Chef Brian Piasecki reveals a few details of the upcoming renovation of the popular California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort at Walt Disney World!
This high-end restaurant offers exquisite cuisine and top-notch fireworks viewing, but we’ll have to find another signature spot to dine for the first half of 2013! According to the DisneyParks Blog, we finally have a solid date for the restaurant’s closure that we reported earlier this year.
California Grill will close in early 2013, and re-open in the late summer. Save us a spot at this window table!
Menu and Other Updates
While the menu will undergo some tweaking, a fresh, seasonal menu with top-of-the-line sushi will continue to be the main focus of the kitchen.
The continued use of creative flavors and techniques will allow chefs to create the sophisticated cuisine that keeps guests returning. Chef Piasecki noted, “I’ve got a great group of chefs in my kitchen and a great crew in the dining room, and we all plan to return”. That’s great news for guests that love the California Grill!
The two private dining rooms will be kept for personalized catering for groups and parties. Enhancements will be made to the interactive kitchen which will allow for a “fresh spin to California Grill classics, and add some cutting-edge new selections to the menu”.
Here’s hoping that historic and incredible goat cheese ravioli finds its way back onto the menu!
We can’t wait for more news on the renovation. What do you hope to see (or taste) when the restaurant re-opens?
