Celebrity Chefs, Poker, and Pedicures-Borgata Casino and Spa has it all

Posted: Aug. 9th, 2006  |  By JustLuxe Team
Luxury Resorts & Casinos: Where can you find Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay and Michael Ming under one roof? No, we're not talking about a Food Network special. We're talking about Atlantic City. You won't find these red-hot chefs warming seats on the casino floor you'll find them firing up the grill at Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa. Whether you crave Wolfgang's modern French food with Californian and Asian influences, Bobby's mouth-watering steaks or Michael's innovative seafood, you don't have to walk far to sample something from each scrumscious menu. Start with the Truffled Potato Chips With Maytag Blue Cheese And Chives at Wolfgang Puck American Grille, move on to the Pan Seared Black Bass "Aqua Pazza" with Shrimp, Mussels, Clams, and Chili-Lobster Broth.

Next, get lost at Bobby Flay Steak, a vast 11,000-square foot space designed by David Rockwell that fuses modern design with natural materials like leather, cast glass and hewn woods. Whet your appetite with the Lobster Crab Cake with Saffron Aioli and finish with a signature Philadelphia-style Strip Steak, a Bobby Flay specialty. If you have any room left-and you'd better-end your culinary adventure at Michael Mina's restaurant, Seablue. After you taste the Scallop Ceviche with avocado and lavosh crackers and the two-pound Maine Lobster Pot Pie, you won't mind floating back to your room (only for a momentary reprieve before gambling the night away).

Above and beyond these fabulous world-class restaurants with A-list chefs, you'll find even more restaurants at Borgata, including rising-star chef Luke Palladino's Italian eateries, Specchio and Ombra; the elegant Suilan by Susanna Foo; the New York-landmark Old Homestead Steakhouse and MIXX, a restaurant and nightclub. While the food is worth a trip alone, the 125,000-square-foot casino floor with 3,600 slot machines and 145 table games is icing on your three-layer buttercream chocolate cake. Try your luck at poker, blackjack, roulette, Baccarat, Racebook, Pai Gow tiles and Sic Bo. You might get enough skills to make it to the World Poker Tour.

Once you've eaten yourself silly and gambled away your 70-foot yacht, hopefully you saved enough mad money for a trip to the spa. Borgata's European-style, 54,000-square-foot Spa Toccare, complete with salon, fitness center and barbershop, is the preeminent place to indulge and escape in Atlantic City. So, practice your poker face, fast for a week and get ready to gamble, eat until you can eat no more and get pampered like a VIP-Atlantic City style. For reservations call 1-866-MY BORGATA or visit www.theborgata.com.
