ATLANTIC CITY — Tis the season to be drinking seasonal beers and enjoying hearty fare, and Revel is on board with its “Oktoberfeast 2012” scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 19-21.
Revel’s SkyGarden will be transformed into the BierGarden with lit-up beer tents, barrel and bench seating, live music and a unique selection of beers, wines and ciders. There will also be authentic German fare like streusel, pretzels and brats. The weekend will continue with seasonal feasting menus and other festivities throughout the resort.
The BierGarden in the SkyGarden will be held on Saturday from 2-9pm and Sunday from 11am-5pm, and will be open to all, including resort and non-resort guests.
Revel will be also offering a Brewhaus Cocktail Party on Friday from 6-8pm and Saturday from 5-7pm in the O2 Lounge and Lobby for resort guests only. This event will feature a live band, traditional German brews and complimentary cocktails for the first hour. Resort guests will also be invited to an Oktoberfest Nightcap on Friday and Saturday at the O2 Lounge from 11am-1am both nights. It will feature a live acoustic guitarist and signature German drinks.
Tickets for the BierGarden in the Skydarden will be $40 for eight food-and-drink tickets in advance, or $48 for eight tickets the day of the event. Additionally, Revel’s curated collection of outstanding chefs will be offering special fall menus, including samplings by chef Jose Garces (pictured left) from his new book the Latin Road Home.
Not just a cookbook, Latin Road Home is also a travelogue and a memoir that offers a personal look back at the food traditions that have shaped Garces’ life and cooking style, from his family’s ancestral home in Ecuador to his ongoing work as an award-winning chef and restaurateur across the United States.
“This book is a deeply personal project for me: it allows me to trace the cultures and cuisines that have shaped me, both personally and professionally,” says Garces, who owns three restaurants inside Revel including Amada, Village Whiskey and Distrito Cantina.
“Throughout my career, I have built on what I know and used it to explore new and different places, and this book traces that journey — and with it my life to this point.”
When Revel first exploded on the Atlantic City scene last spring, one of its very first events was a delightful culinary event, the Taste of Revel. The casino is continuing and expanding its original series of events with this year’s second annual Taste of Revel culinary weekend that will be the finishing touch to a week long, resort-wide epicurean extravaganza from Monday, May 6 through Sunday, May 12.

With all the complexities of opening a brand new destination resort in Atlantic City, the executives at Revel already had a lot on their plate. However, those same executives decided to put some great food on the plates of visitors, by presenting the inaugural Taste of Revel, presented by Food & Wine and created in partnership with Travel + Leisure. This three-day epicurean extravaganza from May 18-20, will feature exclusive experiences developed specifically for the 6.3-million-square-foot beachfront destination.
From a casual lunch-truck approach to modern Mexican to the finest in French-inspired cuisine, Revel will have the entire dining spectrum covered.
Wiedmaier’s room won’t be the only place to grab a steak at Revel. Chef Marc Forgione, one of Revel’s two TV Food Network “Iron Chefs” (Philly-based Jose Garces is the other) will be opening American Cut, which he described as his spin on a “classic steakhouse.”
When Revel Entertainment opens Atlantic City’s first new casino resort in nine years on April 2, CEO Kevin DeSanctis will be borrowing an entertainment page right out of his old Mohegan Sun playbook. Revel’s guests can expect to find free entertainment in a venue known as The Social, an open, 700-capacity room smack in the center of the gaming floor.

Revel continues to back up its claim that the property will be a mega-casino complex with the announcement that Food Network Iron Chef Jose Garces, acclaimed chef and owner of eight restaurants in Philadelphia, and four more in Chicago and Scottsdale, Ariz. is set to open the doors to three highly anticipated restaurants at Revel.
Back in January 2009, Revel Entertainment felt the recession crunch and was forced to lay off part of its construction crew, halting progress on the interior of its nearly $2 billion north-end Boardwalk casino project and limiting progress to the building’s exterior alone.
