Where to Eat at PROMOTIONS EAST
People who know me know I'm a foodie. Every business trip we take is an excuse for me to try new food, and when most people are doing last-minute packing on the night before a flight, I'm doing last-minute Yelping to find the best places to grab a bite.
Like many of you, the entire PM crew will be heading to Atlantic City for PROMOTIONS EAST next week. Living in Philadelphia, Atlantic City is in our backyard so it's easy for me to learn what's happening in the kitchens of the Garden State. If you're looking for somewhere posh to take your biggest client or a low-key spot to enjoy some quality food, I've got you covered. Check out some of these dining destinations when you hit the shore.
The newest destination in Atlantic City is Revel, a swanky casino and resort that opened in April. There are several bars and restaurants in the hotel, but I'm going to give you a clue to the only name you need: Jose Garces. Iron Chef winner Garces has been taking Philadelphia by storm with a slew of restaurants opening in the last five years, all to critical acclaim. Garces has brought his popular restaurants Amada, Village Whiskey and Distrito to Atlantic City, and will soon be opening a stand for his taco lunch truck, Guapos Tacos.
Everything this guy touches is amazing. I met him once and shook his hand, and ever since then my hand has tasted delicious (not that I tasted it or anything). Whether you want an exquisite assortment of smoked meats and cheeses from Amada or a classic cocktail from Village Whiskey, you'll find it at one of Garces' Revel restaurants. One last thing: Village Whiskey has the best burger in the world. In the world. Seriously, go there.
