ATLANTIC CITY — Acclaimed chef Jose Garces hosted a media event on Thursday, May 10, to formally introduce his latest Atlantic City restaurant Amada — also the namesake of the first of eight restaurants he opened in Philadelphia.

Amada is one of three Garces-owned establishments at Revel, the other two being Village Whiskey (a pub with signature burgers and over six dozen brands of bourbon), and Distrito Cantina (a festive margarita bar with a selection of 100 tequilas, modern Mexican street food and tacos from a Guapos take-out window). The three are incorporated into a Garces Group that owns or operates 16 restaurants in several states.
Amada is a tapas or “small plates” restaurant specializing in traditional and somewhat unusual Spanish fare. Amada’s main dining room offers panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, and much of the produce used in the recipes is homegrown by chef Garces on a 40-acre farm in suburban Philadelphia.
