Steve Martorano Talks Martorano’s at Harrah’s Resort & Life Stories

After weeks of exciting anticipation, Martorano’s at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City officially opened its doors last night to the public. Drinks were flowing and food was plentiful. Some of the evening’s menu selections included:

Martorano's Atlantic City 1


Homemade mozzarella. To die for.

Martorano's Atlantic City 2Sea Bass and Broccoli Rabe.

Martorano's Atlantic City 3Orchette with Hot & Sweet Sausage.

Martorano's Atlantic CIty 4

Linguine in White Clam Sauce.

And so much more. And that’s just the food. Cook (as he prefers to be called as he is not a trained chef) Steve Martorano is a story in and of himself. His words can only do it justice. Check out the interview, below.

Martorano's Atlantic City 1

TAC: What are you most excited about opening a Martorano’s here at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City?

Steve Martorano: I came from nothing. I didn’t  go to schoo.l I didn’t have no trade. I didn’t have no vision or no dream. I just knew I had to go to work and pay bills. I was a street guy. You have to read between the lines about that. And now, I’m going to have my name up in lights in Atlantic City. I had it in Vegas, which is great. I have it in Florida, which is great, but coming back home to a native area where you were born and raised means more to me than anything.

TAC: What will guests be able to experience at Martorano’s that they won’t get anywhere else in Atlantic City?

Steve Martorano: What they are going to get from me, they’re not going to experience anywhere else in the country other than somewhere that copied my concept. I’ve been doing this concept for 24 years and now you go around, and other places are doing what I’m doing. The problem is they all think that playing music videos makes the success. The bottom line is that the star is the food. That’s why I’m here 17 hours a day and six days a week because my brand is the most important thing to me and I want this thing to be right because because the bar is set so high. People from New York, Connecticut, Boston, Philadelphia and South Jersey who have already been to my restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale will come to this one, so their expectations are already high and that’s the difficulty. This place is five times bigger than Oakland Park Boulevard, so that that’s my biggest dilemma right now. And the bar is even higher because I’m home. I used to come here, down the shore, when I had no money. I remember not paying money for the tolls, I would just drive through. And now, for me to be here with my name Martorano, right in my backyard, that’s a blessing.

TAC: You are also a talented DJ. Will you be DJing at Martorano’s at Harrah’s Resort at all?

Steve Martorano: Absolutely, yeah. I used to be the guy who brought the music to Valentino’s in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. I’m a Philly guy so I was raised on Howard Melvin and The Blue Notes, the O’Jays and the Trammps. I’m more excited bringing bringing the slow jams back.

TAC: We know that you didn’t want to get into the family business and that school wasn’t your thing. What was it that made you choose this career path and stick with it?

Steve Martorano: I didn’t have any options. My family was locked up during the 70′s and 80′s and a lot of people around me were getting killed and a lot of things were happening on the streets. I had two kids. People compliment me on my ‘vision’ and ‘dream’ all the time. What the f*ck you talking about, dream?All I knew was that I had to go to work to pay the bills. There was no vision. I like music so I cooked and played music. I like The Godfather. I like Goodfellas so I play those movies in my restaurant. There was no dream. It just happened. My goal was to pay bills and keep a roof over my family’s head.

TAC: Why was Florida the right place for you to start opening your restaurants back in 93?

Steve Martorano:  I opened a restaurant in Philly during the Iraqi War and at that time, the economy was going south. I lost everything. A friend of mine from Philadelphia was living in Ft. Lauderdale and I was about to go to the streets again. I needed a change and had to get out, so I went to Florida. Someone whispered in my ear to go to Coral Springs. I went and stayed for two days and everyone in the town was in bed by 9 o’clock. I was like what am I going to do here? I need some action.I called my friend who lived in Ft. Lauderdale and said this isn’t for me, I’m going back to Philly. He told me before I went back to look at this little store across the street. If I never went to look at that store, my life would have been completely different. I would have got on that plane and never went back to Florida again.I looked across the street on my way back to the airport. There were five tables and an open kitchen and I said, this is for me.  I went home back to Philly, called a realtor, made a deal, and that’s how it all started. But if I didn’t go look at that spot, who knows where I would be today.

TAC:   How has your menu changed from when you opened your first restaurant to now?

Steve Martorano: It’s basically still the same. We’ve grown. I have grown personally and my team has grown personally. The menu is basically what made us. Staples always stay. I have five restaurants and I add to them, but I always try to keep that Philadelphia comfort/neighborhood style of cooking. I have Pastina and Butter on my menu. When is the last time you saw that at a restaurant? The first time I did the Jimmy Kimmel show, I made meatballs. Jimmy told me to come to his house one Sunday to cook for about 30 guys. So we went to his house and did all this shopping. I cooked chicken cutlets, beer cutlets, calamari, stuffed calamari. I cooked for like seven hours and at the last minute, I made Pastina and Butter. They flipped out over the Pastina and Butter. I wanted to create a place that reminds me of the way my mother, my grandmother and my grandfather used to cook. I expect to bring this home feeling to Atlantic City.

