Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Metropolitan, one of our original casual dining bistros, isn’t the type of establishment that fits into a nice little restaurant genre.
It has the ambiance of a European bistro, serves contemporary and classic American dishes and has the best oyster bar you’ll find anywhere in Atlantic City.
So obviously, as you’d expect after reading that description, on Sunday evenings (after 3pm) The Metropolitan offers up a full-on Mexican Fiesta.
There’s always something comforting in the thought of combining the old and the new – especially when it comes to great restaurants like Fornelletto.
When you descend the winding staircase that creates the grotto like feel of our fine Italian restaurant, there’s a lot of the familiar to take comfort in.The Tuscan ambiance, the truly amazing wine selections and the tradition of menu selections that have been in place since the restaurant and Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa first opened.
No better dish signifies this than Fornelletto’s Veal “Osso Bucco” Ravioli.
At Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, there’s a lot going on to appeal to the social media and online app conscious – Premier Nightclub and our great nightlife, fabulous restaurants, poker tournaments and online gaming at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com, just to name a few.
But perhaps most importantly, Borgata is riding the biggest online app craze going.
Yes, we have PokeStops – at least five and counting.
In a word, we’re honored.
If you haven’t heard of the craze called Pokemon Go – maybe you live in a cave, for example – it’s a game designed for smartphones that has millions of people scouring the country for little pocket monsters (Really, that’s what Pokemon means). And when we say millions, we mean millions as the game has been downloaded a reported 7.5 million times and it was released less than two weeks ago. That means thousands of people probably downloaded it since you began reading this post.
This August, Borgata is turning to the Great White Way to heat up their entertainment options. Some of Broadway’s biggest performers from Hamilton, Wicked, and The Phantom of the Opera area headed to the Atlantic City resort for multiple memorable summer nights full of show tunes we all know and love.
For many music fans, Bob Dylan is a legend. The 76-year-old Dylan has had a career that’s hard to quantify into words. Folk music pioneer, socially influential protest singer, pop music star and rock music star (you know, when he went electric).
His recording career, spanning more than 50 years, has explored the traditions in American song—from folk, blues, and country to gospel, rock and roll, and rockabilly to English, Scottish, and Irish folk music, embracing even jazz and the Great American Songbook.
This is one guy we’re talking about here.
When Bob Dylan rolls into the Borgata Event Center Sunday July 10, you can expect a true master to embrace his latest incarnation – that of the Great American Songbook. That’s because his last two albums – the 36th and 37th studio albums of his career – were Shadows in the Night, featuring ten songs written between 1923 and 1963 and recorded by Frank Sinatra and Fallen Angels, which was described as “a direct continuation of the work of ‘uncovering’ the Great Songbook that he began on last year’s Shadows In the Night.”
Is there anything more American – and more summer appropriate – than a nice steak dinner? Americans have had a love affair with steak ever since cowboys ran herds of cattle across the prairies to places like Kansas City and St, Louis.
Or at least we’ve had the love affair with beef ever since people started watching movies about cowboys running cattle across the prairies with guys like John Wayne yelling things like “We’re burning daylight.”
We know a lot goes into getting us a prime cut or steak on our tables. And at Borgata, we understand steak like no other place on the East Coast.
In case you were wondering, yes, Jane Lynch can really sing.
The actress, best known for her stint in the insanely popular Fox television hit Glee, took to the Borgata Music Box stage on Saturday evening, along with a bunch of her friends in harmony, to perform her touring set aptly titled See Jane Sing. It was a delightful series of song with quite a punch of darkly humorous sarcasm weaved throughout. Ms. Lynch’s lighthearted night of entertainment was just what the doctor ordered…
