In yet another twist to the menu at Gaston’s Tavern in Magic Kingdom’s New Fantasyland, Gaston has added some mammoth, meaty sandwiches to the offerings.
You may know that we have long bemoaned the loss of the Pork Shank, which was the Tavern’s signature item when New Fantasyland opened in 2012. Ever since that was removed from the menu, it’s felt like Gaston’s Tavern has lost its footing somewhat in figuring out what to serve (awesome Cinnamon Roll — with extra icing, please! — notwithstanding). Though they did have a decent Tavern Beef Stew for a spell, entree-style items have been largely absent from the menu here.
But for a place with such terrific atmosphere, we wanted more of a reason to linger in the setting in addition to the sweet snacks primarily featured on the menu. Yep, I call the atmosphere “terrific.” Because you know Gaston… he loves his compliments!
Plus, it truly is an awesome setting…
Anyway, these new sandwiches just may provide that excuse! First on the list is the new Ham, Brie, and Grain Mustard Sandwich served with chips. (And you’ll never hear me complain about Brie anywhere!)
The other offering — also served with chips — is the Smoked Turkey, Swiss, and Cranberry Aioli Sandwich.
And you can choose, of course, to wash either of those down with a nice, cold LeFou’s Brew!
So what do you think? Will these sandwiches tempt you to spend more time at Gaston’s Tavern? Do you think they’re just in the mix for Spring Break and then we’ll lose them?
P.S. I’m not anti the new sandwiches, myself… but please bring back the Pork Shank, Gaston!!!
