South Florida restaurants to star in Emeril’s TV show

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.

Red Fish Grill in Matheson Hammock Park just south of Coral Gables, JB’s on the Beach in Deerfield Beach and Blue Moon Fish Co. in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea prepare seafood for the celebrity chef in “Some South Florida Beach & Waterfront Favorites,” which airs Sunday at 2:30 p.m., Monday at 9:30 a.m. and Thursday at 11:30 a.m.

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.
