Atlantic City - Teachers' Convention
- tuxedo Oct 12, 2009 06:56 AM
Staying at Bally's during teacher's convention in November - Need ideas for Thursday night dinner please.
Don't want to drive around town at all but willing to walk a short distance.
Open to all types of food without over the top pricing - perhaps under $200 for 2 -
I'm staying tuned to this thread also. My GF is going to the Teacher's convention for her first time as a real teacher and I'm tagging along. We are also staying at Bally's.
So far, my list of things to try are
I know the Melting Pot is kind of a cop-out for this board, but my GF seems to like it a lot.
Hey Tux....I would reccomend a trip to Little Saigon for Vietnanese. Service is slow but this is a must have in AC for asian. Chicken WIngs are the BEST! Now with the money you save at Little Saigon.... my absolute favorite Steakhouse in AC...take the cab to the Borgatta and try The Old Homestead. Pricey but worth the trip. The ribeye will melt in your mouth. Make reservations if you want a good seat. THis is one of the only negatives I could say about the place. We went without a reservation and were treated at first like we had the plague. It was a week nite and the place was not even half full. I had to ask for a different seat since we were seated right next to the noisy kitchen door. Heads up restaurants...just because folks dont have reservations doesn't mean they should be treated any differently like those who do. After all if I wasnt there that evening you have have made $300. less! Back to the food. I esp liked the artisan bread bowl (which you pay for). Money well spent. MacNacheese was decadent. Salad above par but forgetable. Kudos to the bar for some very good Caipirinhas.
One other recommendation I have would be OPA...located on the boadwalk near Trump Plaza. One of the very best Greek Salads and if you go for lunch on a warm day sit al fresco and pople watch!
Enjoy you stay!
