British Pub Fare Faves #1 from Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill Atlantic City

We’re back again, and this time with some of our traditional British pub faves from Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Atlantic City. As promised.

We simply couldn’t dine at this new, popular Atlantic City restaurant for the first time without ordering the famous “Hell’s Kitchen” Beef Wellington. Like…it would be wrong to leave without that in the stomach. Really wrong. And let us tell you, we’re glad we were right because this right here was one of the high points of our evening.

Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill Atlantic City 3

Filet Mignon with Wild Mushroom Duxelles and Prosciutto in a Port Wine Sauce wrapped in an herb crepe. NOMS. Wonderfully balanced and absolutely easy to eat. The ultimate English comfort food, right here folks.

Along the same lines, we also decided to opt for a selection from the Pub Pie section. The Steak & Ale Pie was the winner because how good does Ale Braised Tenderloin sound?

Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill Atlantic City 1

And it really was as good as it sounds. And cute too. We love pot pies! Complete with Root Vegetable, Wild Mushrooms and topped with pastry. We’re loving this kind of flavor – can you tell?

But before the dinner portion came to an end, we decided to go all out. We had our eye on the highly raved about Ramsay Burger (which we are determined to get a big bite of soon), but with the help of our friendly server Dana, we chose to do it up with the biggest and baddest item listed under Sammies, Crumpets & Burgers.

Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill Atlantic City 2

May we introduce you to The Dublin. This giant Pumpernickle Boule is stuffed with Corned Beef, Sauerkraut, Thousand Island Dressing and Gruyere Cheese. And it’s massive. So massive that you need a steak knife to cut it, but it’s all good. Because it’s that dish served in a restaurant that everyone stares at as it comes to you and immediately wishes they ordered the same. Ya know?

Conclusion = you gotta try everything on the menu at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars at least once. And should you go into a food coma, we have the perfect solution for you –  a Gordon Ramsay Room Package for just $129. 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!

Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill Rocks Our Socks with these Traditional English Apps

We apologize for being a tad silent lately. We’ve been stuffing our faces with everything on the menu(s) at the new, beloved Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Atlantic City so needless to say, we have LOTS to talk about. We decided to try out the more traditional dishes on the menu during the first go-around. Since there are quite a few (and rightfully so), we’ve decided to break it down for you by course. You’re welcome. Not good to overwhelm Atlantic City blog readers!

So let’s start out with these little guys, shall we?

Gordon Ramsay Atlantic City 1

Or rather the Demons On Horseback. Medjool dates wrapped in bacon. And SO flavorful. Dates can sometimes be dried out when cooked, but not these tiny fellas. Perfect mouthful of salty and sweet. Find them in the “Snacks” section of the Bar Menu.

And then there’s the Starters portion of the menu featuring the mac daddy of all appetizers at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill AC, the Scotch Egg.

Gordon Ramsay Atlantic City 2

Let us preface by saying that we have never had a Scotch Egg before. It kind of looked a bit strange to us, but one bite into that thing turned us into presidents of the Scotch Egg fan club. Seriously bangin! So it’s a crisp soft boiled egg in a crispy sausage with HP-Braised Cabbage and English mustard. Arguably our favorite period. Translation = you must try the Scotch Egg.

Now that we’ve wet your appetite a bit, stay tuned for the entree edition of traditional faves from Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars next time! To wet your appetite and more, click here to book a Gordon Ramsay Room Package for just $129. 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!

The Top Five Fatty Fat Tuesday Foods in Atlantic City

Happy Fat Tuesday! Another excuse for you to eat whatever your heart desires just for this one day. We dig it. If you’re in Atlantic City on this fine, snowy day, we – as usual – have some suggestions on how to make your Fat Tuesday extra fat and extra delicious at Caesars, Harrah’s Resort and Bally’s Atlantic City. Indulge in any of these fabulous five choices:

The Devil Made Me Do It Sundae

The Devil Made Me Do It

This choice from Phillips Seafood at The Pier Shops at Caesars Atlantic City is seriously off the dessert charts. It may look like a normal sundae, but it’s not. So. Not. Ready for this? It’s freakin’ two pounds.  Two pounds of decadent, warm and chewy chocolate brownie doused with rich vanilla ice cream, luscious white chocolate drizzle, hot fudge, whipped cream and chocolate shavings. How can that not be good? It’s addicting. We’ve tried it. All two lbs of it. Hot fudge sundae on steroids, ya’ll.

