Two Walt Disney World restaurants have received “Best Restaurant” awards. The 2021 Orlando Dining Awards List by Orlando Magazine has awarded Raglan Road at Disney Springs and Citricos at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.
Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant received “Best Theme Park/Attractions Restaurant”. The magazine had this to say:
“Raglan Road at Disney Springs has consistently served a terrific mix of Irish pub favorites, like Fish & Chips, while also introducing diners to more contemporary dishes inspired by both local flavors and Emerald Isle influences. Recent additions include the Grilled Lollipop Pork Chop with spiced pineapple chutney, purple kale, parsley mashed potato and smoked butter sauce. Brunchers can sample the new Anglo Irish: Eggs Benedict with poached eggs, Irish ham and wilted spinach served atop brioche and topped with hollandaise. Daily entertainment, including musicians and dancers from Ireland, create a lively atmosphere in the antique-bedecked space.”
Citricos at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa received the “Best Classic Hotel Restaurant” award. The restaurant recently received an update inspired by Mary Poppins Returns and guests can dine underneath the lovely London sky.
Orlando Magazine raved about the new menu as well. “Chef Andres Mendoza has refocused the menu as well to celebrate the bounty of Florida within a framework of Mediterranean influences. Can’t-miss dishes include the Butter-poached Florida Cobia and a Short Rib done up in a delightful Guava Barbecue. For dessert, don’t even try to resist Pastry Chef Kristine Farmer’s Chocolate Torte. And the service? As impeccable as ever.”
