Borgata Pastry Chef David Krzewinski’s job changes from day-to-day. One day, he can be meeting with a future bride helping her build a custom wedding cake, and the next, he can be designing desserts for a 1,200-seat event…
Let’s face it: Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time to celebrate with family and friends, but that huge dinner can make the holiday somewhat overwhelming for the person stuck cooking the feast. However, fear not: With turkey day right around the corner, Borgata’s signature chefs sat down with us to chat about some of their Thanksgiving tips and secrets to make your holiday preparation easy as (pumpkin) pie.
Borgata proved why New York City is often called the city that never sleeps. To celebrate the conclusion of their action-packed two day Savor Borgata Weekend, the resort turned their Event Center into a bustling Manhattan street festival, complete with a dancing Statue of Liberty and a replica of the Empire State Building made out of chocolate.
Savor Borgata Weekend kicked off with The Water Club’s Culinary Lifestyle Consultant, Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian, sharing his signature cocktail recipes with guests. There were three delectable options available for an exclusive cocktail party at the hotel’s Sunroom lounge. Check out the tasty options for your own holiday mixer!
You can expect to feel like family at Chef Michael Symon‘s new restaurant opening Spring 2017 at Borgata. In fact, the television culinary mogul decided to name his newest outlet after his mother.
“Angeline” made it’s Borgata debut during a preview dinner hosted on November 4 at the soon to be renovated space that will house the new restaurant on our property. Savor Borgata guests and fans of Symon were welcomed to the intimate gathering, where the Chef himself revealed the name, design, and cuisine from his upcoming eatery.
Well, we can’t quite promise you that, but we can guarantee that you’ll have a load of foodie fun (and learn a few things along the way that you can apply to your own cooking) at Borgata’s annual Savor Borgata event. The week-long festival that celebrates everything culinary returns to the resort from Sunday, October 30th through Saturday, November 5th.
I have a confession: I love food. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that I love the new Marketplace Eatery that opened earlier this month. Borgata is clearly the foodie capital of Atlantic City, with restaurants by the likes of Bobby Flay and Wolfgang Puck throughout the resort. But unlike a formal sit-down dining experience, the Marketplace allows you to immerse yourself head-first in a world of some of the coolest foodie items around.
I spent an afternoon rounding up some of my favorite items that you can purchase during your next visit…
And that’s by simply ordering a plate of The Metropolitan’s delectable oyster choices and then … splashing them with lemon juice and cocktail sauce like they were some sort of clam on the half shell.
“That upsets me so much, “Curran says, shaking his head. “When you come in and put cocktail sauce and lemon on them, then that’s really all you can taste. Oysters have very distinct, meaty flavors. But you could take six different varieties and put the cocktail sauce on them – and if I couldn’t see the shells – even I couldn’t really tell them apart. That’s all you taste. We try to come up with something for each variety, a special way of serving them that suits their unique flavor.
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.
