The space formerly occupied by Mia is currently in the midst of transforming into an authentic British Pub. EDG Interior Architecture + Design is getting their hands dirty not only creating the traditional bar centerpiece, but 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.

The menu of course, will feature all your English pub favorites 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. A great selection of worldwide craft and microbrews will also be available at the bar as well as over 30 beers on tap!

Season 13 Hell’s Kitchen winner La Tasha McCutchen will also be a part of it all, perfecting the menu day in and day out in the kitchen!

With that being said, we were lucky enough to have the Michelin Star and esteemed chef himself, Gordon Ramsay, answer some questions for us about his new digs in Atlantic City and more! Check out the interview, below.

TAC: Why did you choose Atlantic City for your next east coast venture?

Gordon Ramsay: Based on the success out of Vegas and the amazing relationship we have with Caesars, it’s only fitting that the second stage of the development take place on the east coast. I’ve always been a big fan of Atlantic City and I’m really excited to open up there.

TAC: Us too! How do you choose restaurants when you are travelling?

Gordon Ramsay: Innovation, reputation and fresh, local ingredients.  For example, Atlantic City sits along the eastern seaboard, where some of the best seafood is caught in America.  So whenever I’m on the east coast, I always try to get to restaurants with great fresh seafood.

TAC:  What do you hope those who come to Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill Atlantic City take away after dining here?

Gordon Ramsay: We’ve had great success in Vegas at Pub & Grill with guests loving the variety of classic English pub favorites and extensive beer menu, and the décor and uniforms that give an authentic, lively atmosphere. We’re excited to bring that same unique experience to Atlantic City.

TAC: What are some of your personal favorite menu items?

Gordon Ramsay: My favorites on the menu are some British classics; bangers and mash, fish and chips, and London broil prepared on our wood-burning grill.

TAC: Yum! What do you think La Tasha will bring to the table at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars AC?

Gordon Ramsay: La Tasha is an incredibly determined leader with unwavering passion and drive. On her season of “Hell’s Kitchen” she proved that she has what it takes to make her mark on the culinary world, and I am so looking forward to having her join our team.

TAC: Your culinary journey started when you enrolled in a hotel management course in college purely by chance. What is your first memory of knowing that this was where you were meant to be?

Gordon Ramsay: When I was working at a country house outside of Stratford-upon-Avon where I got to spend six weeks in the dining room and then six weeks in the kitchen.  That’s when I knew it was meant to be.

TAC: In the little free time you have, you like to compete in and train for triathlons! What is a typical training day like for you?

Gordon Ramsay: If I have a race coming up, I will put in up to 25 hours of training during a week. Up at 4 am, in the pool by 5:30 for a one-hour-and-15 minute swim three days a week followed by two-and-a-half hours on the bike. I get in a 10K and 20K also during the week. Saturday’s I do a long run and long bike ride and then Sunday’s I do absolutely nothing! I train hard six days, one day off. If I don’t have a specific race that I’m training for I’m still up in the mornings going for long runs or bike rides. I really enjoy it, it’s my way of decompressing.

TAC: That’s incredible! How has this changed your daily eating habits?

Gordon Ramsay: My family and I have always had healthy eating habits. We cook often, always use fresh produce in season, and eat lots of protein. When training, I typically cut down the dairy because for me dairy is difficult to digest and also makes me feel sedated. I still have it in tea, and butter from time to time, but I feel a lot sharper when I cut it out.

TAC: Do you find that you use similar qualities in both triathlon training and in the kitchen?

Gordon Ramsay: Yes, both require dedication, patience, and stamina.

TAC: Most people assume they know you from what they see of you on TV, but those who follow your social media accounts know that you are very passionate, kind and family oriented. How would you describe yourself?

Gordon Ramsay: I’m a perfectionist and I’m passionate and my teams across the world know that, but when it comes to the family I’m the softie.

TAC: We knew it! ;) You’re also very connected with your biggest fans through social media. What’s one fan story that you’ll always remember?

Gordon Ramsay: I do lots of work with the Make-a-Wish Foundation and it’s so nice when they get the chance to come to set. After they visit, they send me & tweet me pictures and videos of the dishes they’ve cooked with their MasterChef aprons on and tell me how much cooking has got them through recovery from their illness.

TAC: Best gift anyone could ask for. Famous last meal question: What would yours be?

Gordon Ramsay: My mum’s Shepherd’s Pie, it’s the ultimate comfort food, and a hot chocolate fondant with milk ice cream for dessert! I have a terrible sweet tooth.

What about Gordon Ramsay comfort food and more for just $129? Book yourself a Gordon Ramsay Room Package! Package includes overnight accommodations, round of drinks at Toga Bar, $70 credit to Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill and and entry for 2 into Qua Baths & Spa! That’s a whole lot of comfort all under one roof! Book here now.

In the meantime, get ready for Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars! We’re so close!

Top Taco Tuesday Choices at Caesars, Harrah’s Resort & Bally’s Atlantic City!

Happy Taco Tuesday!

While Tuesday may not particularly be the most exciting day of the week, we think tacos usually make pretty good incentives to get through to the end. One of the best attributes of our friend the taco is that it can be stuffed with just about anything and still taste so delicious. Here are some of the best choices to reward yourselves with at Caesars, Harrah’s Resort and Bally’s Atlantic City:

 

Baja Fish Tacos at Continental

Continental Atlantic City

The Baja Fish Tacos at Continental at The Pier Shops at Caesars Atlantic City are by no means your average, typical, baja fish tacos. This blackened cobia is topped with creamy slaw and chipotle aioli for a smokier take on the classic. We like! When you add chipotle to just about anything, it’s usually a good day. Are we right or are we right?

 

Carnitas at Dos Caminos

Dos Caminos 5

While it’s pretty much blatantly obvious that Dos Caminos at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City is known for their great taco selection, we’re feeling particularly spicy today, so we’ve decided to feature the best taco to fit our mood. Makes sense, right? These carnitas bring the heat, ya’ll. Plus, you really can’t go wrong with slow roasted pork…ever. Combined with green chile salsa and pickled red onion, it’s the total, flavorful package.

 

S’mores Tacos at Guy Fieri’s Chophouse

Guy Fieri Atlantic City

When we said that tacos can be stuffed with just about anything…case and point. And how genius of the folks at Guy Fieri’s Chophouse at Bally’s too, might we add. Warm chocolate brownie with Nutella and homemade marshmallow?! Anything s’mores is a friend to us!

 

Tuna Tacos at Morton’s The Steakhouse

Morton's Steakhouse Atlantic City

And if you like to dip into the tartar waters of the taco world, the Bar Bites menu at Morton’s The Steakhouse at Caesars has some incredible ones. The Tuna Tacos are served with avocado, wakame, and pico de gallo. (We could eat that shiz spoonful after spoonful. Noms).

 

So there are four of the best Taco Tuesday options for ya at Caesars, Harrah’s Resort and Bally’s. Which ones do you fancy? Make up your mind quick, taco time is only hours away…until next week. ;)
