It’s just a little over 24 hours since Caesars Entertainment announced that award-winning Chef Guy Fieri will take up residence at Bally’s Atlantic City. And now comes the news that there will be two more new great eateries coming to Atlantic City: Buca di Beppo and Martorano’s.

Buca di Beppo will be moving into Bally’s. It will be open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and serve up delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners for its guests. One of Buca di Beppo’s specialties is a $20 antipasto bar at dinner, filled with fresh anchovies, Tuscan kale, roasted beets, sliced prosciutto, sopressata and more. Buca di Beppo at Bally’s will also be serving up its famous half-pound meatballs made from the highest quality ingredients and slow-cooked in a fresh marinara sauce.

“Steeped in authentic Italian tradition, Buca di Beppo not only delivers classic old-world flavors, but also serves each dish family-style, an inviting feature which we feel will resonate with our Bally’s customers,” said Kevin Ortzman, President for Bally’s, Caesars, and Showboat Atlantic City. “Bally’s 6th floor has long been considered the casual gourmet leader, and now it will have an additional consideration as the gateway to true Italian cuisine.”

And not to be outdone, Harrah’s Resort will be featuring Martorano’s, with famed culinary aficionado and Philadelphia native Steve Martorano at its helm. This fourth restaurant in the Martorano’s brand will feature such favorites as Martorano’s signature eggplant stack, South Philly cheesesteak, Bucatini Carbonara and the world famous homemade meatballs enjoyed by such celebrities as Al Pacino and Jimmy Kimmel.

“I was a big fan of Steve Martorano during my time in Vegas and cannot wait for him to bring his style and passion to Harrah’s Resort’s culinary family,” said Rick Mazer, Regional President of Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City. “Martorano’s will be a restaurant devoted to classic Italian dishes. Oversized meatballs smothered in red gravy will dominate the menu, but done in a manner that only Steve can.”

Martorano’s will also boast the nightclub-like atmosphere found at the Ft. Lauderdale and Las Vegas locations, complete with a dance floor and live DJs. There will be tunes from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Bobby Darin. However, as the night progresses, the tunes will ramp up into R&B, disco, soul, hip hop and classic rock.

“People who know me well know that I do things only one way – and that’s big!” joked Steve Martorano. “With a vibrant nightlife scene in place and a little something for everyone, Harrah’s Resort is the ideal fit for the launch of my fourth restaurant.”
