LK: Of all your projects thus far, what's your favorite?
CS: That’s like asking which of my children I love the most. I currently have three children, three restaurants and three more restaurants opening within the next 14 months, and I love them all equally. However, what I am doing at the moment to transform the old Le Bec Fin into Avance makes me especially proud.
LK: What do you want foodies to know about your Atlantic City Boardwalk restaurant?
CS: What we serve at Scarduzio’s at Showboat in Atlantic City is as good, if not better than, our restaurants in the more metropolitan areas. You don’t have to be a gambler to come dine at the restaurant. I am always saying to people that there are no slot machines in my restaurants.
LK: What is the ultimate meal there?
CS: I love the DeBregga prime dry aged strip steak. The product is superior and consistently delicious.
LK: Why did you decide to add a sushi menu to a classic steakhouse?
CS: Why not? I’ve seen a trend of the growing demand for sushi in casinos and I felt the offering should be available to the guests and players. I’ve always found that steak pairs well with seafood, so why not try it with sushi? I'm happy to say that it is working well at Scarduzio’s at Showboat in Atlantic City.
