I sent you a PM with a list. Thank you! I don't mind being patient. Sadly this will have to be my "fix" since DH and I aren't going to brave CG with my DD (2) in December.

Hopefully, with CG pictures flashing on your screen-saver, maybe the power of suggestion will lead to dinner there after all.

For other readers, should anyone want a picture or two, you can PM me with a short list and your personal email - I send one a day so you can download and delete without overloading your email.

The non-DDP edition - 28 OCT 07

Well, I've said all along, you can never have too much California Grill. Maybe it just looks that way from the shores of Lake Erie in November (Edmund Fitzgerald weather the other day - extended, horizontal hail pellets)...

Anyway, we had the good fortune (and Disney Rewards card, Disney Dining Experience and $20 food gift card for staying at the ASMu, because there was NO VACANCY at the DVCs) one more time, starting with......

....the table







....with some bread and olive oil












....a lobster appetizer






....and Yoshe's Deluxe Sushi Platter











....with a Hidden Sushi Mickey!!!!








The buffalo steak was every bit as good as it looks







on the pretty plate






....and the halibut







Who knows when we will go again. The DDP isn't attractive to us next year, however it appears to have succeeded well on getting us hooked! Will add commentary on a near-future session.

Thanks (again!) for the beautiful CA Grill pictures! My favorite of this batch is the bread crust in olive oil, something simple but it looks so beautiful.

I love the hidden Mickey sushi! Do they always do that?

My favorite Dis'er is finally back. Ehagerty, you have absolutely the perfect eyes for taking food pictures. We will be doing the "Deluxe" DDP next July, so we plan to eat at CG twice during our stay.

Well, thank you for that! You are fortunate indeed to have plans already to dine there twice! Something to look forward to! And what happened to our Sabres!?!?! Toronto tonight!

Thank you so much for the photos! I've been following your CG reviews and your photos are amazing (and not just the food ones, I love the Japan shot in your signature!)

We're planning on making a CG ADR for next summer... your photos make the food look awesome!

Oh Ehagerty, What can I say! Our Sabres played their best games so far this season, and yet...you have no idea how much I hate the Maple Leaf....

The Latest?

Thanks for the report. We're trying CG for the first time in January. We're going to be on the deluxe dining plan and are trying lots of new places. On your latest trip there did you notice if the sushi was still on the appetizer list or if it's seperate now. The menues here have it seperate.
Thanks!

The sushi appeared on the dinner menu - can't recall the "heading" for the section - probably "sushi"! I don't know if they also have a separate sushi menu. I wasn't on the dining plan in Oct, but all previous DDP experiences you could order most of the listed sushi dishes as an appetizer (with the exception of Yoshe's Deluxe sushi platter and Snake in the Grass - which you can order as an entree)

Okay, I just had to stop in again to say, what wonderful pics you take of our favorite place! My DH and I are so excited for our Sept trip (in ten months!!!). We will be on the Deluxe plan (discounted with the bounceback) so we're going to Cali Grill & other 2 TS places. Can't wait! Again, thanks for all the beautiful pics to remember the Cali Grill! It's great.

Lucky for you!

What is "discounted with bounceback"? Is doesn't sound familiar to me.

The bounceback was offered in September for those that were staying on property to book for the following year either free dining, or discounted deluxe dining. So, we're booked for the Poly for 8 nights with discounted deluxe dining plan. It is about $32/day I think for an adult for the Deluxe Plan. We're thrilled & can't wait. Yay!

There is a whole thread on the restaurant Dining Plan board.

Thanks again for all the pics. My sister "smiller" (and my Cali Grill date this past September) is over tonight for Thanksgiving and I'm about to show her all your lovely pics.
