Dining in AC...
Hi wonderwheel! Here are some recs that my family & I love:
The Tropicana Hotel has some good options - a delicious Cantonese/Shanghai style Chinese place called Golden Dynasty, Il Verdi (Italian) and bunch of places at the new section they opened up called the Quarter. There you can find Red Square (Russian), Cuba Libre (Cuban) and Ri Ra (Irish pub fare).
Also - The Borgata has a TON of fine dining options. They have both Bobby Flay Steak and Wolfgang Puck American Grille to name a few.
Also - here's a good place to grab a sub for the trip home:
White House Sub Shop
2301 Arctic Ave.
Atlantic City, NJ
Have a great time!!
White House is a great choice for lunch. Best subs I ever had. But for dinner you must go to Chef Vola. It's hard to find and very hard to get in (because it's actually in a house) but it's so well worth it. It's one of my all-time favorite restaurants. Great steaks, salad,
pasta. Well worth the hassle of getting a reservation.
