Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s signature contemporary grill concept, American Bar & Grille, has released a new seasonal menu inspired by fall’s festival of warm colors, changing leaves, and cooler temperatures. The restaurant’s American cuisine offers classic grill favorites focusing on seasonality and globally influenced flavors.
“Fall is an opportunity to recreate signature dishes while introducing new selections and recipes depictive of this time of the year,” said American Bar & Grille Executive Chef Aram Mardigian. “Ingredients featured throughout the menu include apples, pears, pumpkins, root vegetables, and mushrooms, as well as spices and herbs like sage, cinnamon, and ginger. We designed each dish with flavor combinations that create an enhanced decadence and epicurean journey through the season.”
Highlights of the fall menu include:
- American Cheese Board, served with warm ciabatta and fruit mustard.
- Bigeye Tuna Crudo, topped with cucumbers, radish, green apple, and garlic chili ponzu.
- Pumpkin Soup, accented with marshmallow cream.
- Butter Lettuce Salad, prepared with pears, walnuts, blue cheese, and pomegranate seeds.
- Wild Mushroom Pizza, handmade with basil pesto, roasted garlic, and three cheeses.
- Flavorful sides such as Crispy Brussel Sprouts and Bourbon and Honey Glazed Carrots.
New to the restaurant’s House Specialties section is a savory Rigatoni “All Amatriciana,” made with spicy tomato sauce, guanciale, and ricotta. Additional hearty main entrees are as follows:
- 16-ounce New York Strip Steak, served with Argentinian chimichurri.
- Double-Cut Pork Chop, dressed with caramelized apples, saba, and pomegranate.
- Wild Atlantic Cod, resting in a lobster butter sauce and fennel salad accompaniment.
