Last Minute Anniversary Reservation

Recommended Posts

Realizing that its my wedding anniversary this weekend, I'm in a rush to make a restaurant reservation. Living in Monmouth County, the thought is to go to one of the new restaurants in Atlantic City. I've been itching to try Michael Mina's place in the Borgota - Sea Blue. However, a friend in the restaurant business tells me the decor in the place is pretty cold (blue theme through out) and the service is not up to par. Has anyone been? Other recommendations in AC? Buddakan at the Pier sounds fun however I wasn't thinking that it was "fancy" enough for an anniversary dinner. All help truly appreciated.

Go to Dock's Oyster house.

Restaurant Nicholas and sit at the bar.

Just ate in the chef's table a month ago. No offense but no matter how nice the place, I would never sit at the bar for my anniversary dinner (we have eaten at the bar on other occassions). Instead we are considering David Drake. A lot closer to home and probably a nicer atmosphere than Sea Blue.

I haven't been to the Fromagerie since David Burke took over but it could be worth a shot...

Taboni - I did think about the Fromagerie however, we ate at DB & Donatella not to long ago, and from the looks at the Fromagerie's website, the menus appear exactly the same. We wanted something different for this dinner. Thanks for the advice.

David Drakes is fabulous. My husband and I are going on Monday for our birthdays and are really looking forward to it, even though we were just there a couple of weeks ago.

The food, the atmosphere and the service have been top notch every time we have been there.

They are closed on Sunday and definitely in need of a reservation for Saturday.
