Three South Florida restaurants will be featured on next week’s new episode of Emeril’s Florida, a Cooking Channel show hosted by Emeril Lagasse.
At Red Fish, managing partner Chris Klaic and executive chef Greg True give Lagasse an overview of their restaurant, housed in an early-1900s coral building next to a lagoon. True makes a Caribbean bouillabaisse with mussels, shrimp, scallops, coconut milk, lobster stock and rum.
Now in its second season, Emeril’s Florida also showcased Miami-area restaurants during its first season. And it appears poised to do so again: The Pubbelly gang posted pictures of Lagasse filming the show at their Miami Beach flagship restaurant this week, and the man himself posted a shot of tomatoes from Teena’s Pride in south Miami-Dade County.
Lagasse operated an Emeril’s restaurant in Miami Beach from 2003 through 2011. Emeril’s Florida is sponsored in part by the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association, a trade group that lobbies for Florida’s $76 billion hospitality industry.
