Ocean Casino Resort is the premier destination to kick off your Cinco de Mayo celebration in Atlantic City.
If any chef in Atlantic City knows what type of cuisine truly represents Cinco de Mayo, it’s the man behind Distrito, Chef Jose Garces. The restaurant already celebrates the dynamic culture and the stellar cuisine of Mexico City regularly, but Chef Garces is elevating that even higher to craft the perfect Cinco de Mayo menu. This year’s offerings include a unique Swordfish Taco alongside a vibrant Angry Red Cabbage. Both Pico de Gallo and Chilli Crema are included in this year’s offerings as well.
Amada is one of Chef Garces’ other locations within the Ocean Casino Resort, and the Spanish ambiance alongside picture-perfect Mediterranean details make it a stunning location to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. This year, Amada is offering a uniquely delicious Pernil Empanada (Amada’s take on the standard pulled-pork empanada) alongside a perfectly prepared Artichoke Escabeche.
Harper’s is the go-to brunch spot at the resort, and the skyline views and succulent gardens are the perfect locale to enjoy Cinco de Mayo brunch. Harper’s offering this year features Iberico Chorizo Frittata with Shaved Manchego, along with Baby Kale & smooth Piquillo Crema. Of course, any visit to Harper’s is not complete without their signature French press coffee.
