Emeril Crowns Twin Anchors An 'Original'

Emeril Lagasse on Wednesday taping "The Originals" at Twin Anchors.

I'm gonna keep this short and sweet.

Famed chef and television personality Emeril Lagasse was in town Wednesday afternoon taping his new restaurant-focused show for The Cooking Channel.

It's called "The Originals," and one of my Ultimate Insiders was lucky enough to be in attendance at the first taping at Twin Anchors—the legendary Old Town barbecue joint.

You might agree or disagree with that honor, but the venue has been there since 1932. Rumor has it that Al Capone used it as one of his "getaway" spots because of its many hidden tunnels.

There's no word yet on the air date, but it will be interesting to see exactly why Lagasse decided to use it . . .
