South Florida food is getting some national exposure.

 

Casa D'Angelo (1201 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale, 954-564-1234, Casa-D-Angelo.com) is featured on Cooking Channel’s “Emeril's Florida” in a Sunday, Jan. 11 episode titled “Big Night Out.” The episode, airing at 2:30 p.m., has host Emeril Lagasse visiting three Florida restaurants that he considers perfect for an exceptional night out. The episode features chef and owner Angelo Elia and Lagasse preparing branzino and pappardelle with porcini mushrooms.

 

PB Catch (251 Sunrise Ave., Palm Beach, 561-655-5558, PBCatch.com) is included in USA Today’s year-end best food and beverage trends of 2014. Joining artisan coffee roasters and the rise of gluten-free restaurant offerings is PB’s seacuterieÖ. This play on the traditional pork and beef components of charcuteries features seafood. Chef Aaron Black’sÖ seacuterie offerings include salmon pastrami, smoked trout and scallops, octopus terrine and fish dips. PB Catch was also recently featured on National Geographic’s “Fish Tank Kings,” in which owner Thierry Beaud worked with Fort Lauderdale’s Living Color Aquariums to create a glow-in-the-dark feature.

 

Shake Shack (Boca Raton, Miami Beach, Coral Gables, ShakeShack.com) is getting ready for its IPO and finally adding the ShackMeister Burger on the menu at more than 30Ö of its U.S. locations. The ShackMeister was the judges’ favorite at the Food Network’s eighth annual South Beach Wine and Food Festival’s Burger Bash last February 14. It’s an Angus beef cheeseburger ($6.19 for the single/$8.99 for the double) topped with crispy marinated shallots and ShackSauce. It’s the Shack’s first major burger debut since April 2012’s SmokeShack.
