ATLANTIC CITY — This spring, chef Marc Forgione (winner of Season Three of the Food Network series Iron Chef) will join Revel — the forthcoming 6.3-million-square-foot beachfront resort set to debut in May — with the opening of the restaurant American Cut. The announcement was recently made by Revel in partnership with LDV Hospitality, a leading hospitality group headquartered in New York City, and marks chef Forgione’s first restaurant outside of his eponymously named establishment in New York City.
American Cut will pair chef Forgione’s award-winning, modern and signature take on fine dining with the comforts of the new American steakhouse. “American Cut gives me the opportunity to redefine and reset the bar for the American steakhouse experience,” says Forgione in a media release.
The name American Cut is a nod to Marc’s father, chef Larry Forgione, whose iconic New York City restaurant was called An American Place.
The Revel restaurant will feature approximately 300 seats in 11,000 square feet, an energetic lounge, a grand meat bar and seafood raw bar, two private dining areas and a lively main dining room with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean, and a custom-made wine display showcasing an extensive bottle selection and running the entire length of the dining room. American Cut will also feature a private dining room fit for up to 60 people.
When completed, Revel will be a complete entertainment destination encompassing more than a dozen other restaurants, three nightclubs, a private beach club, more than 1,800 guest rooms, retail shops, a 31,000 square-foot spa, two theaters that seat 5,500 and 500 guests respectively and a 150,000-square-foot casino. It will bring together offerings designed by top performers in daylife, nightlife, theatrical, spa, and experiential programming. Go here for more.
