Atlantic City - Chef Jose Garces' Newest Ecuadorian Seafood Experience: Located on the beach side of the Tropicana in Atlantic City, is where you’ll find Chef Jose Garce’s newest 128 seat Ecuadorian inspired seafood restaurant offering his traditional family recipes.
While the food and service are outstanding as expected, Olón is unlike any other Garces’ restaurant you’ve previously been to. With picturesque views of the Atlantic City shoreline visible from every table, you will be engulfed in the beach-like atmosphere throughout your entire dining experience. Natural and soft décor including cozy booths with brightly colored pillows and private island style seating coves allow you to feel relaxed while enjoying your meal. During warmer months outside seating is also available for those who wish to really reap the benefits of the perfectly located restaurant and enjoy the beach front views.
Chef Jose Garces - Ecuadorean by heritage, Garces has built a pan-Latin empire from his Philadelphia home base, growing from humble beginnings into a premier chef with 16 restaurants across three states, plus the District of Columbia. After growing up in Chicago and cooking in both Spain and the U.S., Garces landed in Philly in 2001. He opened Amada, his flagship Andalusian tapas restaurant in Old City, just four years later. Steady expansion, along with several hit cookbooks, a role on Food Network’s “Iron Chef America” and a Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic award from the James Beard Foundation would soon follow. These days, Garces splits his time between his many concepts; his Garces Foundation, which provides support and services to Philadelphia’s immigrant communities; Garces & Sons Coffee, where Chef Garces works with his father, who roasts all of the coffee; and Luna Farm, his 40-acre farm in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
Guests are welcome to be seated at the large raw bar where they can watch and enjoy the preparation of freshly made ceviche and other raw seafood items. For those who wish to be seated in the dining section also have the option to order from the raw bar menu. Olón’s al a cart menu offers a variety of seafood items served family style including jumbo lump crab cake, prawns, twin lobster tails, clams, and a whole branzino. Non seafood items with an Ecuadorian twist include Wagyu sirloin, chicken, empanadas, and numerous kabob choices. Also See..Chef Jose Garces Opening 3 New Restaurants in AC's Tropicana
