ATLANTIC CITY — Bobby Flay Steak at Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa will close June 30, the casino announced Monday.
According to a newsrelease, “Borgata and Flay’s hospitality group, Bold Food, made the mutual decision to close the restaurant as part of the companies’ evolving business strategies.”
Bobby Flay Steak opened in 2006 at Borgata as part of a $200 million expansion project bringing Vegas-style fine dining to Atlantic City casinos with celebrity chefs Flay, Wolfgang Puck and Michael Mina. Mina’s restaurant, Sea Blue, closed eight years ago.
Since then Borgata has welcomed other celebrity chefs and Food Network stars such as Michael Symon with Angeline and Geoffrey Zakarian, who served as a culinary lifestyle consultant for The Water Club at Borgata.
After indoor dining was shut down last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Puck’s restaurant American Grille never reopened, but Flay’s steak house did in September at limited capacity due to state restrictions.
Borgata said that after June 30, Flay’s former space will not be unoccupied, as there are plans for a temporary restaurant owned and operated by Borgata and MGM Resorts International.
The concept of the temporary replacement restaurant is still being worked out.
Additional information on a future permanent replacement will be announced in the coming months, Borgata said.
