New Menu Debuts
The new Three- Course Menu features the best and tastiest offerings of California cuisine.
There is a delicious assortment of new offerings, and you select one from each category to enjoy: Market Inspirations, Chef’s Journey, and Sweet Creations.
Here is what MickeyBlog tried!
A Delicious Start
Get ready for a delicious 3-course meal bursting with flavor.
Our experience started with the amazing bread service!
We indulged in delicious sourdough bread and a mushroom, olive oil, and sun-dried tomato blend with garlic!
Our MickeyBlog reporter shared, “This is so yummy and delicate! Amazing as it should be. It is really fluffy and yummy sourdough bread.”
The perfect way to start your meal.
We selected the Sonoma Goat Cheese Ravioli featuring Basil-Saffron Pasta, Tomato Broth, Mushroom Ragoût, and Fennel.
Frequent visitors may remember this item on the old menu, but the fan-fave has retuned and is re-imagined slightly.
What did our MikeyBlog reporter Jessie have to say?
“The mushrooms are very delicate, and they taste very similar to a meat texture and have a salty finish. it’s a super pretty with the green and white pasta noodle– the goat cheese is sweet-and-sour but again more on the subtle side which is lovely, and blends really well with the light tomato sauce that is in. It is a very subtle olive oil, tasting tomato sauce, and quite watery not thick at all.”
Our second selection was the Saffron Risotto featuring Harissa-Honey Nut Squash and
Spiced Hummus Chermoula.
This new eat is slightly cheesy and subtly sweet! It was an amazing combination of textures and flavors.
The smaller pieces of bread on top were perfect and the honey nut puree added to the over all flavor.
“The Spiced Hummus Chermoula really adds a nice spice, especially when you mix it in to the dish, but it’s not too overpowering. It just gives a little bit of a tomato-spice kick! The saffron is a very prominent flavor in this as well so you do have to like saffron in order to enjoy this dish.”
The Decadent Desserts
And the best part of every meal! Let’s dive in to the dessert.
There are plenty of tasty options but we selected the Peanut and Banana Tortre.
This fantastic new sweet features a soft shortbread Peanut Ganache, Miso Caramel
Nut Crumble and sweet Caramelized Bananas.
The dessert is a delicious plant-based option that was a unique combo of textures and flavors. Definitely a stand-out for the MickeyBlog team.
“The actual torte is very peanut buttery with that shortbread cookie underneath, so it gives you that sandwich feel.The caramelized bananas with it are absolutely incredible, but you do need to scoop it with the peanut butter shortbread torte or else it can be a bit overwhelming.
You can taste the caramel in just a little bit as it’s very subtle.” Thanks Jessie!
