Cafe 2825, Atlantic City, NJ, Restaurant, Southern Italian, Review, Good Food, Will Travel

Considered one of the best restaurants in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and beyond I got the pleasure to experience great food.
Cafe 2825 is located at 2825 Atlantic Ave. 609-344-6913.

Several offerings are prepared at table side. That’s the Cacio e Pepe. Next time I am having it. There is the cheese wheel with truffle cheese.

It was great to see finally diners enjoying themselves.

Wine and cheese to start. 609 Taken was our choice. Our server was very knowledgeable. She said everything is good here.

An appetizer of Zucchini Flowers filled with homemade ricotta and pan sauteed in lemon sauce. Delicate flavors❤️

Our next dish was Spicy Stuffed Calamari. The tubes were filled with breadcrumbs and crabmeat in a spicy marinara with calamari rings.

Do you like what you see? So good.

A salad of Scungilli…Mediterranean conch with lemon, olive oil, celery and olives. I love anything conch but I had never tasted the dark Mediterranean one. Tender and light?

Pasta is homemade. My choice? Wild Mushroom. Fresh Fettucine, porcini, shiitake, crimini mushrooms, cream sauce and truffle cheese. Seasoned perfectly and melted in your mouth.

Portions Cafe 2825 are very generous so come hungry.

Next was the Pescatore Fra DiAvolo. This dish is a showstopper. A feast for your eyes and stomach. Beautiful presentation and the taste to die for. Shrimp, calamari, mussels, clams, lobster tail, and spicy marinara. A side order of pasta, as well.

Cafe 2825 started 34 years ago. It is so popular with locals supporting it. Need to make reservations with time. I love eating late so really enjoyed our 8 p.m. reservation.

They are close Sunday and Monday. Mr. and Mrs. Lautato were so nice with Joe sitting with us for some time. They come to Rehoboth once in a while because at times you have to get out of your backyard. They love a restaurant in Delray called Tramonti which is a favorite of mine.

Please make sure to check them in social media.

All I can say is that Cafe 2825 delivered the texture, the tang, and the finish. I cannot wait to go back.

Fall is here. Enjoy it.

Suicide Bridge, Restaurant, Hurlock, Maryland, Review, Crab House, Hot Fat Crabs, Choptank River, Good Food, Will Travel

Run that by me one more time….Suicide Bridge? You’ve got to be kidding. No, it is true. Discovering our own backyards took us a few weeks ago to Suicide Bridge Restaurants in search for the best crabs you can find on the Eastern Shore. I mean it, the are.

It was a Thursday and the restaurant was crowded. I was totally impressed.

What a name and the fact that the bridge is small I was confused how anyone would commit suicide there. It is only 21 feet high. But, they have. The bridge was originally built in 1884. There have been about 6 suicides. Some shot themselves, others drove off and another one had second thoughts and was removed from the water. In any case there is a legend around Hurlock.

Our chase was for jumbo crabs. On our way there we called for a reservation and they said they had fat large ones. By the time we got there they told us they were just bringing Jumbos in and they would just have to sort them out. We can wait, we said. A Mai Tai, please while we are waiting.

These crabs could not have been more fresh.

We were sitting by the window overlooking the water and the crabbers coming in.

The restaurant can accommodate families, parties, and weddings.

A tourist bus from New York were having a blast eating crabs. You can have all you can eat or order by the dozen. Ours were going to be Jumbos, one dozen. These tourists were then going to take a scenic cruise for about one and a half hours on one of their Sternwheeler Riverboats. There are private charter cruisers as well.

Suicide Bridge Restaurant is located at 6304 Suicide Bridge Road, Hurlock, MD. Tel. 410-943-4689.

On their website above mentioned you may get directions. It is about an hour or so from Rehoboth Beach. Close to Easton, St. Michaels, Cambridge and Seaford. Totally worth it. Besides crabs they have a full menu.

The crabs were the best I have ever tasted. The restaurant opens Wednesday through Sunday.

The staff at the restaurant could not have been better. I have to give them a big shout.

I am still scratching my head wondering why I had never visited before. Locals have been going since its opening in the 1950’s.

All I can say is get out there and discover your backyard. There is so much to see and experience. I can honestly say that I cannot wait to go back.

AboutMyBeaches has a Facebook Page, check it out. Have a good one.
