On tonight’s episode of The Originals, Emeril takes a quick vacay in Miami. He’s not in search of the hottest new restaurants, but the classic spots that have served up quality food for decades. His first stop is the legendary Joe’s Stone Crab in South Beach, where the meaty crab claws have been the thing to order (and wait in line for) since 1913. Emeril learns that the Key lime pie is also not to be overlooked at this institution.
Also on the menu for Emeril’s visit: authentic Cuban food at Casa Larios and long-smoked ribs and chicken at the famed Tobacco Road, Miami’s oldest bar. Emeril has such a great time in this sunny paradise that you might even catch him jumping in to play the drums with a local blues band.
Join Emeril’s Miami vacation on The Originals With Emeril tonight at 10:30pm/9:30c.

These are the restaurants that have left an indelible mark on the country’s culinary landscape. They’ve shaped public appetite, and are famous for having not only served, but created many popular drinks and dishes the country enjoys. Every city has its share of cherished institutions that have stood the test of time. Every city has its originals.
