Serpico is a collaboration between James Beard award-winning chef Peter Serpico and restaurateur Stephen Starr. Located on South Street, the 60-seater will have a true neighborhood feel, with cozy booths, counter seating and a small bar at which the full menu will be available. <br /><br />Serving dinner only, the cuisine is ingredient-driven offering a seasonally evolving menu of playful yet familiar takes on global fare. A small hand-picked list of food-friendly wines will perfectly complement the menu and a quality cocktail program will focus on boutique spirits.

"We were a party of three on Sunday evening. We got our favorite seats at the Chef's bar, as requested in advance. We were very excited to see Chef Serpico in the house, overseeing and creating some wonderful food. The specials are always a must-try, and the cauliflower salad was terrific. As was the amazing egg custard with truffle shaved on top. The regular menu favorites rounded out our meal, including the sensation scallop dish, the duck leg sandwich, the Cope's corn ravioli and the unbelievable maitake mushroom. The rose was crisp and super dry, and went beautifully with the food."

The Iron Room is the restaurant at the Atlantic City Bottle Company & is a nod to the recently retired iron playing piece in the popular board game Monopoly. The Iron Room specializes in small plates & the cuisine is described as distinctly American. Chef Kevin Cronin says what makes it American is that the menu is a hodge-podge & mashing of cultures making the cuisine an interesting melting pot. <br><br>Local seafood, game meats, hand-made pastas & the “Flat Iron Burger” (the menu’s only permanent resident) are what guests can expect to see when visiting the restaurant. The Iron Room will also feature tasting menus & host special events dedicated to craft beverages & great food. We are as passionate about cheese as we our craft beverage. We have around 15-25 cheeses from all over the world on our list every day covering all the five catergories: fresh, bloomy, washed, pressed/cooked, and blue.

"We had another terrific meal at the Iron Room on Friday. The food and wine are wonderful there. The staff is great, and they have experts to help you choose your wine, beer, and whiskey. The vibe is great - lively and friendly. Also, their wine store in the front, Atlantic City Bottle Company, is THE place to get your wine in the Atlantic City area. Skip the big box stores. Head here!"
