Tropicana Atlantic City recently announced the opening of Okatshe restaurant by Jose Garces, a renowned and award-winning chef whose exclusive concepts complement and enhance the properties diverse selection of restaurants.
Okatshe (pronounced Ō- kaht-she) is Chef Jose Garces’ playful, modernized take on a traditional Japanese izakaya. Okatshe visually transports guests to the streets of Tokyo and provides a sense of discovery by taking guests through a small Japanese candy (okashi) storefront before entering the restaurant. Okatshe is one of three restaurants recently opened at the casino-hotel by Garces.
“My team and I have worked hard at creating all-new restaurant options unlike any of our other restaurants. Each of the three restaurants has a unique look and feel that transports guests to either a Japanese streetscape, seafront coastal town, and beachside beer bar,” said Chef Jose Garces.
The full-service, 80-seat sit-down restaurant will serve a selection of small plates, yakitori, ramen, sushi and sashimi. Yakitori skewers include chicken, beef, pork, vegetable or seafood. Ramen noodles are served in three unique styles: Tokyo, light chicken and Dashi broth; Tonkastu, rich pork broth; and Okatshe, lobster dashi. Sushi, sashimi, and maki offerings include everything from scallop and wasabi tobiko to spicy rolls, black jack eel rolls, and the signature Tropicana roll.
The bar at Okatshe includes a curated selection of Japanese whiskeys, 50 sakes, beers, and specialty cocktails.
Okatshe is open from 4 p.m. – 2 a.m. seven days a week. Reservations are not required.
