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.
When Angeline opens in 2017, diners will be immersed in a world of dark wood, leathers, and brass accents. There will be a glass wine “wall” in the middle of the establishment where the restaurant’s extensive selection of vino will be stored.
As for the food, it will be a mix of Chef Symon’s signature style along with traditional Italian dishes. During the Savor preview dinner, guests were greeted with a family style salumi board, complete with various accompaniments, followed by a refreshing salad made of escarole, shaved parmesan, and artichoke. As for the pasta course, the Chef prepared butternut squash tortellone with brown butter, white truffle, and pistachio. He later served a roasted rack of veal with soft polenta. For those who saved room for dessert, a tasty pear fruit crostata with mascarpone gelato was the perfect finishing touch.
In addition to Chef Symon, television favorite Marc Summers served as the evening’s Master of Ceremonies, and Borgata’s own Geoffrey Zakarian was on hand to welcome his friend and fellow Iron Chef to the team.
