It looks like Revel isn’t the only Atlantic City casino and resort that’s bringing in the celebrity chefs. This morning Showboat sent word that its House of Blues Restaurant will be Crossroads at House of Blues, a new venture from Food Network favorite Arron Sanchez when it reopens Saturday. It’s another of the 15 Crossroads concepts that he’s helped HOB open in the past year. According to the prepared statement Showboat sent, the restaurant serves as Sanchez’s “tribute to the sights, sounds and tastes of every corner of America.” So, don’t expect a repeat of the regional Mexican riffs that served as Sanchez’s launchpad at his Manhattan-based Centrico.
But based on preliminary menu deets, don’t expect the usual casino buffet and food court fare either. There’s ribs, citrus-marinated tacos with Cotija cheese and roasted tomatillo salsa, lobster mac and cheese, Jamaican-spiced turkey burgers and a ton of other stuff on offer.
Crossroads at House of Blues, 801 Boardwalk, Atlantic City, NJ (609) 343-4000
