The long awaited marriage between musician-hospitality industry Titan Jimmy Buffett and Atlantic City was officially consummated today as the Pasha of Parrotheads and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie unveiled plans for a business partnership between Buffett's Margaritaville empire and Resorts Casino-Hotel.
Buffet's signature Margaritaville Cafe will take over the Boardwalk-fronting real estate currently occupied by Breadsticks Cafe & Grill, while a Landshark Bar & Grill will be erected on the refurbished Steeplechase Pier on the Boardwalk at Pennsylvania Avenue.
According to Christie, the entire project represents another $35 million in Atlantic City development.
Construction on The two complexes is expected to begin later this year, with an opening targeted for next spring.
