Celebrity Chef Emeril Lagasse Opens Rodos at Hotel Henri in NYC

By Gary Duff | January 17, 2019 | Food & Drink

Celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse adds another eatery to his restaurant empire with the opening of Rodos, a 112-seat spot that draws its inspiration from Greece, in collaboration with restaurateur Yiannis Chatiris and Eleni Vareli at Hotel Henri.


The Chelsea restaurant will serve a variety of dishes, including lacquered Long Island duck ($36), which is glazed with hazelnut, citrus, and Aleppo, as well as a grilled branzino ($32) topped with kritamos leaves, ladolemono, and capers, and linguine Nero ($26), pasta dressed in Calabrian chili, arugula, almonds, and lobster. Other menu items, such as the Louisiana crawfish stuffed clams ($23), New Orleans style barbecued shrimp ($22), and the crispy duck wings ($17), match Lagasse's Southern style with Mediterranean fare.

Cocktails include Far From the Tree ($15), a sweet drink with Ketel One orange blossom and peach, Aperol liquer, a splash of grapefruit, and lemon juice; the Forbidden Fruit, a libation made with Tanqueray gin, St. George raspberry liqueur, lemon, and honey; and the Kynara ($15), a cocktail of Xicaru mezcal, cynar liqueur, lemon, and honey.

Rodos, named after the Greek island Rhodes, is Lagasse's 12th restaurant and is open every day from 4:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Rodos, 39 W. 24th St., 212-989-8811
