Emeril Lagasse is to restaurants what Baccarat is to crystal. And, like fine crystal, Emeril’s décor and cuisine are elegant, not only to the eye, but also to the palate.

I’ve had the opportunity to dine at Emeril’s restaurants in New Orleans, Orlando, and somewhat frequently in my own backyard on South Beach. Each of them has their own charm and specialty. Emeril’s on South Beach has Caribbean flavor with Lagasse’s flair for taste and delicious temptations.
