Disney Springs — the dining and entertainment complex inside the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Flor. — will soon be home to an upscale steakhouse and seafood restaurant. As first reported by Eater Chicago, it's called The Boathouse and features "waterfront dining with a nautical theme." The menu — which lists steaks, chops, seafood, and even a raw bar — is not cheap. The Disney Food Blog notes that while the menu and prices have not been listed on the restaurant's website, they are currently available in the My Disney Experience app.
There are dishes like a bone-in filet mignon for $49, a Berkshire pork chop for $27, and even a "tomahawk long bone rib chop for two" for $115. The seafood-heavy menu also includes options like a surf and turf deal for four, coriander seared tuna, and salmon served on a cedar plank. Other plates offered include coconut frogs legs, a $24 crab cake, a $17 side of shrimp mac and cheese, and a s'mores baked Alaska for four. When not dining, customers will have the chance to take tours of the Disney Springs area in amphicars. The Boathouse is slated to open April 13.
There's a growing number of restaurants setting up shop in Disney Springs. Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto revealed in October that he is opening a two-story pan-Asian restaurant called Morimoto Asia in 2015. It will include Peking duck carving and dim sum and there will be a cocktail lounge. Disney Springs is also home to a vegan and gluten-free bakery from baker Erin McKenna of BabyCakes NYC. At Erin McKenna's Bakery NYC she sells doughnuts, cupcakes, and even bagels with vegan butter.
