Revel has really become a go-to spot for me as of lately and now I can almost safely say that I have tried quite a bit of a very large menu. Why do I keep coming back, and trying more? Well maybe because every single thing that I have tried has been quite delicious. Also, I really do enjoy the ambiance of Revel. I like the trendy decor and vibe that feels like you’re kind of in Manhattan whilst for me being local. Also as I mentioned in the last post too, the menu is very diverse and definitely doesn’t fall into one category. So I guess you can classify it something like American fusion. Definitely check out the previous post for more reccomendations and my thoughts on Revel but for now here is a second food run down.
Ok, both the egg rolls and spring rolls are definite winners. I really can’t choose between them. For me they are also completely incomparable because one has that duck sauce like component that gives it a little Asian inspired vibe. The other is on the spicier side and I am a huge spicy lover. Of course one is chicken, one is beef so I guess if you’re between the two you can base your decision off that preference.
While I have ordered this twice, and I will say one time was better than the other. I would continue to order the Tokyo nachos because it really is just a nice bite of food.
Similarly to the egg roll spring roll situation, I really think both of these flatbreads are awesome and well executed. I am a huge spinach artichoke dip fan in general and this definitely was great and also had more elevated flavors than your typical dip. But I already knew this was foolproof and that I would likely enjoy it. The Lobster Shrimp Scampi flatbread was kind of a wild card to me because you don’t always associate seafood, and dairy or pizza together. However, it was exceptional. I loved the way the flavors came together and would definitely order it again also.
Delicious. Everything about it. I love the freshness of the ingredients and frying the burrata made it all the more better. Similarly to the last post about the burrata salad, I don’t get a truffle vibe from it, which is in the title but to be fair it is not mentioned in the description. Once you take out that factor if it builds up your expectations, there is nothing to complain about.nd
Another quite foolproof order if you ask me, but it was definitely a well done one, was the mac and cheese – a nice consistency and very tasty. The short ribs and polenta is also a nice entree pick for something a little more well rounded, although again, not much flavor in the truffle department.
The baked clams and shrimp oregonato was great and I don’t have a criticism although in comparison to more unique options like the egg rolls and the flatbreads, it was a little more like eh – let’s save this kind of dish for an Italian night.
The smores martini was actually really a nice way to end. Not too sweet and certainly on the boozy side. My only complaint was that I expected a toasted marshmallow and alas, it wasn’t there.
