valentine's day

February is the month of love and this Valentine’s Day weekend the Disneyland Resort has some tasty foods and beverages to help you celebrate! Carthay Circle Restaurant at Disney California Adventure even has a new seasonal menu and special Valentine’s Day dinner.

One way to make this weekend extra magical is to book a reservation at Carthay Circle Restaurant for their Sweetheart Dinner for Two on February 13th or 14th. The meal includes three courses: lobster and asparagus to start; Steak Florentine for two (Grilled Porterhouse of Chianti Beef) with sautéed Brussels sprouts, parsnips and bacon and roasted fingerling potatoes with Brie; and Chocolate Hearts for Two for dessert with chocolate espresso and white chocolate raspberry served tableside with warm chocolate sauce. Delicious! This meal costs $140 plus tax and gratuity.

The menu includes items on the lunch menu such as Winter Pozole with Tempura Fried Shrimp, Grilled Turkey Scaloppini, a Crispy Maple Leaf Duck Confit Salad and savory Moroccan Lamb Meatballs. On the seasonal dinner menu is Carthay Shellfish Cioppino, Artichoke Crepes, Braised Lamb Shank with Winter Bean Cassoulet and Angus Beef Delmonico with chipotle sweet potatoes.
