Emeril's New Orleans
Douglas Braselman serves as Chef de Cuisine at Emeril’s New Orleans, Chef Emeril Lagasse’s flagship restaurant located in New Orleans’ Warehouse District.
A New Orleans native, Braselman is no stranger to Emeril’s family of restaurants. In 2011, he joined the team at Emeril’s New Orleans, later moving to become chef de cuisine at Emeril’s Orlando at Universal’s CityWalk, his most recent position and one he held since April 2015.
With more than 16 years of experience in the culinary arts, he’s worked under the guidance of some of the best chefs and restaurateurs in New Orleans, including Chef David Slater, Chef Gregg Collier, Chef James Wong and Roy Barre. These experiences led to opportunities in award-winning restaurants such as Redfish Grill, Ralph’s on the Park, and eventually, Emeril’s restaurants in New Orleans and Orlando.
Braselman brings with him the flavors of his Louisiana heritage, while being hands-on in the kitchen, using only the best quality local and regional ingredients to drive his seasonal menu and daily specials.
