Did they have cranberry sauce that was perfectly shaped like a can? Did they put marshmallows in the yams? Oysters in the stuffing?
Well, no, but by all accounts it was a pretty good feast of turkey, waterfowl, venison, fish, lobster, clams, berries, fruit, pumpkin, and squash.
Of course turkey was the big popularity winner on that menu down through the years and even Alexander Hamilton—the guy on the $10 bill—proclaimed that “no citizen of the United States should refrain from turkey on Thanksgiving Day.”
We here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa love being part of the Thanksgiving dinner tradition and unlike many restaurants that close for the day, Borgata Dining is open and serving up turkey dinners at our fine dining restaurants.
And we don’t skimp on dessert either. We don’t know if the Pilgrims baked those fruits and berries into pies, but we do know that Borgata Executive Pastry Chef Thaddeus DuBois makes the best Thanksgiving pies.
That includes apple crumble, pumpkin, and cherry for $10 and pecan for $12. Order in person at Borgata Baking Co. and the pies will be available for pick-up starting at 11am Tuesday, November 24 through 6pm on Thanksgiving Day.
The pilgrims never had it so good.

There was a time when tequila was thought of as a drink to enjoy as a quick shot—paired with lemon and salt—or in a Margarita, and that was pretty much it. Tequila wasn’t a drink you had at meals, or when enjoying hors d’oeuvres. The culinary world hadn’t yet embraced the nectar of the agave plant.
But that kind of thinking is long gone, and pairing food with fine tequila has become an art all its own.
At Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Gypsy Bar—our renowned Tequila bar—it’s also an art that Borgata has mastered, along with the equally important skill of creating Tapas.
Tapas are a wide variety of appetizers, or snacks, in Spanish cuisine that have become so popular, they are often combined and mixed and matched to make a full meal.
You’ve probably figured out where we’re going with this.
The two-day festival, September 12 & 13 is an extravaganza of food and entertainment that celebrates the treasures of the Atlantic Ocean, while highlighting the East Coast’s favorite sea side city. More than 50 restaurants and culinary personalities are participating.
The stated goal of the festival producers is to give event attendees a reason to spend the day in Atlantic City. Whether it’s trying local restaurants, sipping Jersey beers, paddle boarding, cooking with local chefs, playing in the sand or getting a proper wine education, you’ll find yourself lost in the Atlantic City Seafood Festival and all that it offers.
The festival also includes a Chowder Cook off to benefit the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. After an in-house contest at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Borgata Buffet Chef Angel Torres will be representing Borgata in the cook off.
