Viva AC: The Top 5 Vegas Things In Atlantic City

Are you a Las Vegas fanatic? Are there just so many things about that destination that make you excited and energized?! Well, we have a secret for you. You may already know this tid bit. And you may not. But there is a whole ‘lotta Vegas up in Atlantic City right at this very moment. The tastes, the vibe and the ching ching. Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City properties got it too! In no particular order, check out the Top 5 Vegas Things In Atlantic City.

1. The Casino Floor at Bally’s Atlantic City

Atlantic City casinos

The casino floor at Bally’s Atlantic City was opened up and reconstructed at the beginning of the year. Instead of a crowded mishmash of machines, you’re now able to take a clearer pathway to your favorite games. Most of the table games are also conveniently located along the main aisles of the casino….just like Vegas! Bally’s Atlantic City and Bally’s Las Vegas casinos are insanely strikingly similar in terms of set up and end cap art.

2. Martorano’s at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City

Martorano's

Al Pacino and Jimmy Kimmel’s favorite meatballs, Italian classics (and we’re talking food and mob movies), disco lights, loud R&B music and slow jams aren’t just a winning combination you can only get in Vegas! While Rio Las Vegas was the first to bring the Martorano brand to the west coast, Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City brought it back east soon after. Same menu, same decor, same music, same movies and a killer concept you can’t get just anywhere…but you can get it in Las Vegas AND Atlantic City.

3. Dueling Pianos at Bally’s Atlantic City

Dueling Pianos

Strolling down the Las Vegas strip you see and hear many a’ dueling piano like the situation at the Napoleon Lounge at Paris Las Vegas, but did you know that this dueling piano action also goes down right off the Atlantic City boardwalk at Blue Martini at Bally’s? It’s true. New dueling pianists are welcomed every Saturday night to battle it out and take requests from the crowd. Plus you’re able to sip on unique specialty martinis (like marshmallow and gumball) while sitting back to enjoy the tunes. We love the energy of a piano, don’t you?

4. Gordon Ramsay’s Pub & Grill at Caesars Atlantic City (coming soon)

Gordon Ramsay Atlantic City

This one is coming soon. The construction walls are actually up as we speak, but Gordon Ramsay’s Pub & Grill (much like the one at Caesars Palace Las Vegas) is coming to Caesars Atlantic City in early 2015. Gordon Ramsay’s Pub & Grill is set to be the most authentic English pub (with over 30 beers on tap) in Atlantic City as it is in Sin City. The decor is also slated to be on point with the mothership such as the English telephone booth style backdrops and patio that extends outwards towards the casino floor.

5. Vegas Fries at Guy Fieri’s Chophouse at Bally’s Atlantic City

Guy Fieri Atlantic City 4

3 To Die For Desserts at The Steakhouse at Harrah’s Resort

It’s Tuesday, perhaps the most unexciting day of the seven day stretch, so Total AC Blog is here to sweeten up your week a bit. And by this we mean one of our most favorite things on this earth: dessert. You would be making a huge mistake if you underestimated The Steakhouse at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City for this most important course of a meal. They have some incredible options for all kinds of taste buds!

First off, check out the Chocolate Banana Cream Pie.

Atlantic City steakhouses 1

Mmmm! Chocolate crust with layers of light, fluffy chocolate cream filled with chunks of flavorful bananas. There’s nothing chintzy about this one, folks. Nothing. All big flavors, all beautifully complimented. Warning: This last course is addicting and will be gone before you know it!

Next we have the creme brulee.

Atlantic City steakhouses 2

Another item that makes our mouths water just by simply saying the name. Served with a side of tasty blueberries in a gooey pile of heavenly caramel, this dessert is perfect for a lighter ending to your meal. Decadent vanilla custard with the perfect amount of hard caramel on top. The sweetness of the caramel really keeps ya coming back for more! It’s just that good. And the consistency is perfect!

And finally, what is this?

Atlantic City steakhouses 3

Contrary to what your eyes may be telling you, it’s not a bald man, but rather something seasonably delicious. While it may not look like much, this tremendous puff pastry is filled with delicious apples, cinnamon, brown sugar and all that other good stuff used to make a fabulous candied syrup. This hot piece of apple crisp is served to you and then quickly topped with its soulmate – a heaping scoop of french vanilla ice cream. The portion size is incredible. We could eat this forever.

And that’s the moral of this story, really. We could eat this forever. We could eat any of these three forever and be perfectly overjoyed. The Steakhouse at Harrah’s Resort just has the right stuff for the desserts. They know what they are doing and they do it well.

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.

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.

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.
