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.
Attention restaurant industry workers! Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is looking for you.
In anticipation of the opening of the Borgata Marketplace Eatery – developed in partnership with local restaurateur George Siganos – we’re holding a job fair May 23 to 25 at The Water Club at Borgata.
We’re looking for more than 100 workers ranging from baristas and cashiers to managers and shift supervisors. Many of the positions will be permanent and full-time. Borgata is seeking talented and motivated individuals that can meet our high standards and quality service.
Kate Siegel has made a healthy living from the digital relationship with her mom, South Jersey resident Kim Friedman, via her insanely popular Instagram account @CrazyJewishMom, where Siegel shares the juicy and downright hysterical unsolicited text messages that her mother sends her. Hopefully the two, who have been featured everywhere from O Magazine to 20/20, won’t be fighting over Hipster man buns and nude selfies when they make a special appearance at Borgata this Mother’s Day weekend. Both Siegel and Friedman will be on hand for two events at the resort on Saturday, May 7th, a perfect way to celebrate your own Mom. Read on for more for details!
And one of the best aspects of spring can be seen at the dinner table. After a long season of eating produce shipped in from hundreds, if not thousands of miles away, we can now stock our tables with locally grown fresh Spring fruits, berries and vegetables.
For an Executive Chef like Aram Mardigian, that also means breaking out the Spring recipes. Mardigian is a regular in our Savor Borgata Culinary Series “Lunch and Learn” presentations, so that means that you have the opportunity to break out his recipes as well this Spring.
Mardigian presents a special spring-themed Lunch and Learn event Memorial Day weekend on Saturday, May 28 at Wolfgang Puck American Grille. He’ll be showing attendees how to prepare a three-course lunch with wine featuring several of his classic Spring dishes.
We’re calling it our “Spring into Summer Luncheon with Aram Mardigan”
And while you can experience all the excitement and action of the “fastest two minutes in sports” at Borgata’s Racebook, keep one thing in mind.
The Kentucky Derby has endured because it is much more than a simple horse race.
The derby exemplifies a sense of style and southern charm that has been preserved down for decades. As much as it’s about 3-year-old thoroughbreds, it’s also about mint juleps and traditional Kentucky cuisine. When they play “My Old Kentucky Home” at Churchill Downs, there’s 142 years of tradition on display.
And Friday, May 6 – which is also the day the Kentucky Oaks is run – Old Homestead will become my Old Kentucky Homestead by teaming up with Kentucky bourbon distillers Woodford Reserve to present the Woodford Reserve Kentucky Dinner as part of the Savor Borgata Culinary Series.
Yeah sure they don’t run around killing gazelles like lions or soar above us like eagles. They just sort of sit there, in the bay, until somebody goes and digs them up.
But they’re still fascinating, living their little bivalve lives out in the water. Some of them are makers of pearls, providing us all with a safe gift choice for anniversaries. Some of them—called window pane oysters—have translucent shells that make nice, and much cheaper jewelry gifts all by themselves.
And of course, they’re mostly good eats.
Make that great eats. Wonderful eats
Hey, whatever they do out in the bay, it sure makes them tasty.
On April 23, we’re going to bump it up a notch by presenting The World is Your Oyster at 2pm, as part of the Savor Borgata Culinary Series. For this event, The Metropolitan will team oysters with another miracle of the modern world, namely beer (some wheat, some hops, some yeast and voila – beer).
In honor of Easter Sunday on March 27, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and most definitely Borgata Baking Co. present this little primer of fun facts on Easter treats to fill out your family’s Easter baskets.
Cupcakes – A small cake designed to serve one person. First showed up in an American cookbook in 1796 titled Ye Olde American Cookbook (We made the title up).
Easter Malt Ball Cupcake – The first malted milk treats were invented in the 1870s as an infant food. But people liked it so much, everyone started eating it – especially at the movies.
Caramel Cream Egg Pop – A pretty unique Borgata Baking Co. treat.
Cannoli – An Italian pastry dessert of the Sicily region. The singular is cannolo, meaning “little tube.” But most people use the plural as in “May I have more cannoli?”
Macaron – A French sweet meringue-based confection made with egg white, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder or ground almond and Borgata Baking Co.’s Thaddeus DuBois’ specialty.
Bonbons – If it’s a small sweet candy, you can call it a bonbon.
You know what’s better than Atlantic City Restaurant Week? How about Borgata’s Atlantic City Restaurant Month?
Let us explain.
People have been going so nuts for our prix fixe meals deals during this year’s Atlantic City Restaurant Week at The Metropolitan and N.O.W. for lunch and Fornelleto, Izakaya and Wolfgang Puck American Grille for dinner, that we just can’t see ending the deals after a week.
So while Atlantic City Restaurant Week ends March 12, our Borgata prix fixe meal deals will be available through March 31.
Get your choice of (also with a first course, soup and dessert) at N.O.W of:
Chicken Pad Thai: Wide Rice Noodles, Chicken, Peanuts, Onions, Egg, Scallions, Bean Sprouts, Sesame Oil, Cilantro, Fiery Fish Sauce
Vegetable Lo-Mein: Egg Noodles, Broccoli, Bean Sprouts, Green Peppers, Carrots, Onions, Scallions, and Soy Sauce
Peking Style Shrimp and Chicken: Shrimp, Chicken, Green Peas, Onions, Straw Mushrooms, Green Peppers, Carrots, Spicy Peking Sauce. Served with Steamed White Rice.
Or, at The Metropolitan (also with a first course and dessert):
Champignon Burger: CAB Ground Beef Stuffed With Crimini, Domestic & Portabella Mushrooms, Bacon Onion Jam, Brie, Tater Tots, Dijon Gravy
Fried Cod Fish Sandwich: Lettuce, Tomato, Red Slaw, Caper Aioli, Tater Tots, Dijon Gravy
And as everyone knows, the most fun comes before the awards are even handed out. We’re talking, of course about the red carpet, where we can all say things like, “Gee, not sure Jennifer Lawrence should have gone with the taffeta,” and “Leo’s tux just looks soooo much nicer than Bryan Cranston’s (yeah, it’s the tux).”
Ah yes, the beautiful people. Now most people around the country will be watching this glamour extravaganza in plaid pajama bottoms while eating a pint of ice cream. But here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, we think the red carpet should be even more of a big deal. And most of all, we think you should be on a red carpet as well.
That’s why the Savor Borgata Culinary Series will present A Night on the Red Carpet at Wolfgang Puck American Grille starting at 6:30pm February 28, otherwise known as Oscar night.
By the way, guess who’s providing the food for the post Oscars Governors Ball? Just a chef named Wolfgang Puck. Which means you’ll be able to sample the same food the big shots will get after the awards—before the awards.
