Foundation Room Reveals New Tapas Menu
ATLANTIC CITY — On Friday night, Dec. 2, the House of Blue’s Foundation Room introduced an all-new tapas-style menu to complement the recent announcement that the elegantly adorned venue — for a long time a member’s only club at House of Blues — is open to the public every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 6-10pm for dining, from 10pm-1am for a unique nightclub atmosphere, and from 1-6am every Saturday for an “After Hours” nightlife vibe.
The new tapas menu was unveiled during a media event Friday evening. For a video of the event, click here.
“The menu, the room and the experience we provide here is unmatched in Atlantic City,” says Mark Tricano, vice president and assistant general manager for Caesars Entertainment. “We have wonderful views of the Atlantic Ocean, we have a menu featuring tapas-style items that provide a more social setting for people who choose to dine with us. We’re open to the public so come on out and give us a try.”
Eight new eclectic, tapas-style items were introduced by Foundation Room chef Dave Suscavage, including tuna tartar, a bacon-wrapped date served atop a mini hibachi grill, dim sum (Chinese food prepared in bite-sized portions that included roast pork, vegetable and potato-truffle dumplings), vegetable samosa (a vegetarian dish popular in India), Chilean sea bass, a four-ounce cedar salmon filet, a trio of beef tournedos, and Manchego vegetarian triangles topped with spicy olives.
“We wanted to kind of break the barrier of the typical three- and four-course meal so you can come in and enjoy yourself and order single courses as you want them,” says Suscavage. “They’re priced so that guests can have two or three of them for a meal. We’re actually working on developing this concept a little more.”
