For the second time in just a couple of months, the Cooking Channel show "Emeril's Florida" will feature a segment about a Bradenton-area restaurant.

On Sunday, the show will feature celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse dining at Beach Bistro in Holmes Beach. During Lagasse's visit to the restaurant a few months back, proprietor Sean Murphy served him Gulf Coast grouper with a toasted coconut and cashew crust and a red pepper-papaya jam.

The "Emeril's Florida" series returned for a new season in January with a visit to Maison Blanche on Longboat Key. Chef Jose Martinez served him octopus, cod and suckling pig.

The Beach Bistro episode is scheduled to air at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, with repeats at 9:30 a.m. Monday and 11:30 a.m. Thursday, March 27.

Beach Bistro is at 6600 Gulf Drive, Holmes Beach.
