When the signature dining restaurant reopens, it will welcome Guests in a newly reimagined space. The restaurant will also feature a refreshed menu crafted by Chef Noah Estabrook and Pastry Chef Kristine Farme.
The menu incorporates the concept of “land and sea”. Guests will start their meal with an Artisan Boule of Sourdough made with a perfectly toasty crust and baked daily in the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa bakery.
For the first course, the Bisque will be returning, but Guests will also be able to enjoy Beef and Ricotta Tortelloni accompanied by luscious brown butter, parsnip puree, and sultana raisins. There will also be an Ocean-inspired Charcuterie Board that features ahi tuna pastrami, charred octopus, and house-made sausage from the sea.
As far as the main course is concerned, the signature dish will be Blackened Redfish. This meal is served with a crispy chorizo-sunchoke hash with hominy, Florida sweet corn, and red pepper rouille. Guests may also enjoy the Dry-Aged Pork Ribeye Chop served with creamy goat cheese-potato pave and turnips with onion jam and a touch of fig jus. Narcoossee’s favorites will also be returning, like the Plancha-seared Scallops with Parisian Gnocchi and Surf and Turf featuring tender filet mignon and butter-poached lobster tail. For those who enjoy a plant-based diet, there will be Roasted Vegetable Paella featuring market vegetables, cannellini beans, and preserved artichoke finished with charred Meyer lemon.
Looking for dessert? Consider the Almond-crusted Cheesecake with Lambert cherry sauce and Chantilly cream. There’s also the Berry Pavlova. This is crafted with Florida fresh berries and citrus placed over meringue and yuzu crémeux. It will be finished with a tableside pour of anglaise. The Pineapple Bavarois features a roasted-pineapple center and house-made blackberry-buttermilk ice cream.
Looking for beverage options? This restaurant will have you covered. The wine list has been refreshed and there will be a new cocktail program, inspired by the Victorian era. A must-try is the signature Empress Lime Gimlet. This will be a modern twist on a classic gimlet with Empress Gin, Rockey’s Botanical Liqueur, and cold-pressed lime.
The reopening of Narcoossee’s comes as part of the multi-year transformation of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Reservations will open on March 1.
