Cítricos at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa will be reopening on July 15th with a “Mary Poppins Returns” theme. Bookings are available on July 1. The Disney Parks Blog states of this reimagining:
Taking subtle cues from the movie’s animated sequence, the dining room brings guests into a fanciful garden setting where you can “trip a little light fantastic” as you experience the restaurant surrounded by the glow from decorative lamps and chandeliers.
Starters include Sweet Corn Bisque with pickled fennel, popcorn, and fennel oil and a colorful Strawberry Salad with chamomile-infused goat cheese, frisée lettuce, bacon vinaigrette, and spiced sunflower seeds.
Entrées include Butter-poached Florida Cobia with mashed fingerling potatoes, grilled asparagus, and local mushrooms with a grapefruit beurre blanc or a delicious Guava Barbequed Short Ribs with aged cheddar creamy grits, roasted poblano, curtido slaw, and Brussels sprouts.
Chef Andres Mendoz created this menu.
Pastry Chef Kristine Farmer is extremely talented at inventive desserts, and that is the same here. Desserts include Warm Apple Rose with seasonal apple, marzipan layers, and frozen coconut milk and also the Chocolate Torte – a dark chocolate financier, dark cherry compote, and vanilla bean mascarpone cream.
Sommelier Israel Perez designed the wine and cocktail menu. There will be a “new and exclusive” Sommelier Room at Cítricos that “will allow Perez and his team to source boutique wines that pair with special creations from Chef Andres”.
