It’s back to work for me today and when this post goes live, I’ll be back in my classroom getting started with my first class of the day. Hopefully my first day back after the break will be relatively painless.
If you know me, you know I love food and eating. When I was in Atlantic City last week, my friend and I made reservations at the Old Homestead Steak House at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. It was a restaurant my friend had been wanting to try for a long time so we made reservations ahead of our trip and were looking forward to it that whole day. To find out what we thought, keep reading!
The restaurant was incredible accommodating and the service right off the bat was impeccable. We arrived about 20 minutes prior to our 8:30PM reservation to let them know that it would be 2 instead of 3 of us. They said it wouldn’t be a problem and we could be seated earlier if we wanted. We walked in and the restaurant was so much bigger than I expected it to be from the outside. The restaurant has an open floor plan and a second floor that is visible from the first floor. I always love restaurants like this because the ones that have a second floor where you can’t see always seem so closed off to me. We were seated on the second floor and I really wished we had a table by the railing so I could look over, but alas we were at one of the tables away from the railing and against the wall.
I ordered the 10 oz. Filet Mignon with a demi glaze and hash brown. I also ordered a side of brussels sprouts. The brussels sprouts were $13 which is steep for a side order, but I figured it was par for the course when dining in an expensive restaurant. However, I was so surprised to find that my side of brussels sprouts was a large bowl!
The filet mignon was delicious and even though I like my meat medium-well, it was still melt in your mouth good and not dry at all. The steak sat on a hash brown that was almost as thick as the meat itself. It was called a hash brown, but it was a lot like a potato croquette. It was deliciously crusty on the outside and soft on the inside.
The food was so delicious and the service was outstanding. It was definitely worth it to make the reservations and go! There are two other locations, one in New York City and one in Las Vegas. I highly recommend checking Old Homestead out!
