Food Network champion Chef Deb Pellegrino joins other top chefs at charity preview event Feb. 28
Harrah’s Resorts executive pastry chef, Deborah Pellegrino, has announced she will provide her own desserts for “A Taste of Atlantic City Restaurant Week.” The exclusive preview event takes place Tuesday, Feb. 28, from 6:30 to 8:30pm, at the Atlantic City Country Club.
The limited-ticket event will offer a VIP preview of some of the restaurants that are participating in Atlantic City Restaurant Week March 4-10. Restaurant Week features some of the top area restaurants offering special menus with a prix fixe price of $33.12 for dinner and $15.12 for lunch. The preview event at the Atlantic City Country Club will raise funds for area charities. Only 300 tickets will be sold, at $35.00 each. Tickets are available only online.
The ticket price includes the tasting and music by the 6-piece Entourage Band. There will be a cash bar. The restaurants will serve some items that will be included on their special Restaurant Week menus, as well as specialties from their regular menus.
Chef Pellagrino, a graduate of the Academy of Culinary Arts in at Atlantic Cape Community College, won the Food Network’s “Chocolate Myths” competition last July on the Food Network® Challenge TV show. She combines an art background with pastry baking to create whimsical desserts that have an uncanny resemblance to other items, such as pastries made to look like elegant evening bags.
One hundred percent of proceeds from the Restaurant Week preview will benefit the Community FoodBank of NJ/Southern Branch, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates), Alcove of Atlantic County and the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority Foundation.
The event is sponsored by Atlantic City Country Club (Presenting Sponsor) and the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority, producers of Atlantic City Restaurant Week. Advance ticket purchases are recommended due to the limited number available; tickets sold at the door will be limited to the balance of tickets not sold in advance.
If you’ve been meaning to meander over to the Tropicana to sample any — or many — of its extensive ensemble of eateries, Sunday through Thursday, Oct. 28 through Nov. 1, might be the perfect time to do it.
...the highlight of this visit was an entree combination of lamb chop and rib. The thick chop was served mid-rare, with just a hint of a pink center. Crusted with almond, the rib was nothing short of transcendent.
Are you prepared to explore the finest foods, and restaurants, our region has to offer? We hope so, because Atlantic City Restaurant Week — presented by the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority — looms just ahead on the calendar.
I love Atlantic City Restaurant Week. As someone on a budget, I rarely indulge in dining out, which is a crying shame since there are so many outstanding dining options in the region. However, when Restaurant Week rolls around, I take advantage of the outstanding fixed price of $33.11 for dinner and $15.11 for lunch.
Poised to celebrate its second birthday, Atlantic City’s Restaurant Week — Sunday, Feb. 28 through Saturday, March 6 — has quickly matured into a precocious, hotly anticipated event. Managed through the auspices of the Atlantic City Convention and Visitors Authority (ACCVA), participants run a wide gamut of cuisines, styles and price points. They also provide the dining public opportunities to sample both lunch and dinner at many regional establishments. The last element of the equation are manageable prix fixe charges: $15.10 lunches and $33.10 dinners.
After enjoying Atlantic City Restaurant Week last year, there was no doubt I planned to seek out another great meal at an excellent price during this year’s special culinary event.
