Sammy D’s Harrah’s Resort Sammy D’s Restaurant and Bar at Harrah’s Resort is an Atlantic City restaurant offering casual dining morning, noon and night, featuring acclaimed cuisine by Chef Sammy DeMarco. At Sammy D’s, Chef DeMarco takes East Coast favorites to the next level. Try his Philly cheesesteak dumplings, lollipop wings, “SAM”-wiches and skyhigh cakes. Start your day here with omelets, bennies and pancakes. Then come back for comfort food reinvented – dishes like roast pork and broccoli rabe egg rolls, Sammy’s pub burger, lobster rolls, chicken Parmesan and steak frites. The Society Page got Sammy out of the kitchen for a couple of minutes to discuss his love of food, fun, and what makes Sammy D’s, Sammy D’s. What makes Sammy D’s the essential dining experience: Sammy D’s offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and bar staples, like that, of a coffee shop, but taken to the next level. We prepare all of our food items with a special Sammy D twist, literally going beyond the norms of food and getting as creative as we can. Here at Sammy D’s we try to placate to guests of all kinds, whether that be a family looking to take their dinner to unparalleled comforts or that late night Pool After Dark crowd looking to satiate their hunger. My influences growing up: The main influence in my childhood that led me to pursue a culinary career was being part of an Italian-Sicilian family with three great grandparents that always surrounded me with homecooked food. Accomplishment that I’m most proud of: To date, I would say the accomplishment I’m most proud of is to have a T.V. show currently in the works for the Travel Channel. The show is set to air by the end of 2012 - beginning of 2013. My signature dishes at Sammy D’s: - The BLTA (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, Avocado, Chipotle Mayo) Sandwich - Walnut Shrimp - BBQ Pork Eggrolls - Lollipop Chicken Wings - Philly Cheese Steak Dumplings - S’mores Pancakes


- Cotton Candy Cake - Signature Cocktails My culinary advice for the amateur home chef: - Cook with the season (use ingredients that are in season) - Always start with good quality ingredients - Keep it simple until you master the basics - Have fun with cooking & the whole process from cooking to serving and enjoying - Don’t be afraid or intimidated How do I unwind: My favorite way to unwind is by spending time off with my family - my two young daughters the little D’s, Dakota & Delilah, and my wife Ellen. My favorite whimsical dish at Sammy D’s: I am currently really excited about the Cotton Candy Cake at Sammy D’s. The one thing that people would not know about me: For the people that know me, they know that I am driven by all things culinary and my brain just doesn’t stop in that regard. They would also know that I am not the most athletic and/or outdoors kind of guy. So it may come as a surprise to say that I have done white water rafting down the Lehigh River, as well as have gone on ATV outings in Mexico. I really enjoyed doing both due to the adrenaline factor, but you won’t find me camping in the wild any time soon!
