There are hands down SO many great entree options to choose from at The Steakhouse at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City. Yes, it’s a steakhouse. Obviously, the name of the restaurant couldn’t give it away more, but there’s truly something for everyone to choose from whether you’re a meat and potatoes kind of guy/gal or more of the max protein/cleaner eater.

Check out some of the best that span every category, below.

Organic Chicken Paillard

Atlantic City steakhouses 1

Look at this, healthy friends. First off, it’s organic. Good stuff. Lots of protein and it comes with a little heaping amount of roasted vegetables. Again, roasted =healthy. You don’t have to get fat in Atlantic City if you don’t want to! It’s also served with some BBQ chicken jus should you want to add a little more flavor to this plate. The chicken is extremely fresh and moist though! Honestly one of the tastiest chicken dishes we’ve ever had at a restaurant! A great option for those anti red meat folks.

 

3 LB Whole Maine Lobster

Atlantic City steakhouses 2

And three pounds it is. Delivered table side, au naturel. You can get this monster lobster steamed or broiled and the lovely wait staff will shell it right in front of you. If you REALLY like lobster, this is your dish. We’ve never been fed with so much fabulous lobster in our lives, it was like we were truly living in luxury. And of course it’s served with some melted butter goodness to make it even more scrumptious. Melts in your mouth, people. What more could you ask for?

 

Steakhouse Signature Filet Mignon Oscar

Atlantic City steakhouses 3

And now we have the best of both worlds from the Steakhouse Classics portion of the menu. Six ounces of Black Angus center cut filet mignon finished with jumbo lump crab meat and fresh crisp asparagus topped with hollandaise. Juicy, plump, delicious and flavorful. All in one bite! Out of all the classic steakhouse bites on the menu this one certainly takes the cake! The 20 ounce Delmonico is another crazy option too, but that’s for another blog.

Now that your’re in the mood for some succulent steakhouse comfort food, you have to get to Atlantic City because no one does it like The Steakhouse at Harrah’s Resort!

Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill To Open at Caesars Atlantic City In Early 2015!

EVERYONE….BREAKING NEWS!!!!!! THE BRITISH ARE COMING TO ATLANTIC CITY!!!!!!!!

And we are ecstatic about it! Obvi.  International celeb chef/restauranteur/TV personality, Gordon Ramsay, announced the opening of his first venture in Atlantic City earlier today!

Gordon Ramsay Atlantic City

Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Atlantic City will open in early 2015 in the space currently occupied by Mia. The stellar 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.

Sounds super cool, right?! Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Atlantic City will mark his fourth restaurant with Caesars Entertainment Properties. Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace, Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris and Gordon Ramsay BurGR at Planet Hollywood have been consistent top dining performers in the Las Vegas market.

“We’re really excited after such a great success in Vegas to be expanding to Atlantic City. We have a tremendous team, and it’s been a terrific partnership with Caesars,” said Gordon Ramsay.

Get your mind and your belly right for even more incredible Atlantic City dining options, folks! Good change is a-comin’!

The current menu features Mr. Freeze’s Wrath (Absolut Vanilla Vodka, Malibu Rum, Limoncello, Lime & splash of Cream) and Nero’s Signature Martini (Elyx Ultra Premium Vodka, Dry Vermouth & Lemon Peel).

The View

Caesars Atlantic City 3

Oceanside. Romantic. Perfect. What more can we say?

 

Sunday Brunch

Atlantic City brunch

This Sunday brunch gets A LOT of buzz. It’s amazing. Arguably the best in the city because there are SO many fabulous options. We’re talking breakfast usuals like omelette stations, Eggs Benedict, Belgian waffles, bagels and pastries. But we’re also talking specialties like fillets, grilled swordfish, hand carved meats, pasta, Mediterranean antipasti and sushi! And of course crepes and dessert. All in one place. We’re seriously getting hungry just thinking about it.

 

Always Adding More

Atlantic City steakhouses

You can never get bored of going to Nero’s Chophouse & Sushi Bar because they are constantly updating their menus and introducing new specials! For instance, they recently started up Sundae Sundays and Margarita Mondays, and added the Gin City (pictured above) to the mix at the bar – Gin, Dessert Pear Essence, shaken like crazy and topped with tonic. 

 

You really never know what kind of amazing, unique dining experience awaits you the next time you walk into Nero’s Chophouse & Sushi Bar at Caesars. The possibilities are endless! Stop by Sundays through Tuesdays from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. (10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for Sunday Brunch) and Fridays and Saturdays from 5 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.!

Must Have Small Bites at The Steakhouse at Harrah’s Resort

Recently we introduced you to 5 Must Have Cocktails at The Steakhouse at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City. You know what that means. It’s time for the next step, folks. It’s time for those first little bites you get with those drinks (besides the homemade bread and spreads which are also to die for) or alongside your entree. Just wetting your appetite, if you will. Check out some of the menu’s small bite winners:

The Wedge 

Atlantic City steakhouses 1

Chilled iceberg lettuce, heirloom tomatoes, Nueskies applewood smoked bacon, English cucumber and signature Maytag bleu cheese dressing. Let us tell you…the bacon and bleu cheese totally make this salad. More on the bacon later, it’s not your average porkbelly. The Maytag bleu cheese is unbelievably fresh and creamy. Never had bleu cheese like this before. Honestly.

