Should Emeril's be full, Lagasse oversees a second restaurant at the Royal Pacific Resort, a few hundred yards away, that's actually more compelling. Pronounced "chop chop," it serves ostensibly Hawaiian creations, meaning there's a touch of Asian in the meaty offerings including garlic grilled tiger shrimp and banana leaf-wrapped pork loin shoulder. The daffy colors of the high-ceilinged dining room, exuberantly embellished by David Rockwell in rich orange and cobalt glass, are more a nod to Orlando's boundless showmanship than a portent of a saccharine meal.
