DIS Unplugged reviewers rave about new Be Our Guest prix fixe menu
Hmmmmm, we’ve had our doubts about trying this due to often so-so food and service at BOG over the years since its opening.
I’m hoping these reviewers’ experience wasn’t beginners’ luck since they ate the new menu on its very first night. Their descriptions of the food sound really appealing although I’m a bit put off by piled bread crumbs with parmesan cheese on escargot. To me, garlic butter and parsley, yes, but parmesan would compete with the escargot. Don’t knock it not having tried it, I suppose.
The kids’ dessert is a clever idea that would be fun, IMO, although seeming a bit of a cheat that only adults get the white chocolate Chip lookalike cup. If I were a kid, I’d be super disappointed that my cup wasn’t Chip but a plain one I had to paint.
I saw a written review....charred octopus? Urp, no thanks!
But the filet and the desserts look good.
I don't get how a $55 meal takes two dining credits, though. Definitely one to pay out of pocket if you're running low on those--I don't do the dining plans, but this just strikes me as a bad value at two credits per person.
No seafood other than a bouillabaise strikes me as a massive costcutter, especially when it contains so few varieties of seafood with potatoes. Potatoes?? Sounds like cheap filler to me.
I was shocked by the lack of fish offerings, if I'm honest. They could have done so many good dishes, but I am beginning to wonder if Disney aren't catering to the traditional signature restaurant diner and rather are relying on the fact that Be Our Guest is a huge draw because of its setting and is hard to get in and therefore they're banking on the fact that people will pay whatever just to try it out.
