Miami New Times' Description
Though you won't hear "Bam!" coming from the open kitchen at Emeril's Miami Beach, the celebrity chef has put his stamp on his eponymous New Orleans-style eatery. The food screams the Big Easy via spicy Creole dishes such as barbecue shrimp ($10.50), pan-roasted blue crab cake with Louisiana crawfish coleslaw ($12), gumbo ($9), andouille-crusted red fish with bordelaise potatoes ($34), eight-ounce filet mignon with blue cheese butter ($46), and caramelized sweet potatoes ($6). A can't-miss creation is actually on the dessert menu: Sink your fork into Emeril's luscious banana cream pie ($10), and you'll never order crème brûlée again. Brunch is just as decadent, with a three-course prix fixe menu ($36) offering kicked-up breakfast-style plates such as smoked salmon cheesecake, eggs Benedict with slow-roasted pork, and French toast with chorizo sausage. It's pricey at Emeril's, but you won't leave hungry. It's also a rare dining experience in a town marred by bad service: The waitstaff is attentive, the sommelier knowledgeable, and the atmosphere warm and inviting. And for the times when Mr. Lagasse is in town (mainly during the winter months), request a seat by the open kitchen so you can watch the world's most telegenic chef whip up your meal a few feet away. Maybe then you'll be saying, "Bam!" with him.
Emeril Lagasse actually hails from Fall River, Massachusetts, but he's an honorary Southerner because of his heavy ties to New Orleans, where he's been opening restaurants since 1990. And nobody makes a good homemade pie better than a Southerner. So check out the selection at his eponymous place at the St. Moritz Hotel in Miami Beach, where desserts go for $8 to $10. There's...

Emeril Lagasse actually hails from Fall River, Massachusetts, but he's an honorary Southerner because of his heavy ties to New Orleans, where he's been opening restaurants since 1990. And nobody makes a good homemade pie better than a Southerner. So check out the selection at his eponymous place at the St. Moritz Hotel in Miami Beach, where desserts go for $8 to $10. There's banana cream with caramel sauce and dark chocolate shavings, or mango key lime kicked up a notch with sugared fried plantains, or the classic pecan ... Bam! And other desserts such as caramel-apple cobbler with cinnamon ice cream, or a skillet-baked brownie with chocolate ganache, caramel, and vanilla bean ice cream aren't quintessentially Southern, but they are damn good, especially as a means of closing out a New Orleans lunch, dinner, or Sunday brunch.
Tips from foursquare
Emeril Lagasse brings his classic Creole cuisine, like Andouille Crusted Red Fish and Gumbo to Florida, at Emeril's Miami Beach.
Five-star Creole cuisine is hard to come by even in New Orleans, but Emeril’s newly appointed executive chef Tim Doolittle does well by the tradition at the Loews Miami Beach restaurant.
Our waiter with the handlebar mustache smells real bad.
The food and service is by far one of the best places to go in the world. Try the red fish and BBQ shrimp
Waiter with the handle the handle bar mustache was amazing. Such a friendly server and so accommodating.
