La Tasha McCutchen Crowned Winner of Hell’s Kitchen Season 13 & Chef of Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Atlantic City

Chef Gordon Ramsay named Florida native La Tasha McCutchen champion of Season 13 of Hell’s Kitchen in the final episode which aired Wednesday, December 17th. McCutchen’s winnings include a chef position at the new Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill slated to open at Caesars Atlantic City in early 2015.

The newest Caesars employee celebrated her win at her new digs this past Wednesday and surprised guests at the Hell’s Kitchen Finale party held in the Diamond Lounge. Viewers cheered her on as she addressed the crowd.

Hell's Kitchen season 13

“I’m so grateful, so honored and so blessed for everything that has happened throughout this journey,” she said. “For my foundation that stands behind me, the reason why Chef Tasha is who she is. I just want Atlantic City and New Jersey to know that I’m bringing the love to the east coast. I’m going to show you my true passion and true love for what I do and what I’m blessed to do for others. We’re about to make a difference here at Caesars Atlantic City.”

Season 13 contestants Frank Bilotti, Ashley Sherman, Sterling Wright, and finalists Jennifer Salhoff and Sade Dancy also joined McCutchen at the event.

Hell's Kitchen season 13 2

Fans of the show will be lucky enough to meet Chef La Tasha and taste her work at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill starting in February.  The new joint will offer authentic British pub cuisine with the occasional Jersey flair utilizing the area’s freshest ingredients and resources. Menu items include bangers and mash, fish and chips, roasted chicken and of course the famous Ramsay London Broil.

Also true to pub form, the beer will be a-flowin’ as the bar will act as the centerpiece of the restaurant. Get ready for a great, worldwide selection of craft and microbrews and choose from more than 30 beers on tap! Kegs will also play a huge role in dining experience and design.

Additionally, EDG Interior Architecture + Design will create additional spaces for a vintage-style lounge, a private dining room and numerous casual dining rooms decked in worn woods, traditional English telephone booth backdrops and historic pop culture wall relics. The patio of the current space will also expand well beyond it’s original size where guests will be able to experience the energy of Caesars Atlantic City like no other.

Until then…keep checking back with us for more updates on our new chef and Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill!

Oshi Sushi & Sake Is The New Go-To Foodie Destination at Harrah’s Resort

There’s a new stop for sushi lovers in Atlantic City. Sort of.

Atlantic City sushi 1

Oshi Sushi & Sake at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City opened November 21st to rave reviews. Longtime fans of the city may remember this brand from the former Showboat Hotel in the space that was most recently occupied by Scarduzio’s Steak & Sushi Lounge, both of which featured the talented work of Chef Armiyanto “Harry” Setiyaki. So who better to own the new kitchen at Harrah’s Resort?

Atlantic City sushi 2

While Chef Harry’s resume includes working under famed sushi Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, representing the United States in the 2014 World Sushi Cup, and serving as a member of the All-Japan Sushi Master Association, his authentic and beautiful artistry can be traced back to learning at the knee of his grandfather in Japan.

This is particularly evident in his featured Omakase platter, a six or eight-piece handcrafted dish comprised of the day’s freshest cuts flown in from all over the world.

Atlantic City sushi 3

Just LOOK AT THAT. Where can you find sushi so exquisite, tasty and fresh?! Chef Harry’s talent is absolutely, positively unmatched.

The menu at Oshi Sushi & Sake also consists of a handful of various starters from the Pepper Tuna Salad made with fresh seared Ahi, avocado, cucumber, daikon and seaweed salad to the Shishito Peppers served with miso dressing and crispy shallots, 10 gorgeous sushi rolls, and seven selections of sashimi or nigiri, 2 pieces a la carte. Then of course there’s the sake – TyKu Coconut, TyKu Black and TyKu White, along with beer and non-alcoholic options to wash it all down.

Take a look at some of the items, below:

Tuna Tartare

Atlantic City sushi 4

Massago, cucumber, jalapeno & crispy wonton chips.

 

Katana Roll

Atlantic City sushi 5

Avocado, Spicy Tuna, Cucumber, Seaweed & topped with Yellowtail.

 

Fujiyama Roll

Atlantic City sushi 6

Yum. And then some. Oshi Sushi & Sake at Harrah’s Resort is located at the former site of Temptations, adjacent to The Pool. Stop by any time from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays or 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Thursdays and Sundays.
