Chef Emeril Lagasse makes his way down to South Florida to explore three original establishments in Miami. He sits down at Joe's Stone Crab in South Beach and learns the history behind the restaurant's signature crustacean dish. He stops by the kitchen to see how Joe's makes its famed Key Lime Pie and discovers why the place was a favorite of G-Men and mobsters alike. Emeril also travels to northwest Miami to taste a true Cuban original, Casa Larios. Find out why a dish translated into English as "fried cow" actually makes Miamians' mouths water. Then Emeril pulls up a stool at the bar that received the very first liquor license in the city -- Tobacco Road. Emeril is in food heaven as he samples ribs and chicken that have been in the Road's own smoker for hours. In fact, he's so happy he sits in on the drums with a local blues band playing at Tobacco Road.
