. We split the calamari small plate for an appetizer, and it was plenty for two. It was delicious. We both tried to order a Caesar salad, the waiter simply suggested we split one, and that was plenty salad for us both. It was a great salad, by the way, with anchovy. For main course we had grouper special and chicken parmesan and both were fantastic. I am attempting to post a pic of the grouper. It came with a wonderful house made jam and roasted brussel sprouts. There is a good wine list, we had sparkling rose before eating and had the server match a glass of wine to go with meal. Then we split tiramisu for dessert, which was unbelievably good. I left really full and happy. Pricing is similar to, if not a little less than Café 30A. We will be back!

In Italy, the do not serve bread with pasta - that's an American thing.

I spent a summer in Italy and was served fresh baked Italian style bread with every meal starting with breakfast. That's how you know what region you're in by the texture of the crust. Seems like it turned into a rock the further south we went. But always wonderful. I could live on pasta, bread and wine.

It's priced a little less than Cafe 30A because Emeril's doesn't have tablecloths and serves their tiramisu in a shot glass.
I'm glad you enjoyed it.

It was in a glass but come on it was not a shot glass. :dunno: If the dessert was glopped out onto a plate I bet it would be a similar quantity as what one would find with the more traditional block rendition. I will gladly pay less and forego a tablecloth (does 30A use them? I honestly don't recall).

Joho has me confused based on his post. Do you like Emerils, not like Emerils, work there or what?

My martini was thimble-sized too. Another knock. Yeah, they need to re-think a lot, starting with portions and bread service.

I suggest everyone try it, you be the judge. I think with the competition in this area of fine restaurants there's room for improvement. To answer your question, no I don't work there, it is only an opinion of my dining experience.
