Marc Forgione Planning a Giant Steakhouse for Atlantic City

By
He's probably toasting with something harder right now.

If it's seemed sure that one of these days Iron Chef Marc Forgione would have to go and open a second restaurant, well, it appears the toque has been waiting for the big one: an 11,000-square-foot steakhouse, to be precise. Grub learns that American Cut will go in at the upcoming Atlantic City resort Revel and that the name is a nod to Forgione's dad Larry's vaunted former restaurant, an American Place. The behemoth is expected this spring and will boast 500 wines, private dining areas, a raw bar, and a "grand meat bar," whatever that means. Forgione will bring the greatest hits from his Tribeca eatery to the A.C., so diners flush from the casinos can dig into a surf-and-turf of the toque's signature chili lobster with a 48-ounce, 28-day-aged Tomahawk rib eye, or, in case of bad luck, a comforting chicken under a brick for two.
