The Borgata Hotel & Casino in Atlantic City is already known for its top notch entertainment and luxurious accommodations. But, now the they’re about to get a little more delicious. It was just revealed that Iron Chef Michael Symon will be added to their fine dining roster.

With the anticipated fall 2016 debut of his new Borgata signature restaurant, Symon joins fellow Iron Chefs Bobby Flay and Geoffrey Zakarian, as well as legendary chef Wolfgang Puck in an unprecedented and star-studded culinary lineup. More than that, it will be his first Italian concept.

“We are thrilled to bring Michael Symon to Borgata with the debut of his first Italian restaurant,” said Becky Schultz, Vice President of Food & Beverage for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. “Equally famous for his soulful cooking and joyful personality, Chef Symon is recognized among the best in the country and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome him into our culinary family.”

Growing up with Greek and Sicilian influences, we can certainly expect some boldly flavored, deeply satisfying dishes at The Chew star’s new joint. “We’re excited to bring our Italian cooking to Atlantic City,” said Symon. “This is the food I grew up eating–my Sicilian grandmother would be proud! Authentic Italian is very simple; it’s all about great ingredients. It’s what I cooked in my early career and still what I like to make at home.”
