One of the simplest and most beloved of all seafood dishes is the lobster roll. The culinary equivalent to a millionaire stumbling around in a ripped undershirt, this dish pairs the hoity pretentiousness of lobster with the less-refined simplicity of a hot dog bun and somehow comes up with a…
Atlantic City has hundreds of restaurants.
Week 4: Oyster Creek Inn
Mannino’s Cannoli Express was a South Jersey food truck that was so popular it was ranked among the top 100 food trucks nationwide by The Daily Meal. But a few weeks ago it opened up a brick-and-mortar store in Downtown Hammonton — just in time for National Cannoli Day on Saturday, June 16.
Bandanas Mexican Grille is a bit of an anomaly. Part Tex-Mex restaurant, part ice cream parlor, with a commitment to ocean sustainability, Bandanas in Wildwood Crest has taken two totally different dining concepts and fused them together.

Few national holidays are as big as June 4, National Cheese Day, which falls on a Monday this year. While some may choose to celebrate with a specialty grilled cheese from Grilled Cheese & Crab Cake Co., a cheesy pasta from Assaggio! or maybe a burger slathered in mac ‘n cheese from Jose…
Summertime is here, and according to ’90s reggae punkers Sublime, the living is apparently now “easy.” What’s not always so easy, however is finding new spots to stuff your face. Sure, you could hit up the classics and the old standbys, but with so many brand spanking new restaurants, beer h…
We just spent an incredible Saturday at Golden Nugget for our sister publication Atlantic City Weekly’s annual Burger Bash competition, where local restaurants went head-to-head to see who is king of the burger.
“My food is so simple anyone can cook it,” says SeaSalt Chef Lulzim Rexhepi somewhat unbelievably. Unbelievable because Rexhepi, who goes by the affectionate nickname Chef Lu, is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, with years spent cultivating his craft in the New York dining sc…
The third Friday in May is widely regarded as National Pizza Party Day, which falls this year on May 18. As per usual, with these wacky, weekly holidays, there are many ways to celebrate. Certainly, you could order one for delivery or make a pie yourself, but it almost certainly won’t turn o…
