I’m convinced; almost all great and authentic Italian chefs were born in Italy but migrated to Brooklyn.
Dinner this weekend at Café 2825 was out of this world!
It’s a very small quaint but cozy café located in the heart of Atlantic City, New Jersey.
This fine eatery serves simple Italian-American cuisine in an upscale casual style location since arriving from Brooklyn in 1986. The service is/was impeccable from start to finish. The food was so authentic, you would swear somebody’s Italian grand-mama was in the kitchen churning her very own home-made sauces and slicing her very own pasta. Fresh mozzarella was being made right before our eyes and added a tasty touch to any dish.
The bread was delivered to our table hot and slighted dusted from the oven, with an olive oil dipping that put butter to shame. Our choice for an appetizer was stuffed calamari…one big roll of calamari stuffed with crabmeat and rings of calamari dancing around it. The menu said it was fried but the taste said something different.
Rated one of the top five (5) restaurants in Atlantic City, NJ the ambiance was warm, friendly and very inviting.
So if you’re ever in the Atlantic City area, make Café 2825 your choice for dining.
