opened earlier this summer on Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure and it’s serving up “California Gastro Pub” eats in a playful atmosphere!
The menu features small plates and entrees, and the Potato Skins are a fun twist on a standard bar-and-grill item.
The dish features Crispy Yukon Gold potatoes served with brown butter-caper yogurt, smoked paprika aioli, and Manchego cheese.
These would make a great addition to your next party menu!
