Casa D'Angelo Featured on Cooking Channel's Emeril's Florida (Video)

Angelo Elia, one of South Florida's most respected chefs, gets the spotlight this weekend when Emeril Lagasse visits his Casa D'Angelo for this week's episode of Emeril's Florida.

The episode, titled "Big Night Out," sees the beloved chef best-known for his catch phrase "Bam!" dining at some of Florida's chicest restaurants, including Salt at the Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island, honored with a AAA Five Diamond award; and Michael's on East, Sarasota's only AAA Four Diamond award restaurant.

That's why South Floridians should be so proud to see chef Elia in such prestigious company. His Casa D'Angelo is the third restaurant featured on the show, and with good reason.

Clean Plate Charlie has named Casa D'Angelo one of the ten best restaurants in Fort Lauderdale and one of the ten best Italian restaurants in Broward and Palm Beach counties. It was also named one of the most romantic restaurants in our part of the world. Elia also made our list of the ten best chefs in Broward.

Elia has also received the Best of Award of Excellence from Wine Spectator magazine and has received numerous Golden Spoons from Florida Trend magazine.

Catch Elia (and Emeril) on the Cooking Channel this Sunday, January 11, at 2:30 p.m. The show will air again on Monday, January 12, at 9:30 a.m. and on Thursday, January 15, at 10:30 a.m. You'll see the two chefs drinking wine while preparing branzino Mediterranean and homemade pappardelle with porcini mushrooms.

Here's a preview of what you'll see:
