How many of you are feverishly trying to shovel in every fatty food imaginable before starting  your New Year’s diet at the beginning of January? We know we are! And apparently so is mostly everyone hitting the Atlantic City dining outlets at our properties. So much so in fact, that an official list was just released of “Atlantic City’s Most Indulgent Food Offerings” to get in your tummy before you start that diet! Some of our faves ruled the rankings, so we are going to share them with you.

8. Super Nacho Higante from Worship Surf Bar at Showboat Atlantic City.

Remember this one? This baby is over 56 ounces of nacho chips, salsa, cheese sauce, jalapeño peppers, shredded cheddar cheese and chopped cilantro. And if you or someone you know is able to eat this whole load during half time of your favorite NFL game, you obviously get the dish for free AND two free tickets to a show at House Of Blues Atlantic City. This whole, long-winded contest we just described is appropriate called Halftime Challenge. Good luck and may the eating gods be with you!

 

7. The Devil Made me Do It from Phillips Seafood at The Pier Shops at Caesars Atlantic City

The Devil Made Me Do It

Does this just look like a regular sundae to you? Well it’s not. Because it’s freakin’ two pounds.  Two pounds of decadent, warm and chewy chocolate brownie doused with rich vanilla ice cream, luscious white chocolate drizzle, hot fudge, whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Seriously. How can that not be good? It’s addicting. We’ve tried it. All two lbs of it. Hot fudge sundae on steroids, ya’ll.

 

4. S’more Pancakes from Sammy D’s at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City

S'more Pancakes

Do we really need to say more? Where else can you get S’more pancakes? Chocolate chip pancakes are all over the place. But not S’mores. If you fancy Sammy’s Buttermilk pancakes, try these with a twist. Why NOT add some marshmallows, chocolate chips and graham crackers to them? Why not? It will surely taste good. Get in there for breakfast (7 a.m. to noon) and get a batch…or two!

 

2. Banana Bread French Toast Sundae at The Reserve at Bally’s Atlantic City

Banana Bread French Toast

Who even thinks of making french toast with dessert-type bread?! Let alone adding vanilla gelato, chocolate ganache, cinnamon, sugar, roasted pineapple, glazed banana and walnut amoretti crumbles to it?! Chef Muldoon at The Reserve, that’s who! Isn’t this genius? We are telling you, it’s like nothing you’ve ever tasted before. What an explosion of flavors and a totally right-on-the-money-choice for the #2 spot.

Anyway, check out the rest of the list (including the #1 high cal selection) below created by our amazingly witty PR department. They are not duds.

 

WITH THAT NEW YEAR DIET RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER – HERE’S A COUNT DOWN TO ATLANTIC CITY’S MOST INDULGENT FOOD OFFERINGS

 

Caesars Entertainment Atlantic City Offers Up Sandwiches, Snacks-Foods, and Loaded Dishes that will have Guests Salivating Well into 2013

 

 

Atlantic City, NJ (December, 27, 2012) – As the ball drops on to a new year, so too does most American’s daily caloric intake, with the number one New Year’s resolution being to lose weight.  With New Year’s Eve falling on a Monday, this gives an entire week to let your bad self out with the most decadent desserts and enticing entrees on the East Coast. So before you make a pledge to shed some pounds make sure you brace your stomach for a night out on the town where calories are king – give yourself another week of indulgence and start that New Year’s resolution on Monday, January 7.  And for those of you who already have a balance between indulgence and working out, treat yourself throughout the year and try one of these tasty delights once a week/month in 2013.

 

10. Five Pound Lobster Tail (Atlantic Grill at Caesars) – Any seafood lover will tell you that there isn’t a better experience on the planet then dipping a succulent, juicy lobster tail in cup of hot drawn butter, but what happens when your lobster tail is too big to fit or if it is so heavy it causes a drawn-butter tidal wave?  Guests dining at the Atlantic Grill are extremely pleased to have that issue, as the restaurant known for serving up the freshest catches the ocean has to offer features a five-pound lobster tail that looks less like food and more like a sea monster.  Earlier in the year, a humongous 21-pound lobster was caught off the coast of Cape Cod Massachusetts. No word yet if Chef Matt Donovan of the Atlantic Grill is eyeing it up as a new special.

 

9.  Pizza Fondue (Sammy D’s at Harrah’s Resort) – Fondue was all the rage back in the early seventies. Well, break out those disco platforms shoes because Sammy D’s modern spin on this classic is turning Atlantic City into “Funky Town”.  Melted cheese alone is pretty good, now combine it with pepperoni and tomato sauce, then serve its contents in a pot, and what you have essentially created is a bowl of pizza soup. Now replace the spoon as the meal’s utensil with a crispy cheese cannelloni stick and you’ve achieved utter euphoria.

