Atlantic City Food Tours Offers Culinary Guide to Ducktown
Have you ever wondered about the history of Atlantic City, which was once a melting pot of newly arrived immigrants and even bootleggers during the prohibition era?
On Saturday, July 23 at 2:30 p.m., Atlantic City Food Tours will be talking about all that and more during their walk through Ducktown, a district of Atlantic City that was heavily settled by Italian immigrants during the 20th century. Over the years, the neighborhood has gone through changes, but many of the historic culinary institutions have survived.
The restaurants on this tour date from the early to mid-1900s. First up is Angelo’s Fairmont Tavern, which has been around since 1935 and had also been managed by three generations of the same family. At Angelo’s, participants will enjoy classic Italian comfort food like Nonna used to make it. Next, the tour will head towards White House Sub Shop for an Italian sub. This local institution has been serving Atlantic City residents and visitors for seven decades.
For seafood, the tour will stop at Barbera Seafood Market, an Atlantic City fish market since 1919. Take a walk along the historic boardwalk and visit Fralinger’s for a sweet bite of homemade fudge.
The tour will close at Formica’s Bakery, which has been in operation for over 90 years, serving the community freshly baked bread and Italian sweet treats. Each tour guest will head home with their own box of James’ Salt Water Taffy.
