The Downtown Disney area at Walt Disney World has undergone a reboot. It’s now called Disney Springs—and it is filled with high-end retail and more new restaurants than you can believe. Based on the suggestions from the in-the-know people at Travel + Leisure, let’s take a look at some of the most delicious new dining spots. If you weren’t hungry before, you will be by the end of this post!
The Daily Poutine
Who knew you could get Poutine so many ways? The menu offers the Canadian classic (French fries, gravy, cheese) as well as mouthwatering variations like “Latin Poutine” with fried yucca, black beans, pulled pork and queso fresco. Mmmm.
They have an 11-layer cake, according to Travel + Leisure. ELEVEN. According to the menu, you can also enjoy eclairs, New York-style cheesecake, cookies, gluten-free macarons and signature cakes, which you can watch chefs decorate. And, of course, there are little cakes designed to look like a certain mouse. If you want that 11-layer cake, they need 72 hours for this magnificent creation, which combines layers of red velvet, chocolate chiffon, chocolate mousse, cherry mousse, raspberry pâte de fruit and Italian buttercream.
B.B. Wolf’s Sausage Company
Visit B.B. Wolf’s for artisan sausages with interesting topping combos like braised red cabbage and spicy brown mustard. We’re particularly intrigued by the “3 Little Pigs Sampler,” a trio of mini-dogs—one wrapped in bacon, another dressed like a Reuben and a third topped with black bean salsa and chili cheese.
The sweet and savory crepes offered here sound irresistible. On the sweet side, try the s’mores crepe (marshmallow creme, chocolate sauce and graham cracker crumbs) or the strawberries Romanoff crepe (whipped cream, sour cream, sugar and brandy.) Or, make a meal out of it with savory offerings like the beef crepe (horseradish cream, pickled red onion, baby spinach and sharp cheddar) and the smoked salmon crepe (cream cheese, capers, onion and “everything bagel” topping).
Want upscale dining after a day in the Magic Kingdom? The updated Disney Springs now includes the STK Steakhouse, featuring an innovative menu, in-house DJ and a stunning outdoor patio. Of course, fine dining comes with a price tag to match ($35 to $60 per adult), and here’s what they have on the menu.
Sprinkles Cupcake ATM
Last, but certainly not least, is the Sprinkles Cupcake ATM. You walk up to a computerized machine, swipe your credit card, and out pops your choice of cupcake. This really is the happiest place on Earth!
