Just a short ride from Atlantic City lies the Pomona Golf & Country Club. And on Thursday night, May 15, Chef Robert Irvine will work his culinary magic on the country club as he films an episode of of his mega-hit show “Restaurant Impossible.”
Rumors have been running rampant that this “might” happen, but now it’s a definite. Chef Robert let the cat out of the bag in a tweet on Tuesday. “On my way to Egg Harbor, NJ to help save the Pomona Golf & Country Club. This is our first country club on ‘Restaurant:Impossible.’ Should be a very interesting challenge.”
And if you needed more, this note appeared on Chef Robert’s Facebook page.
“’Restaurant Impossible’ will be taping at Pomona Golf & Country Club. There will be a grand re-opening on Thursday, May 15 at 7 p.m. The general public can call to make reservations for the night by calling Pomona Golf & Country Club at 609-965-3232.”
You can try the number, but I've heard either it doesn't answer or they’re sold out. I’m guessing they’re sold out. The date of the episode is unknown right now, but it will air sometime this summer.
Chef Robert Irvine is very familiar face in the Atlantic City area. He worked his culinary magic at both Caesars and Trump Taj Mahal before becoming a household name on TV. He’s also the big kahuna chef at the Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival, coming again July 25 – 29. This year, he’ll be joined by Chef Marcus Samuelsson and others.
This is the sixth year for the Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival, Atlantic City’s hottest summer event brought to you by Caesars Entertainment. Something new this year is that all events will be held outside. Do NOT miss the fabulous Beach Soirée!
And although you may not get to see Chef Robert at Pomona Golf & Country Club due to the sold out nature of the event, you can still get tickets for the Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival in July. They are available right now at the festival site HERE or by calling Ticketmaster at 800-736-1420. (You can also find a full schedule of events on the web site.)
