Emeril’s Coastal Italian Opens in Grand Boulevard

Emeril Lagasse

One thing is certain, whether you live along the Emerald Coast, are just visiting or looking to purchase a home, there is no denying the incredible culinary offering in South Walton and Destin, Florida. From Celebrity Chef Tim Creehan to Chef and Author Jim Shirley to the many, many other talented chefs that call South Walton and Destin home, the result is an abundance of award-winning restaurants sprinkled along our stretch of beaches. And we’re excited to announce that none other than award-winning restaurateur, cookbook author and television star, Chef Emeril Lagasse will add another level to our culinary offering.

Chef Lagasse is not only an active member of our community and calls the Gulf Coast his home, but will now be our newest restaurateur with the opening of Emeril’s Coastal Italian Restaurant in Grand Boulevard at Sandestin later this spring. Chef Lagasse’s new restaurant will offer a combination of modern Italian cuisines with local fresh Gulf seafood. 

Chef Lagasse takes a hands-on approach with his restaurants and he personally created the new restaurant concept and development of the menu. He and his restaurant team tested and developed each menu item, including researching local purveyors and experimenting with local ingredients. Guests will find a wide variety of dishes that expand beyond a traditional Italian restaurant.

Opening a restaurant in Miramar beach has been of interest to Chef Lagasse for some time. He is an avid fisherman and has been fishing in the Gulf for years. He hopes to make Emeril's Coastal Italian something that is elevated beyond the ordinary and a complimentary fit to the many superb establishments located in Grand Boulevard Town Center. Lagasse’s newest restaurant joins the collection of premium restaurants based in Grand Boulevard, including Flemings Prime Steaks & Seafood, Tommy Bahama and PF Chang’s, among others. Emeril’s Coastal Italian restaurant is located at 435 Grand Boulevard, Suite 104, next door to the Grand Boulevard 10 Cinemas, and will soon be the new hot spot for dinner and movie.