 

8. Super Nacho Higante (Worship Surf Club at Showboat) – Now coming to the table, weighing in at over 56oz and hailing from Mexico, your opponent SUPER NACHO HIGANTE!!! The mammoth is comprised of nacho chips, pico (salsa), cheese sauce, jalapeño peppers, shredded cheddar cheese, and chopped cilantro making it the perfect food fiesta.  The titanic tower, known for dwarfing normal nachos, can be had for free. How, do you say? Simple, just finish the entire plate during the halftime of a football game and there you go – it’s on the house. Sound easy? Afraid not! This is a challenge that’s sure to give its competitors the carb chills.

 

7.  The Devil Made Me Do It (Phillips Seafood at The Pier Shops at Caesars) – Funny that this saying has stuck since the seventies when it became the popular catchphrase of the outrageous Geraldine Jones from The Flip Wilson Show. Geraldine usually uttered these words after dropping way too many pretty pennies on some unnecessary additions to her wardrobe, but gluttony comes to mind after eyeing the delicious dessert that holds the name at Philliips Seafood. Guests are welcomed to overindulge in two pounds of warm chocolate brownie smothered with classic vanilla ice cream, gooey white chocolate drizzle, whipped cream and chocolate shavings. It’s the bigger and better hot fudge sundae, and it’s okay. ‘Cause the Devil made you do it.

 

6. Cajun Tempura Battered Flounder Sandwich (Harry’s Oyster Bar and Seafood Restaurant at Bally’s) – It’s no fluke that this mouth-watering sea-sandwich makes our list. Steps: Take the day’s freshest catch, dredge in flower, dip in egg-binding-wash, encase in crispy panko breadcrumbs, deep-dive in the fryer, place world’s tiniest potato buns around and serve.  This sandwich is so big it not only covers the bread it sits on, but the plate it’s served on.  Think of the brontosaurus rack so huge that it flips over Fred’s car in the opening credits of The Flintstones, now replace that with a Flounder and you’ve got Harry’s signature sandwich.

 

5.  Strawberry Balsamic Gelato (Café Tazza at Caesars) – Okay, there’s an old Italian saying, “If it works in a salad, it works in anything.” Alright, that might not be an actual Italian saying, but it has to be what the creators at Café Tazza were thinking when they premiered their Strawberry Balsamic Gelato.  A bunch of Strawberry tart cut with a bite of acidity makes this a must-order at any time of the day. And for those who are unfamiliar with Gelato, think of it as ice cream’s suave, richer cousin that drives a Ferrari and has hair like Fabio.

 

4.  S’more Pancakes (Sammy D’s at Harrah’s Resort) – Doesn’t that last bite of pancake always come too soon? Don’t you wish you could have some more? You can at Sammy D’s as the breakfast menu literally boasts S’mores Pancakes. That’s right, those gooey treats said to be invented by the Girl Scouts; marshmallow, chocolate chips and graham crackers, all atop a classic buttermilk stack. Say some-more-S’mores ten times fast and you have the world’s tastiest tongue twister, literally.  Warning – Do not try and add pancakes to your next S’more campfire roast, only a licensed pancake professional like Sammy D should attempt. Plus, it would probably fall off your stick, thus creating a gooey mess and one angry park ranger.

 

3. Smithfield Char Grilled Double Cut Pork Chop (The Atlantic City Country Club) – The Country Club’s Executive Chef, Ed Daggers, has cooked for celebrities, athletes, and even for royalty (cough) Sultan of Brunei, so it’s no wonder he makes our list with a little down-home southern cooking. “You had me at Double Cut Pork Chop,” sounds as though it should have been a famous movie line, but alas, it’s not. It is however paired with a molasses-ginger BBQ sauce so good that you won’t just be licking your own fingers, you’ll be licking the fingers at everyone sitting at your table!  And Chef Ed takes applesauce to a new level with his stewed Granny Smith apple and dried cherry compote. Add some Whipped Sweet Potatoes to complete the meal and now all you need is a golf-cart to get you back to your car.

 

2. Banana Bread French Toast Sundae (The Reserve at Bally’s) – What could be better than the choice of two, sweet breakfast treats to start off your day? When they are combined and eaten for dinner…or after dinner, whatever your preference! Known more for creating a fabulous steak and seafood menu, Chef Joseph Muldoon shows that he can do a whole lot more than surf and turf. The King of The Reserve dessert menu, this banana bread French toast is decorated with vanilla gelato, chocolate ganache, cinnamon, sugar, roasted pineapple, glazed banana and walnut amoretti crumbles. Everything that makes up the most important meal of the day and more!

 

1. Pizza “Tartuffo (Mia Restaurant at Caesars) – America’s favorite pastime should really be eating pizza, sorry baseball. With over 350 slices being eaten every second, that argument carries some weight. Also carrying a bit a weight is Chef Chris Scarduzio’s monstrous pizza masterpiece topped with forest mushrooms, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, fresh-seasonal truffles, lobster, and melted foie gras.  Did someone just say truffles, lobster and melted goose-liver on a pizza?! No, you are not hallucinating from the forest mushrooms. This lavish delight is Mia restaurant’s richest pie, and at $75, it is Mia restaurant’s richest pie.
