California Grill to Serve Brunch Starting February 7

Disney is continuing to expand the offering of special events at Disney World and the latest announcement is that California Grill will start serving brunch on February 7, 2016. The new experience, which will be called “Brunch at the Top”, will take place on Sunday’s and is being described by Disney as “not quite breakfast, not quite lunch.” The Disney Parks Blog goes on to say, “Chef Brian Piasecki’s team is excited to launch a whole new menu to showcase their fresh, market-driven cuisine.”

Another interesting part of this experience is that there will be an interactive portion of the brunch and guests will even get to visit the open concept kitchen. The Disney Parks Blog describes this experience: “You get the chance to interact with the culinary team in the open show kitchen while savoring charcuterie, sushi and market-inspired salads. Start the experience with an assortment of house-made breakfast pastries delivered to your table (think caramel apple Monkey bread, Tillamook Cheddar biscuit and cranberry scones pecan) with house-made jam and orange blossom honey butter. Then head to the show kitchen for small tastes such as house smoked orange honey ham, deviled Lake Meadow Naturals eggs, Greek yogurt with vanilla-scented granola and fresh berries, kale and apple salad, baby iceberg wedge with Cherrywood bacon and avocado-buttermilk Ranch dressing, hardwood smoked salmon, California rolls with jumbo lump crabmeat, spicy tuna rolls and shrimp tempura with orange drizzle and mango.” 

The parks blog also commented on the entree choices that guests will get to choose from:

  • “Pan-Fried Buttermilk Organic Chicken Cutlet with Haricots Verts, Toasted Almonds, Frisée, Beurre Noisette;
  • Sweet Potato Pancakes with Caramelized Heirloom Apples, Dried Cranberry and Raisin Compote, Vanilla
  • Custard, Warm Canadian Maple Syrup;
  • Shrimp and Grits, Gulf White Shrimp with Tillamook Cheddar Grits, Spicy Tomato Broth,
    Espellette-Spiced Tomato Ragout;
  • Poached Lobster Benedict with Butter-Poached Tail, Two Soft-Poached Eggs, Honey Ham,

There will, of course, be a wide array of dessert selections available after the main course as well. The cost for this new experience is $80 for adults and $48 for children ages 3 to 11. Guests can begin making reservations online or by phone (407-WDW-DINE) on December 16.
