As many of you know the Flying Fish Cafe has been closed for a full refurbishment for the past few months. There are a lot of guests that were sad to see this classic Seafood eatery down for the count. Well the wait is almost over. Flying Fish is Opening late summer with a New Name, New Chef and New Cocktail Lounge right next door. They have removed the word Cafe from the name. So it is now going to be called the Flying Fish when it opens with a new classy sophisticated look.
One of the chefs who has been working at the Flying Fish for the past five years is stepping up to take over the kitchen. Some of the new items on the menu may be as follows: They are still testing the waters before the reopening. You may see a classic seared yellow fin tuna served with compressed watermelon (with a hint of Tahitian lime oil and fresh limes), paper-thin avocado slices, crisp radishes, pickled daikon and a small edible viola flower on top. A drizzle of blood orange oil is all it needs.
Sustainable fish will be the star of the new menu, and Majoras’ new Fruits of the Sea appetizer features rock shrimp and clams from Florida, grouper cheek, mussels, a splash of Brandy and a rich lobster stock. The seafood is served over a generous dollop of velvety celery root puree with adds a depth of flavor to the dish. Simple flavors, a deft touch in the kitchen.
After the renovation is complete there will be a brand new kitchen and dining room (with expanded space for private dining events), sparkling architectural accents, like golden-winged room panels and an impressive chandelier that mimics a school of flying fish swimming overhead.
The new AbracadaBar exudes the finest of Disney storytelling and theming, so look for whimsy in the design According to WDI, the lounge was once a secret stomping ground for famous touring magicians, local boardwalk illusionists and the loveliest magician’s assistants of the day. After every magic show, gathering at the bar, where they’d conjure up new cocktails, swap magic tips and tricks, and often stay up all night attempting to “out-charm” each other with their extraordinary illusions.
I am heading to Walt Disney World this summer and staying at Disney’s Beach Club and looking forward to enjoying a cocktail at AbracadaBar. So if you are looking for a little fun and adventure now is the time to plan your next family vacation to Walt Disney World.
