Smile Zowie!

Those pictures are really amazing. I've been on the fence about CG but now, I must go!

Thank you so much for sharing your talent and food experience.

Talking

This has to be my favorite food thread! I am such a foodie myself, although on a beer budget since the kids !
The pictures are so wonderful, I am looking forward to dining there in Dec on our last night! After looking at the pictures, I am thinking a second night!

I am on the food plan, but what is your next favorite place, even if it is two credits? Do you have pictures? You are very talented! Will you marry me?

If you have the time and the credits, I would plan two nights, as well. I would suggest that you separate the two nights by more than 48 hours - on the off, off chance that you are disappointed - that will leave you sufficient cancellation time.

Hmmm... not sure, but probably this - each restaurant reference is a link to a picture thread:

Signature Dining (two credits):
1. California Grill (food and ambience; best server so far = Gary)
2. Artist's Point (food)
3. Narcoosies (lobster, best server = Aman) or Citricos (variety, ambience)

Table Service (single credit):
1. Le Cellier (food)
2. Wolfgang Puck (food)

If you like picture-food, here is a link to the Grand Floridian Tea.

Hi,

I'm composing a Disney screensaver and am dying to add CG pictures. Yours are the best. Any chance you can provide a link to some full-sized files? (i.e. 1024x768)?

Thanks. This is an awesome thread!

Gorgeous pictures! Everything looks (almost) too good to eat. And I want to personally thank you for helping convince DH to try California Grill again. We've been a few times but the last couple of trips he said he doesn't want to eat there. I showed him your pics and now I think he's coming around.

Let me give this some thought. If you have a few specific ones that you want, I will send them via PM. I have thought about creating a separate folder and making them all available, but am not quite sure about that. Give me a little more time...

Well - I would say that it is different, but largely the same. In other words, I could comment on the items that are familiar, but probably not much of a resource on whether the new items should be considered. That said, if I were ordering today....
  • Flatbreads - I haven't tried any of these listed, but if I were going to get a flatbread, I would probably get the chicken (interesting mix-ins) or the BLT (after asking the server how customers are reacting to it and what Nueske's bacon is)
  • Sushi - my favorite is Yellowfin Tuna 3 ways, but all the sushi is outstanding, so I recommend ordering based on what is listed vs. what you like / know.
  • Entree - probably the buffalo steak (because we have had it before, it is lean and the accompaniments sound interesting) or the halibut (only after asking what Chef Jens recommends that day, as he IS the fish expert ).
  • Dessert - me? The cheese board - always. Although I might be tempted by the white coffee ice cream.

All that said, I would consult with the server - describes things you like and dislike - don't be swayed by a single ingredient - they can always customize to your requirements!

I hope it works out well for you. If you have any questions, let me know. Was his concern with the food? Ambience? Service?

Thanks for the advice... last year I had a flatbread and it was my favorite thing I ordered. I also had sushi and an entree, and think I'll try all new things this year. Can't wait!!
