Atlantic City Restaurant Week March 4 – 10

Atlantic City Restaurant Week begins today. I hope you have your reservations! I have mine! To help kick off the event The Atlantic City Country Club was the place to be for the Taste of Atlantic City Restaurant Week Exclusive Preview Event. One hundred percent of the proceeds benefited the ACCVA Foundation, Alcove of Atlantic County, and Community Foodbank of NJ. Fifteen of the restaurants participating in Atlantic City Restaurant Week were on hand to highlight one or more of their signature dishes to hundreds of hungry diners more than happy to oblige.

The restaurants were set up all around the dining room as far as the eye could see with creative small plates which The Atlantic City Press was kind enough to make an easy task of carrying with a cute blue tray with a space for a drink and a  plate or two or three. Our friends along with my husband and myself made our way around (and around) eating from all the delicious offerings. Phillips’s Seafood served mini-crab cakes with cajun remoulade, . It was Lobster Avocado Taquito at Fin, Tropicana. Clam Chowder from Harry’s Oyster Bar and Seafood at Bally’s and  Misoyake marinated Emperor Black Cod and Coconut with Mascapone Risotto from The Reserve.  Host Ed Dagger created Shrimp and Chorizo Spring Rolls with Wasabi Mustard and Sweet and Sour sauce. These scrumptious dishes were only some of the best of the best ofl City! Melting Pot dipped “Ginormous” Strawberries in sweet chocolate, not to mention a Dessert Room filled with delectable pastries, mousse, cookies and everything in between. Specialty desserts were also hand crafted by Harrah’s Executive chef. Cotton Candy Cake (it looked just like it), Red Velvet and Fudge cake was represented by Sammy D’s at Harrahs. Music was playing and the bar was open adding to the festivities.
