Three new Jose Garces-led restaurants will open in Atlantic City in early March, expanding the former Iron Chef's imprint on the Shore resort.
Seafood will be heavily featured in the three distinct eateries set to open on March 3 in the Tropicana Atlantic City casino and hotel.
Formerly the Fin, Tropicana's oceanfront restaurant space will become Olon Restaurante. A fine-dining establishment, Olon will have a raw seafood bar, or cevicheria, and a menu that offers fresh seafood dishes. It plans to participate during lunch in Atlantic City's restaurant week, which begins March 5. Named for a city in Ecuador, Olon will also have two private dining rooms.
Two other establishments – La Cerveceria and Okatshe – will both have sushi.
Okatshe, a Japanese sake and noodle bar, will be open nightly beginning at 4 p.m. Aside from its menu of sushi and noodle dishes, it will also give diners a chance to try unique sweets. Okatshe – which translates to the Japanese word for sweets – will have a candy store at its entrance, all part of the decor's take on a Japanese streetscape.
