Developer Planning Social Distancing Dining Events to Turn Orange Loop into an Outdoor Playground

Atlantic City, New Jersey  –  Our world is slowly starting to recover from the Coronavirus pandemic, and businesses are excited to reopen and safely serve their communities. Bourré and Loteria in Atlantic City will reopen on Monday, June 15 for outdoor dining. Bourré is a New Orleans-inspired pub serving Cajun BBQ cuisine on New York Ave, and Loteria is a Mexican-themed eatery located on the Atlantic City boardwalk. Both locations are following all government-mandated rules for reopening, and will allow guests to enjoy summer at the shore while properly social distancing.

Both Bourré and Loteria are the concept of real estate developer Pat Fasano, who is a large part of the rebirth of Atlantic City and the creation and growth of The Orange Loop. A key force involved in the renaissance of Asbury Park, he is now bringing his vision to America’s Playground, and he is ready for summer to begin.

“Atlantic City should be an outdoor city,” says Fasano. “I’m taking lemons and making lemonade by turning this primarily indoor town into an outdoor playground. Everyone wants to dine outside during the summer, but after Covid-19, that’s true now more than ever. I want to extend the life of the outdoor season in Atlantic City through December.”

Always keeping things interesting, his transformation includes completely revamping the outdoor space at Bourré with the addition of a container bar, a container stage, and a container bridge to connect both. Plenty of picnic tables set 6 feet apart are plotted next to a sand pit that will host a volleyball court, firepits and beach chairs. Embrace a scene straight from Bourbon street while enjoying Cajun BBQ food from the outdoor smoker and sipping on hand-crafted drinks.

Located directly on Atlantic City’s famous boardwalk, Loteria offers up authentic Mexican street food and creative cocktails. Loteria’s laid back style is the perfect vibe for riding the wave of the endless summer. With outdoor seating right on the boardwalk, guests can watch the chefs create freshly made tortillas and sip a cerveza while basking in the sun and watching the tide roll in. Additional outdoor seating will be at the street level back entrance patio.

Bourré is located at 201 S. New York Ave, Atlantic City 08401. For more information, visit or call (609)246-6670. Loteria is located at 1523 Boardwalk, Atlantic City 08401. For more information, call (609)727-0457
