This week I am going to crow about the dozen casinos that grace the Gulf Coast and have spectacular places to eat.
Don’t tell me you are a foodie but haven’t been to BR Prime, Thirty-Two, Mignons, Carter Green, Stalla, Magnolia House and all the rest.
What if I told you there was a sensational restaurant, but it was a little out of the way?
Maybe you’d have to park a few blocks away and walk. You wouldn’t hesitate to go, would you? Why then do so many people turn their culinary noses up at casino dining?
Never miss a local story.
At the casino steak houses, and more upscale restaurants, you will find some of the best chefs in the South, establishments that don’t blink an eye at over-nighting lobsters in from Maine, buying the best wagyu beef, French foie gras, or even house-made charcuterie.
And talk about wine cellars. Several of the casinos have award-winning cellars with hundreds of labels from which to choose and a sommelier to help you make your selection.
The image here is a Cioppino, an Italian-style seafood stew, from Thirty-Two, the IP’s fine dining establishment. Besides spectacular food, it also has a stunning view of the Coast. Hands down, one of the most romantic places on the Coast with one of the most talented chefs around, to boot.
