Only the chandeliers break the Venetian-atrium illusion at Resorts’ fanciest Boardwalk-side dining room. Fresh lilies are an elegant tableside touch. Murals of masquerade balls and passing gondolas match the sweep of milky blue sky across the ceiling, transporting diners to Italy’s “City of Water.” Downshift from the adrenaline rush of the casino floor with the leisurely crunch of prosciutto bruschetta with sweet apple marmellata and a rumor of creamy goat cheese. Window views frame the lapping waves outside while you tuck into calamari marinated in olive-artichoke vinaigrette, broiled lamb chops finished with a dollop of broccoli rabe pesto, semolina-and-potato-crusted red snapper flecked with sauteed spicy peppers or (sigh) veal osso buco. Whether you punctuate the experience with cappuccino and crème brûlée of brandy with Madagascar vanilla cream custard and candied orange, or just polish off a house-picked pinot noir, you might find the Atlantic has begun to affect that illustrious Mediterranean shimmer.