Poolside Loaded Nachos

The Pool at Harrah's

Gorging poolside on Fat Tuesday totally ups the ante. So why not go all out with the Poolside Loaded Nachos at The Pool at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City? Covered and smothered with shredded cheese, olives, jalapenos, salsa, sour cream, and guacamole, you can never go wrong with this winning combo. Add chicken and/or beef if you dare. Go all out. And no sharing.

Bacon Mac ‘N Cheese Burger

Guy Fieri Atlantic City

A famous dish from Guy Fieri’s Chophouse at Bally’s. His New York City Burger Bash winner, to be precise. This 8 oz. burger is topped with bacon, Guy’s mac ‘n cheese, cheddar cheese and crispy onions! Get your mouth around that one! For some extra indulgences with dining credit at Guy Fieri’s Chophouse in addition to Diamond Check In, Breakfast In Bed, Round of Drinks, entry into The Pool and a 1 p.m. late checkout, click here!

Dorito Crusted Mac N’ Cheese

Sammy D's Atlantic City

As luck would have it, there’s another amazing mac n’ cheese type option that tops our Five Fatty Fat Tuesday Foods in Atlantic City Total AC Blog edition. This is the Dorito Crusted Mac N’ Cheese that you can score on the bar menu from Sammy D’s at Harrah’s Resort. That’s mac n’ cheese flavored with onions, jalapenos, cheese sauce and your fav chip – Doritos, Nacho Cheese style!

Spumoni Semifreddo

Atlantic City Italian restaurants 2

Now we’re getting all fancy on ya! Check out this new dessert selection from Nero’s Italian Steakhouse at Caesars! Beautiful, right? And all that color. But most importantly, all that cream. Namely, Cherry Vanilla and Pistachio Creams with Cherry Sauce and Vanilla Anglaise. This one will slide right down. A perfect ending to your Fat Tuesday.

So there are five perfectly amazing Fat Tuesday choices at Caesars, Harrah’s Resort and Bally’s Atlantic City. May your hunger be raging and stomach be strong!

La Tasha McCutchen Takes Over Twitter While Training for Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill Atlantic City

Hell’s Kitchen Season 13 winner and one of the new chefs at the upcoming Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Caesars Atlantic City, La Tasha McCutchen, joined us for a Twitter takeover yesterday where she took over the @CaesarsAC twitter handle to answer  some of ya’ll’s burning questions.


La Tasha McCutchen 11

There she is in action. And we totally dig the glasses!

Check out the recap if you missed it as well as some extra info that wouldn’t fit in 140 characters ;)

La Tasha McCutchen 1

La Tasha McCutchen 2

La Tasha told us that although her grandmother couldn’t always afford to buy presents, she always showed her love through cooking her and the rest of her family the best meals. :) There’s not too many times a good meal doesn’t beat material things!

La Tasha McCutchen 3

Just like La Tasha! ;)

La Tasha McCutchen 4

La Tasha says that on Hell’s Kitchen if there were times when Gordon Ramsay really thought he broke a contestant’s spirit, he would take them to aside off camera and ask them if they were really going to let the comment break them and if they wanted to be a quitter. He would tell them to keep pushing and not quit!

La Tasha McCutchen 5

Through all of life’s biggest moments, there’s always food to celebrate with no matter what the occasion!

La Tasha McCutchen 6

 

When the craziness dies down, La Tasha says that she can’t wait to try out Atlantic City’s historic Knife & Fork Inn!

The first time it snowed, La Tasha thought that it was the most beautiful sight ever, but a couple weeks later seems as if she is over the snow. We totally get it sister! She told us that she can’t wait until the spring. She is really into gardening and can’t wait to taste her first Jersey tomato! Heyy!
