Phish in A.C., Part 2: In search of a bean burrito, with recommendations

Phish in A.C., Part 2: In search of a bean burrito, with recommendations

Phish Fever appears to be proceding apace out there on the Boardwalk with the third and last, and most anticipated, show of the stopover tonight: the vaunted Halloween show, with a full Led Zeppelin album supposedly on the docket, according to local gadfly (and father of Phish fan) Pinky Kravitz. In any case, the main beef with the city appears to be the lack of adequate space to sell their bean burritos, wares and, it must be noted, shrooms. Here's some Phish message board type griping and advice (play the penny slots, get free drinks) here.
Here's a Press of Atlantic City story lamenting the lack of bean burrito space, with one fan going so far as to blame the situation on the city's greed. Let me spell it out for you, if I may be so bold. Yup. That's how we roll here. No way the city's going to go out of its way to set up space so fans can subsist on their own veggie and black bean burritos. You'll just have to outsource it in this town. Can't help on the shrooms front, but for bean burritos, there are some excellent options: I recommend the authentic and tasty Mexico on 3810 Ventnor Ave, the long-standing Los Amigos at 1926 Atlantic, Mexico Lindo at 3810 Ventnor Ave., and, further down the Boardwalk, Isabella's At Night at Ventnor and Portland in Ventnor.

Since 1990, she has covered the waterfront for The Inquirer — from the Atlantic to the Delaware Bay shore — and some of the mainland in between. Along the way, she amassed an encyclopedic knowledge of this tear-it-down-and-build-it-back-up region, delving into the history and the hype of a place with a lot of unexpected stories to tell.
