Jersey Shore Fact of the Day 39: Two Atlantic City Classics Team Up with Casinos

I've started doing media interviews in connection to the book, and the first question every asks is: What's new down the shore this year?

The most interesting thing to me has been traditional Atlantic City restaurants joining up with casinos. As far as I know, this hasn't really happened before.

First up: White House Sub Shop. I have waxed poetic about this hoagie place many times on the blog, and in print. As of yesterday, they opened up a spot inside Trump Taj Mahal. That's a boon to people who don't want to drive out to the original spot (though I HIGHLY recommend it).

Second: Harry's Oyster & Seafood Bar is opening up at Bally's in June. This is from Frank Dougherty of Dock's Oyster House and, as he told me while interviewing him for Edible Jersey magazine, he sees this was what seafood places in Atlantic City used to be, which was good, fresh and not over the top expensive.

Frank also talked at length about how the dining scene has changed in Atlantic City, especially post-casino era. That article will be out shortly in the summer issue of Edible Jersey Magazine. I'll put up a link when that article's available online.
