Once we heard that Wine Bar George was coming to Disney Springs, we couldn’t wait to see what the menu was going to be like. This week the Disney Parks Blog was able to sit down and check out a Wine Bar George Menu preview where they tried a few of the upcoming house specialties, and it all looks amazing!
If you aren’t familiar with Wine Bar George, it’s one of the many new additions coming to Disney Springs this Summer, and it’s being developed by Master Sommelier George Miliotes, a world-renown Wine Expert. Before we get into the menu, even the atmosphere is going to be awesome with terrace seating and breathtaking views of the Disney Springs waterfront.
Of course it’s going to have great wines with more than 130 selections being available by the ounce, glass or bottle, but there will also be many delicious small plates that you’ll pair up with your wine. Let’s take a look at a preview of the menu, but don’t do so on an empty stomach!
Two of the wines that were tried are: “Selbach-Oster, Bömer Riesling – dry, crisp, lush, and very food-friendly. Also Antinori Guado al Tasso – an incredible Super Tuscan made from the classic Bordeaux grapes with Cabernet Sauvignon as the star.”
Crispy Mac & Cheese Bites – I have a feeling this is going to be a favorite of mine just on the name alone. They are crispy cheesy bites, served with tomato nage and Pecorino, and are surprisingly light. It’s like eating a grilled cheese with tomato soup:
Porchetta Spiced Pork Cheeks – Porchetta is one of my favorite Italian meats and this sounds ridiculous as it’s served with a creamy three-cheese polenta and cooked long and slow to perfection. It also has orange gremolata taking this to another level:
The Big Board – I never say no to meat and cheese and this board has six artisan cheeses and five crafted meats, and is big enough to share with two or more people:
Grilled Octopus with Lemon Vinaigrette – This dish on the lighter side is made from tender pieces of Spanish octopus, which is first grilled and then chilled. What results is a very refreshing salad, highlighted by the acidic lemon vinaigrette dressing:
Grilled Whole Greek Sea Bass – Not all of the food will be “small plates”, there will even be some “family-style plates” including this whole Sea Bass. Described as light and tender, served with cannelloni bean ragoût and seasonal vegetables:
Olive Oil Cake – Olive Oil cakes are very popular in Italy and this one is served with candied olives and lemon mascarpone. I’m not usually a fan but this one looks intriguing:
Executive Chef Ron Rupert will be manning the kitchen at Wine Bar George and you gotta love his philosophy: “I want to create delicious food that pairs well with wine. I pull flavors from around the world that are relevant – that create memories.” Sounds like it’s going to be a truly memorable experience when it opens up later this year.
Still no opening date mentioned, but things are getting close and I expect it to be open in the next couple months. Stay tuned also for the full Wine Bar George which we’ll share as soon as it comes out!
This is just one of the many new additions to Disney Springs. Take a look at our latest Disney Springs Construction Report where we take a look at some of the other restaurants and experiences coming soon.
