Emeril Lagasse heads to New York, home to some of the country's most storied restaurants. He visits Lombardi's Pizza, which has the distinction of being America's original pizzeria. Emeril learns that fresh ingredients and a piping hot coal oven set Lombardi's apart from the imitators, as he samples their famous White Pizza and Clam Pizza. From there Emeril makes his way to Katz's, a world famous deli founded by Russian immigrants back in 1888. Emeril tastes their legendary Corned Beef and Pastrami, then goes behind the deli counter to serve some of New York's most demanding customers. Finally, Emeril travels to the 21 Club, a former 1920s speakeasy that has become a haven for the city's movers and shakers. Emeril helps the Chef prepare their signature Dover Sole, and explores the Prohibition era wine cellar.
