Steve Martorano is bringing his popular Italian-American restaurant namesake to Harrah's in Atlantic City!

Martorano currently has restaurants in Florida and Las Vegas and now he's opening a Martorano's in our backyard!

I.Could.Not.Be.Happier!!!!!

I've (sadly) never eaten at a Martorano's, but my friend Mindy (who lives in South Florida) has....  And she raves about the food!

Steve Martorano is a self-taught chef who grew up in South Philly.  A lot of his dishes are family recipes that have been handed down generation after generation.  Some of his signature dishes are his Eggplant Stack, South Philly Cheeseteak and his famous Homemade Meatballs.  Evidently, everyone from Jimmy Kimmel and Al Pacino have called them the best in the world!

The BEST in the world?  Well, I need to try one of those meatballs!!

Martorano's at Harrah's is set to open July 4th weekend!
