We'll be coming to Atlantic City from DC spending 2 nights at the Borgata (a Monday - Wednesday trip). One night we'll be doing their "Up All Night" package, which includes 2 tix to a comedy club, 2 drinks, and the Borgata Buffet dinner for two. The other night we're doing the "Wake Up Smiling" package with breakfast at the Borgata Buffet.
A few questions:
1. Any comments on the Borgata Buffet itself for Breakfast and Dinner? (We haven't finalized the pacakges yet so if the buffet offerings are just so-so, we might change our plan.) We LOVED the buffet at the Bellagio, for comparison's sake.
2. Can you AC Chowhounds provide suggestions for another place for a nice dinner the night we won't have the buffet? We'll probably want to end up staying at the hotel itself, but might consider meandering over to the Pier or to the Tropicana. (We will have a car.) I've read on the boards some pros and cons for Sea Catch and Bobby Flay's and am curious what the latest thoughts on those are. We like trendy but want something upscale as we are celebrating my husband's new job.
3. Any feedback on Brulee (the dessert place)? I saw a story on the Food Network about it a while back and am curious if anyone's been and if it's worth it. That might be a nice way to celebrate since my husband is a sugar addict!
Thanks in advance for your help!