TAC: Your meatballs have been named the best in the world by countless celebrities including Jimmy Kimmel. What makes them the best?

Steve Martorano: That’s another story. I have a new book coming out. My first book was called Yo Cuz: My Food, My Family, My Life, My Way. I self-published that book because publishing companies weren’t interested. I could only sell it in the restaurant and then eventually a division of Random House, the biggest publishing company in the world, bought my book.My new book comes out in September in every bookstore in the country. It’s called It Aint Sauce, It’s Gravy which tells why my meatball is better than everyone else’s. Ninety nine percent of restaurants make a meatball and they put it in marinara sauce. Martorano puts it in the Sunday gravy that’s flavored with meats and that’s what brings my meatball to that next level.

TAC: You’ve been featured on television shows and cooked for the cast of the Soprano’s among so many other things. Which one of these moments have been the most memorable for you so far?

Steve Martorano: I think going to Jimmy Kimmel’s house because there’s a funny story there. I was cooking and all of these guys were hanging around and laughing when the doorbell rang. Jimmy asked me to get the door, so I go to the door and it’s Tom Cruise and his mom! Tom Cruise looks at me and goes I heard you’re making bucatini carbonara. I said yeah, that’s what I’m making and he said that’s why I’m here. We ended up making three batches of bucatini carbonara. Another great moment in my life would probably be when Shaq gave me a championship ring with my name on it from the Miami Heat. That was great.

TAC: Famous last meal question. What would yours be?

Steve Martorano: If I had a choice I would want to sit and have dinner with Joseph Bonanno. He is a man of honor a man of respect.

TAC: What else is on your bucket list to accomplish?

Steve Martorano: Mario Lopez fell in love with my brand and fell in love with the idea of a guy that came from nothing trying to inspire people. No matter what life throws at you, keep going forward.I keep on getting knocked down and keep getting up, so that’s that inspiration. We own this brand called Yo Cuz which is a slang we use in Philadelphia. Whenever we sell Yo Cuz, the proceeds go to help the kids. These are kids that are told that they are nothing.  I’m here to show them look, I started out selling sandwiches door to door. I made the sandwiches in a basement. I didn’t get to where I am today by someone giving it to me, I got to where I am today from breaking my balls and going to work. Don’t ever let anyone tell you no. That’s why the Mario Lopez wants to do a show with us. He is in the process of selling the show, so I’m hoping to sell it.

So awesome! If you’re looking for great food, great stories and a great vibe, hit up Martorano’s at Harrah’s Resort the next time you are in AC! The best.



Boardwalk Cupcakes at Bally’s Atlantic City NOW OPEN!

The summer and beyond are both set to be sweet at Bally’s Atlantic City! Boardwalk Cupcakes JUST opened its doors to a very enthusiastic and sugar-craving crowd.

Boardwalk Cupcakes 1

Brought to life by Chief Cupcake Officer Deborah Pellegrino, known for being the award-winning Executive Pastry Chef for Caesars Entertainment Atlantic city AND the winner of the Food Network Challenge Mythological Chocolate Creations episode, the shop boasts an array of classic, favorite flavors: red velvet, vanilla, chocolate buttermilk, banana, gluten free and sugar free as well as some incredible, original flavors you surely can not get ANYWHERE else!

Check some of them out, below:

Boardwalk Cupcakes 2

Boardwalk Cupcakes 3

Elvis: Banana cake, raspberry jelly filling, peanut butter cream and apple-wood smoked bacon.

Boardwalk Cupcakes 4

Pig Tails: Maple vanilla cake, butterscotch icing and crispy bacon.

Boardwalk Cupcakes 5

Popcorn: Cake & salted popcorn buttercream.

And check this out. There are even some infused creations. Intoxications. As in glazed and infused with alcohol.

Boardwalk Cupcakes 6

This right here is the Beerita - Lager cake, filled with tequila key lime filling, iced in salted meringue.

And then there’s also the 007.

Boardwalk Cupcakes 7

Orange vodka cake filled with lemon lime filling, iced in orange Cointreau whipped cream. NOMS! Other intoxications include Chocolate Mudslide, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Pina Colada and Jack and Coke.

And to get even more 411 on the fabulous Boardwalk Cupcakes, see an interview with Deb Pellegrino, below.

TAC: How did your vision for Boardwalk Cupcakes to come about?

