'Hell's Kitchen' Descends on The Borgata Atlantic City
Tip: Fast forward to the 5:07 mark for their trip to The Borgata
Anybody watching this fifth season of Hell's Kitchen with angry chef Gordon Ramsay knows all too well about the final grand prize awaiting the winner: a restaurant of their own within the The Borgata Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, NJ. This most recent episode not only revealed the unfinished, massive space, but also gave viewers of the show a peek at the features of The Borgata and a glimpse inside the hotel's pimpin' private jet.
Aside from the jet and the restaurants, we learn from the hotel's Director of Marketing that The Borgata "launched the culinary revolution in Atlantic City" and was named a "Foodie Hotel" by Forbes.com. Big boasts from the hotel, but then we get a tour of the hotel's other restaurants from Bobby Flay and Wolfgang Puck to prove that they do have the big-name restaurants.
Perhaps now we'll have to start watching Hell's Kitchen, if only to see at whose place we'll able to eat in a year or so. Fast forward towards the end of the video to check out the gigantic space allotted to the winner. At a point, one of the finalists asks the Director of Marketing "how many square feet is this?" to which the Director replies, "more than you can use, I bet." No fooling; this is a huge new venture for a hotel in a city already struggling in the economy.
