Adam Bell of dataTV

Adam Bell is our accomplished, long-time Website and Social Media maven. He’s a foodie in good-standing with a particular affinity for the best in regional pizza, distinctive craft beer, and artisan coffee brewed from freshly roasted and ground, fair-trade coffee beans.

Adam was recently in Atlantic City for a few days. Earlier in his career he lived there for a number of years. Adam avoided the heavily-hyped restaurants in the big Hotel Casino Resorts and, instead, renewed his acquaintance with the smaller establishments (representing better value) oozing with local character that the residents frequent.

Along the way Adam will profile the Mancuso Family’s Angelo’s Fairmount Tavern a locals’ hang since 1935 with a ton of history. It’s an iconic red sauce Italian spot with meatballs that still truly amaze.

Show 374, May 23, 2020: Journalist Al Mancini, Staff Writer, Las Vegas Review-Journal

Al Mancini of the Las Vegas Review JournalOne of our most reliable sources of accurate restaurant news in fabulous Las Vegas is Al Mancini, who is a staff writer for The Las Vegas Review Journal covering food, restaurants and other aspects of entertainment. Al has been working the Vegas food scene for 19 years. He was one of the creators of the popular, and widely referenced, Eating Las Vegas restaurant guidebook series.

Al joins us with a report on dining in the restaurants that have been allowed to reopen for full-service in Las Vegas. Restaurants located off The Strip have permission to reopen for dine-in with precautions. Establishments located in The Strip hotel casinos (and other hotel casinos) can only reopen if they have outside access to the restaurants that doesn’t necessitate walking through a closed casino floor.

Al shares the welcome news that complimentary self-parking (with a few exceptions for large special events) will return at all the Strip Hotel Casinos when they reopen.