Deb Pellegrino: I love to create fun, funky desserts….but it has to be good, really good.  Looks are everything but taste is more!  When I was asked about doing a cupcake shop, I was not thrilled until I was allowed to do exactly what I wanted and they have certainly allowed me to do that. After visiting many, many cupcake shops in NYC, I knew exactly what I wanted in my shop.  Clean and white with bursts of bold colors.  I want the cupcakes to be the star of the show.  No tchotchkes needed!

TAC: Why will Boardwalk Cupcakes appeal to visitors in Atlantic City?

Deb Pellegrino: Who doesn’t love moist cake with enough icing for every bite  AND spectacular boardwalk treats rolled into a tender little cupcake?  I know our Boardwalk Collection will be the talk on the boards with the popcorn, cotton candy, coconut macaroon, sea salt, lemonade and soda pop flavors.

TAC: LOVE it. Did you already have these recipes in your back pocket or did you come up with some especially for Boardwalk Cupcakes? Which ones?

Deb Pellegrino: Only  the classics were in my back pocket, the rest were created just for Boardwalk Cupcakes. And I have to say that was a lot of fun.  The problem I had was there were too many flavors I wanted to put on the menu, but I managed to narrow it down to 32.  I still have options to add in daily specials!

TAC: What are the key elements to a perfect cupcake creation?

Deb Pellegrino: Love, care and then comes taste and how it looks.

TAC: Which one is your favorite so far?

Deb Pellegrino: Elvis is pretty darn cool.  It looks like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich made out of icing.  I love it.  And I can’t just choose one favorite, each cupcake has a special place in my belly.

TAC: How often will flavors change?

Deb Pellegrino: Holidays and seasons for the daily cupcakes, and if I see a cupcake is just not getting the love I intended it to get, we’ll retire it to the smash cup and create a new one!

We love options. And we love cupcakes. Don’t you? What’s not to love. Check out Boardwalk Cupcakes at Bally’s on the Wild Wild West end of the boardwalk daily from noon until 10 p.m.

Have you tried out the new Bar Menu at Sammy D’s at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City? It sure is getting a lot of good buzz!

For those of you that don’t know, the bar area at Sammy D’s has a bit of a different feel to it these days.

Sammy D's Atlantic City 2

If you don’t want to sit at the actual bar, the area behind the bar has been redone with cute, comfortable couches, chairs, low tables, high tables, basically something to fit everybody! And that goes for the menu too. If you’re looking for a quick bite or lunchable portion, the Bar Menu has it.

We’ll break it down for you with little bites and bigger bites:


The Chicken Parm Sliders seemed VERY popular when we visited this fine Atlantic City Italian restaurant yesterday.

Sammy D's Atlantic City 1

Other tinier options include Duck Bao Buns, Mac n’ Cheese (Dorito crusted, people) and the famous Spicy Lollipop Buffalo Wings. Check them and more out in the gallery, below.

As far as bigger offerings go, we thought that the Classic Steak Frites were an awesome lunch or dinner equivalent.

Sammy D's Atlantic City 3

Here you have a standard NY Strip steak topped with maitre’d butter and garlic aioli and served with french fries. The Loaded Cheddar Bratwurst, something you for sure can’t get anywhere else, is another great choice (covered with chili, cheddar, cole slaw, japapeno and chipotle mayo), as is the Bronx Bomber Flatbread. See them all, below.

And of course, what’s a Bar Menu without a little something sweet? Sammy’s famous ginormous cake slices will satisfy any sweet tooth and then some! Seriously, look at these things.

Sammy D's Atlantic City 4

Cotton Candy.

Sammy D's Atlantic City 6

And Oreo Cheesecake?! Are you kidding?!

Mmm. If you haven’t noticed by now, dessert is this blog’s breaking point. Anyway, head on over to Sammy D’s at Harrah’s Resort and try what all this good fuss is about! The Bar Menu is available from Thursdays to Mondays from 12 p.m. to 1 a.m. To clarify, Sammy D’s is also open for dinner as well Thursdays to Mondays from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. as well as breakfast (7 a.m. to 12 p.m.) and lunch (12 p.m. to 2 p.m.) Saturdays and Sundays.

Guy Fieri’s Chophouse will feature classic steakhouse selections, but of course with the usual Guy Fieri twist! Good grub like Java Rubbed Ribeye Chop and Spicy Bloody Mary Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail (below). Lots of steak, lots of seafood.

Guy Fieri 2

The bar area will also offer some unique options: craft beers and spirits from a small batch distillery as well as a slew of California wines. Another good tidbit: The bar will also span the length of the entire restaurant. Lots of room, folks!

Kevin Ortzman, President of Bally’s Atlantic City had this to say of Fieri’s impending arrival: “Atlantic City truly has become a foodie destination and visitors can now add Bally’s to their dining ‘must do’ with the addition of Guy Fieri’s Chophouse at Bally’s.
