Need Atlantic City Rec's for Friday Night!

Hounds, I need your help you help and fast! Will be spending tomorrow (Friday) night in AC with friends and have been put in charge of where to eat. I have never eatan in AC before so I need some recommendations. My friends have eaten at Buddakan and liked it. I'm looking for either flashy and upscale (like Buddakan) or out of the way and lid back. Any cuisine.

I did an internet search and saw places such as Girasole, Lefty's (which sounded interesting) as well some smaller Vietnamese and Indian places. I thought I saw a Cuban place (not Cuba Libre) bu I could be mistaken. My friends know good food (as do I) so I want some place where the food will be at least above average. I need these rec's tonight so I can plan for tomorrow night. Thank you!

  1. You might want to consider Dock's Oyster House on Atlantic Avenue. I haven't been there in years but it used to be good. George Perrier has a place called Mia in Caesar's (not on the Pier with Buddakan). Best I can do for flashy and upscale or out of the way/noncasino. Hopefully, this will be a start for some more knowledgeable suggestions as time is getting close.

    1. I've been to Wolfgang Puck's and Bobby Flay's places in the Borgata, both are pretty good though all I had at Flay's was a tuna tartare app.
