February 1st was the last day River Belle Terrace operated as a Counter Service location. When it reopens on February 10th, it will be a Table Service restaurant. Additionally, this beloved breakfast location will serve only lunch and dinner moving forward.
Keeping its focus on Southern cuisine, barbecue will be the featured fare (and at the moment, it appears the menu will be the same for both lunch and dinner).
But before digging into entrees, starters will certainly be up for grabs. You may begin your meal with Pimento Cheese Dip served with toasted bread and celery or Grilled and Chilled Shrimp with house-made barbecue sauce, or perhaps a salad. The House Salad will be made of arugula, apple, gorgonzola, dried cranberries and candied pecans topped with apple vinaigrette.
Barbecue Ribs, Beef Brisket, a Fried Chicken Sandwich, Pulled Pork and Oven-Roasted Barbecue Chicken will make up some of the more traditional entree choices, alongside a Catch of the Day. Salads will also be featured on the menu, including the River Belle’s Chopped Salad (romaine lettuce, black beans, garbanzo beans, pickles, roasted red pepper and tomato topped with fried onions and BBQ-ranch dressing) and the Terrace Wedge, where iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, bacon and crumbled gorgonzola are given a Southern twist with a pickled red onion garnish and buttermilk-gorgonzola dressing. Either option can be topped with chicken, grilled shrimp, brisket, or BBQ tofu.
Dessert selections will include a Butterscotch Pudding Parfait and warm Maple, Apple and Bacon Bundt Cake. And while that last one sounds intriguing, I don’t know if I’d be able to resist the Fried Cheesecake. Much as I will miss sitting down to start a Disneyland morning with a Mickey Pancake and a gorgeous view at River Belle Terrace, I have to admit that some of these items sound rather promising.
(Plus, I know I’ll be able to get my Mickey Pancake at Rancho del Zocalo, now serving breakfast!)
