Emeril's Florida Finds the Perfect Beach Bites in South Walton.

By: Rachelle Lucas


The TV show Emeril's Florida followed chef Emeril Lagasse around South Walton County and showcased some of his favorite restaurants along the beaches there, including my favorite food trucks in Seaside. If you love gulf coast-inspired cuisine and are curious to learn about an unconventional version of shrimp n' grits, be sure to add these restaurants to your vacation itinerary. From an elegant steak house perfect for celebrating a special occasion, to an artisan bakery with the best pizzas around, and even a row of gourmet food trucks -- there's really something for every taste and occasion.
