Another week, another chance to fill up your 50 Bites+ lanyard.
Options — if you’ve been following our suggested route — are diverse this week, to say the least. From exotic ethnic foods to your basic cheese and crackers, this week features something for any appetite, on any day of the week. Here goes nothing.
We begin at the iconic Tony’s Baltimore Grill for — not just a “Bite” — but an entire slice of their famous pepperoni pizza. They’re no slouches over at TBG.
After that, we head to the neighboring Tropicana Atlantic City, which houses several spots participating in 50 Bites+. Start at A Dam Good Sports Bar for some bacon-wrapped jalapeno shrimp. There’s a real bite in this Bite!
Move to everybody’s favorite family-style restaurant Carmine’s, where their famed meatball will be the perfect comfort food to coat your tummy while you sip on one of their fabulous martinis. Relative new kid on the block, Chelsea Five Gastropub, offers its rich and creamy lobster bisque another good tummy coater.
Time to grab a brew over at Chickie’s and Pete’s, which will help wash down some killer mussels in red sauce. Cuba Libre is next up, presenting lanyard holders with its light and flavorful tuna ceviche.
No stomach for ceviche? No problem. Firewaters has some pepperoni and cheddar cheese with plain crackers for those less adventurous Biters. And everybody can stomach wings, which is what’s being served at Hooters.
Finish Trop up with two of Jose Garces’ spots: Olon and Okatshe. The former is serving shrimp ceviche and the latter, chashu buns, a savory mix of pork belly, hoisin and daikan.
Moving south in A.C., make a stop at The Iron Room for more pork belly, which is the topping of choice for its deviled egg. Then end your week at the Wonder Bar for its amazing Philly cheesesteak spring roll.
