Cleveland cook Michael Symon — restaurateur, TV personality, cookbook author, James Beard Award winner, and staunch defender of meat — announced this morning that he’ll open an Italian grill late subsequent year during Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City, New Jersey. “This is a food we grew adult eating — my Sicilian grandmother would be proud,” Symon pronounced in a release. “[Authentic Italian] is what we baked in my early career and still what we like to make during home.”
Planned for tumble 2016, a unnamed grill will join an endless choice of eateries from high-profile total including Symon’s associate Iron Chefs Bobby Flay and Geoffrey Zakarian, Wolfgang Puck, Michael Schulson, and Greg and Marc Sherry. Becky Schultz, Vice President of Food Beverage for a hotel casino, said, “We are anxious to move Michael Symon to Borgata with a entrance of his initial Italian restaurant.”
A celebrity-studded register isn’t a usually thing Borgata is famous for. Last year, a server during a hotel casino’s Bobby Flay Steak allegedly misinformed a diner about a cost of a $3,750 bottle of wine, describing a cost with a obscure tenure “thirty-seven fifty.” And early this year, a casino defended itself opposite accusations of racism after a Metropolitan grill served a essence food-themed dish in respect of Martin Luther King, Jr. Menu equipment enclosed boiled duck and collard greens, that a grill explained “were among King’s favorite foods, as documented in countless chronological sources.”
Symon, meanwhile, recently opened a opposite service-only burger spot in an Urban Outfitters in Austin, and he’s anticipating to launch Mabel’s BBQ in Cleveland next month after serious delays set it behind over a year. His lofty idea during Mabel’s is to invent a new informal grill character centered around Cleveland’s Eastern European influences — consider kielbasa and sauerkraut — with a brownish-red mustard-based sauce.
