ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Developer Bart Blatstein has chosen managers for the food and musical offerings at The Playground, the oceanfront Atlantic City pier he is redeveloping.

Garces Events, with celebrity chef Jose Garces, will provide food and beverage offerings for all the restaurants at T Street, one portion of the pier.

Bonfire Entertainment from Philadelphia will bring in acts from virtually every music and entertainment genre for the seven venues at T Street, located on the pier’s first floor.

The Playground is the new name for what used to be The Pier Shops at Caesars. It’s slated to open June 26.

“It’s an extremely tight schedule but you can see by the transformational progress today that this is what Tower Investments does,” Blatstein said Monday.

“We keep promises and get things done,” he added. “This city is going through its own rebirth, and Tower’s redesign of The Pier is only the beginning of our involvement in Atlantic City’s renaissance.”
