Interested in something a little different from the typical Miami Beach fare? Check out Emeril’s Miami Beach for a blend of Louisiana’s famed Creole cooking combined with the vibrant rhythms and flavors of South Florida. The restaurant can be found in the Historic St. Moritz Hotel building at the fabulous Lowes Miami Beach Hotel. The location offers a relaxed style and beautiful beachfront views. You definitely want to check out the outdoor terrace overlooking the ocean. It is a great place to relax and enjoy a drink. In fact, every Sunday the terrace plays host to a very special New Orleans style Sunday brunch. Sip signature cocktails like a Ramos Gin Fizz or a Sazerac while greeting the rising tropical sun. Emeril’s Miami Beach offers special Creole brunch dishes as well such as Grand Marnier Citrus French Toast and Sauteed Asparagus with Lump Crab Hollandaise. The brunch is amazing, but lunch and dinner are kicked up even one more notch. Inside, the wine room offers a beautiful tray ceiling with cozy ambient lighting and traditional styling. The dining room evokes a more modern design aspect while maintaining a cozy feel. The exclusive food bar offers up a front row seat to all the action in the kitchen.
The restaurant’s menus, designed by celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse, are nothing short of fantastic. The lunch menu features Creole cuisine standards such as the Gulf Shrimp Po’ Boy, and the New Orleans Style Gumbo. However, for dinner Emeril surely kicks it up a notch with his fusion of the best New Orleans cuisine with Latin-influenced South Florida flair. It features starters like Maine Lobster Gnocchi and Flash Fried Creole Marinated Calamari. Entrees like the amazing Sugar Cane Skewered Jumbo Sea Scallops with baby watercress, Key Lime marinated red onions and grilled pineapple relish, and the Andouille Crusted Redfish with fingerling potato-Crimini mushroom hash and Creole MeuniÃ¨re sauce are delectable. In addition to the dinner menu, the restaurant and Chef de Cusine Brandon Benack offer a nightly tasting menu with optional wine pairings. And, of course, the desserts are just as amazing and even more decadent. Three different variations on a New Orleans style bread pudding are offered and the famous Emeril’s Banana Cream Pie is a best seller. Emeril’s Miami Beach brings the best of New Orleans fusion cuisine to South Florida.
