Walt Disney World Resort has given a look at the newly reimagined Citricos that is inside Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. This lovely dining establishment takes its cue designs from Mary Poppins Returns.
The restaurant will be opening on July 15, 2021. Bookings will begin on July 1, 2021. Once there, guests will be able to dine “underneath the lovely London sky” in a charming garden setting that has the magical glow of decorative lamps and chandeliers.
A description of the food for the updated Citricos was released on the Disney Parks Blog. Take a look at what is being offered:
Chef Andres Mendoza crafted a new menu with starters like Sweet Corn Bisque with pickled fennel, popcorn, and fennel oil and a colorful Strawberry Salad with chamomile-infused goat cheese, frisée lettuce, bacon vinaigrette, and spiced sunflower seeds.
Entrées include Butter-poached Florida Cobia with mashed fingerling potatoes, grilled asparagus, and local mushrooms with a grapefruit beurre blanc or a delicious Guava Barbequed Short Ribs with aged cheddar creamy grits, roasted poblano, curtido slaw, and Brussels sprouts.
For a sweet ending to your meal, Pastry Chef Kristine Farmer created some truly delicious and decadent desserts such as Warm Apple Rose with seasonal apple, marzipan layers, and frozen coconut milk and the Chocolate Torte, a dark chocolate financier, dark cherry compote, and vanilla bean mascarpone cream.
The wine and cocktail program, designed by Sommelier Israel Perez, is exceptional. For those who enjoy an elevated food and wine experience, the new and exclusive Sommelier Room at Cítricos will allow Israel and his team to source boutique wines that pair with special creations from Chef Andres.
