Resorts introduces tapas bar menu at Capriccio
Resorts’ classic Italian restaurant, Capriccio, has just introduced a new tapas menu. The term comes from Spain and refers to small plates served as appetizers, usually paired with wines and other spirits.
“We are looking for ways to enhance the guest experience here at Resorts,” explains Mark Sachais, vice president of hotel operations for Resorts. “Capriccio has been here at Resorts since the beginning and we are in the process of making it more fun and reasonably priced.”
The new tapas menu ranges in price from $12-$15. It is based on some popular Capriccio dishes, but adds a few twists including the Ossobuco Sliders with pickled onion and roasted peppers, Asparagi Parmigianino, lightly breaded sautéed asparagus topped with melted mozzarella and fresh tomatoes and Calamari Fritti, lightly coated crispy fried calamari with a pepperocinni butter sauce.
New additions including Grilled Margarita Pizza, Gnocchi Con Salsiccia E Rapini, Gnocchi with ground sausage, broccoli rabe, roasted peppers and mushrooms in garlic cream, Scampi Arrosta, Pesto marinated shrimp dusted in seasoned breadcrumbs oven roasted with lemon and Romano cheese, and Fried Meatballs with Provolone.
In addition to the new tapas menu, The Bar at Capriccio will now be featuring red and white wine flights ranging from $16 to $21, new wines by the glass and has added Italian beers Peroni Nastro Azzurro and Birra Moretti Premium Lager that can be paired with the new tapas menu.
Capriccio’s tapas menu is available at the bar during regular dining hours. Current winter hours are Thurs.–Sat., 6-11pm. The Bar at Capriccio also features music by pianist Lisa Tee Friday and Saturday nights.
With large modern buildings and flashy lights, Atlantic City doesn’t seem to have the overall needed ingredients for a good haunting. However, some visitors of Atlantic City’s first legalized gaming venue, Resorts Casino Hotel, would tend to say otherwise.
During the grand opening of Resorts Casino took place on May 27, Dennis Gomes, Joe Piscopo and Mayor Lorenzo Langford announced that several exciting attractions will be coming to Atlantic City’s newest resort.
It’s got all the elements you’d expect from one of Atlantic City’s hottest nightclubs: the loud and pulsating rhythms of popular songs, a swirling light show and, perhaps the most essential ingredient, a frenetic and sweaty energy that never quits.
