My celebration of two spent $150 at Disney World's steakhouse Le Cellier, and it was completely value it

I stay close to Disney World, and after I desire a steak, Le Cellier is my first alternative.

Le Cellier Steakhouse is situated in Epcot.

Over 5 years in the past, I moved to Orlando to stay nearer to Disney World. As a foodie, there’s all the time one thing new to attempt, however there are some theme-park eating places I go to again and again. 

Le Cellier Steakhouse within the Canada Pavilion at Epcot is not the simplest reservation to attain. However I all the time maintain my eyes peeled when family and friends are coming to city or I am planning a meal for an important day. 

I used to be fortunately in a position to get a reservation for 2 for my birthday dinner. 

It is very small, however that is among the finest components about it.

Le Cellier is a fairly small and intimate restaurant.

When the park opened in 1982, Le Cellier was only a themed wine cellar. It was later transformed right into a small Canadian-inspired cafeteria, and it did not get a steakhouse menu till 1997.

Because the area wasn’t designed to be a restaurant, it is not practically as massive as different eating areas at Disney World. Scoring a reservation will be tough, however the dim lighting and comfy tables are all a part of the small area’s allure. 

Like all good signature eating expertise, Le Cellier serves scrumptious bread and beloved appetizers.

The bread basket comes with three differing types — two freshly baked rolls and the showstopping pretzel bread. 

The pretzel bread is completely browned and salted on the surface and fluffy on the within. It is scrumptious by itself or dipped into the Canadian cheddar-cheese soup ($13). 

The thick and wealthy soup is creamy and decadent to the final chew. With thick bites of fatty bacon, sharp cheddar, and a little bit of hoppy taste from the beer, it has been a fan favourite for years, and it is to not be missed.

There’s scrumptious poutine out within the Canada Pavilion at Epcot, however it would not maintain a candle to the signature poutine ($14) served at Le Cellier. 

The french fries are hand-cut, golden brown, and completely salted, they usually’re topped with squeaky Canadian cheddar-cheese curds. The server then pours a velvety and scrumptious red-wine discount excessive. Every mouthful is squeaky, tacky, crispy, fried perfection.

Every meal comes with incredible sides, however I recommend ordering the Brussels sprouts.

Brussels sprouts went from being what appeared like America’s most hated vegetable to a tried and true basic at steakhouses.

So long as they’re on the menu at Le Cellier, I will be ordering the sprouts ($10). 

The standard facet dish turns into much more of a star with the restaurant’s signature whiskey-maple glaze. The sprouts take in the wealthy and barely candy sauce and are roasted to perfection.

The primary course is best than I might anticipate from a theme park.

Theme-park steak won’t sound like one thing value spending over $50 on, however I promise it’s right here.

Every steak dish on the menu is nicely thought out with fascinating sides like bread pudding made with pretzel bread and Canadian cheddar-cheese bread. I like that every steak can also be topped with one thing completely different.

My celebration opted for the rib-eye steak ($60), and it was melt-in-your-mouth scrumptious. The onion-cognac gravy pushed this dish excessive.

I ordered the nice and cozy pecan tart for dessert.

The nice and cozy pecan-brown-butter tart ($14) was as scrumptious because it was lovely.

The crisp tart crust is crammed with thick brown butter and pecans, and it is topped with maple ice cream, brown-sugar anglaise, and whisky caramel.

Each chew combines massive textures and flavors — the crunch of the crust and the nuts, the sticky candy filling and sauce, and the heat of the tart with the coolness of the ice cream. 

By the top, we have been fairly full, however we may nonetheless eat a moose.

At this level, I could not think about consuming one other morsel — till a tiny chocolate-mousse moose arrived on the desk for my birthday. 

It is constructed from ethereal, chocolaty mousse, and it is an lovable deal with to remedy any after-dinner cravings. 

This merchandise is not on the menu and it could’t be ordered, so it is but another excuse to come back to Le Cellier once you’re celebrating.
