Airing next week, Emeril’s Florida will travel to the Space Coast and visit three restaurants – the Cocoa Villiage Cafe Margaux,” “The Fat Snook located in Cocoa Beach and finally Cafe Coconut Cove in Melbourne.

Too bad Emeril won’t be dropping by the Kissimmee dinner show at Capone’s. Mama Capone could give him a tour of the kitchen where all of the fresh pasta and homemade dishes are prepared each night! The wise guys could really show him an entertaining show which runs every night for a little over two hours.

These stay-at-home dinner shows last 30 minutes and air on the Cooking Channel and the Food Network. Not a bad way to visit the state’s top restaurants, resorts and events. After all, Emeril Lagasse can be a pretty good personal travel guide.

However, after watching the show on television, you might be a little hungry. After all, it’s hard to see all of that delicious food and not be able to eat any of it! Bring your appetite to Capone’s Dinner & Show. The buffet will fill you up and the show will keep you entertained. You will have to leave your home, but your travels will be worth it!