 

Roasted Long Hot Peppers 

Atlantic City Steakhouses 2

If you like it hot (like really hot), you HAVE to try these things. SO flavorful and SO spicy! Two thumbs up for spicing it up!

 

Nueskies Thick Cut Bacon 

Atlantic City steakhouses 3

We told you that we would get back to the bacon. That’s because you can order a couple of wonderfully, thick-cut slices for a side dish. And you should. We know what you’re thinking. Bacon, really? But it’s worth it. This bacon is seriously one of our faves out of EVERYTHING on the menu. Who knew. Something so simple. But we’re not alone. Apparently this bacon has been critically acclaimed by The New York Times & Chicago Tribune. The glaze on top is mind-blowingly unbelievable.

 

Heirloom Tomato & Torched Burrata

Atlantic City Steakhouses 4

With micro basil and aged balsamic. Just thinking of the amazing taste of the torched burrata is making our mouths water. Fresh and wonderful.

 

Roasted Cauliflower 

Atlantic City steakhouses 5

If you like cauliflower, this is a sure bet. Look at that thing! That’s a whole head of cauliflower. A freakin’ ginormous head of cauliflower. You really get your money’s worth here, people. And it’s tasty, delicious and nutritious!

 

Signature Lobster Mac & Cheese

Atlantic City steakhouses 6

Om to the nom. The lobster (as everything else served by this awesome Atlantic City steakhouse) is SO fresh and savory in this dish! And the cheese seems light and tasty, not to overpower the lobster. Definitely one of those “just one more spoonful” type deals. Worth it!

 

Now that we perked your taste buds a bit with the must have small plate selections at The Steakhouse, it’s time for you to go try them out yourselves. It’s only fair, right? Visit The Steakhouse at Harrah’s Resort Sundays through Tuesdays from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., Fridays 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturdays 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.

We Like Being Fishy: The 5 Best Places To Get Seafood in Atlantic City

There, we said it. We like being fishy. Probably because you can really get some great seafood here in Atlantic City. And we don’t know about you, but our seafood radar really goes bizerk during this time of year. Therefore, we’re here to tell you the five best places in AC to satisfy your fishy cravings.

Harry’s Oyster Bar & Seafood at Bally’s Atlantic City

Harry's Oyster Bar

Duh, it says it right here in the title. This joint serves up some of the tastiest seafood in town including a raw bar with over a dozen different oyster varieties, clams, shrimp, lobster, tuna tartare, crabs and ceviche! The menus are also printed daily to feature the freshest catches around. Be entertained here, too. Jam out to live music in the courtyard during the warmer months and catch a game or two on one of the nine, large, flat screen TVs. We haven’t even told you the best part yet. Harry’s Oyster Bar & Seafood at Bally’s is historic! From the same family that brought you Dock’s Oyster House & Knife & Fork Inn, Harry’s Oyster Bar  brings the old-time oyster bar look and feel with a neighborhood vibe.

Nero’s Chophouse & Sushi Bar at Caesars Atlantic City

Nero's Chophouse & Sushi Bar

You can also dig in to some of the freshest catches at Nero’s Chophouse & Sushi Bar at Caesars! Nero’s prides itself on promoting organic selections and using local product and growers whenever possible. The upstairs space also boasts a terrific raw bar (pictured above) and fabulous tableside ocean views of Atlantic City. Plus, their Sunday Brunch is arguably the  best in the city and the only place where you can enjoy the majority of these great seafood offerings combined with classic brunch favorites.

McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood Restaurant at Harrah’s Resort

McCormick and Schmick's 1

Harrah’s Resort is home to McCormick & Schmick’s South Jersey location. Menus at this establishment are printed twice daily to get the freshest seafood onto your plates! In order to do this, chefs here work with seafood purveyors  to be on top of all the local “gets” and also bring in more than 30  other selections at the peak of their seasons such as Alaskan Halibut, Northwest Salmon, and Hawaiian Mahi Mahi to name a few.

Guy Fieri’s Chophouse at Bally’s Atlantic City

Guy Fieri's Chophouse

The new Guy Fieri’s Chophouse at Bally’s offers a mashup of seafood flavors and styles! The best way to start off any meal at Guy Fieri’s Chophouse is by creating your own seafood tower from Guy’s Ultimate Raw Bar. Choose from East and West coast oysters, local clams, half lobster, Split King Crab Legs, Jumbo Shrimp and tuna tartare served with Guy’s signature sauces. The menu also includes multiple seafood cocktails, broiled oysters (like Garlic Bacon Parmesan and House Made BBQ), sushi, crab and lobster selections. It’s a good kind of fishy!

Phillips Seafood at The Pier Shops at Caesars Atlantic City

Phillips Seafood 4

This Atlantic City location at The Pier Shops at Caesars marks Phillips Seafood eighth restaurant along the east coast. What started as one seafood processing plant on Hoopers Island in the Chesapeake Bay has turned into full service restaurants, satellite locations and frozen grocery selections. But let’s get back to the AC, shall we? Crab cakes are king here, people. Fun fact: secret ingredient is Ritz crackers instead of breadcrumbs. Also, be sure to enjoy a nice view of the Atlantic City beach while dining here.

So there ya have it. The five best places in Atlantic City for seafood, seafood and more seafood. Sometimes you’re just in that fishy mood!
