Dine Like a Local: Anytime Itinerary

March 20, 2008


Boardwalk - Sunrise

Like most of us, nothing beats experiencing a destination like seeing it through the eyes of a local.

Particularly where to eat.


Breakfast: Without a doubt, you’re going to want to go to Gilchrist. With Atlantic City locations at Gardner’s Basin and Tropicana, the menu at Gilchrist is more than just palate pleasing….it won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Located between South Carolina and Tennessee Avenues, Perry’s Café & Deli is another great spot for amazing food with reasonable prices.

Whether it be a cozy breakfast in a narrow nook at Maria’s Luncheonette in Ducktown or a homey chain eatery like Café by Country Kitchen on the Boardwalk, Atlantic City knows how to handle the early morning hunger blues.


Lunch:  From a food truck serving fried catfish to a Cajun restaurant serving gator bites and not to mention our world famous sub shop, Atlantic City’s eclectic choice of dining options will leave you nothing but satisfied.  Below is just the short list:

Fishhead’s Food Truck
White House Sub Shop
Back Bay Ale House
Los Amigos
Pho Sydney


Dinner: Hopefully, you have taken advantage of some of the many wonderful things there are to do in Atlantic City and now it’s dinner time.  Whether it’s the dinner to whine down your night or the one to turn it up, we are here for you.  For tasty seafood and steak, check out Dock’s Oyster House -- an Atlantic City staple since 1897. Do you have a taste for Italian?  Your choice is sweet: Angelo’s Fairmount Tavern, Girasole Ristorante, Angeloni’s Restaurant and if you’re lucky…Chef Vola’s.  If you love soul food or would love to try it, Kelsey’s is just what you are looking for.
