As a reminder, the California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort will be going down for a lengthy refurbishment starting tomorrow, February 1.
When the space reopens, it will be completely refreshed, featuring tones of grays, whites, and light wood, with sporadic pops of color. The space will also feature a wall of wines and of course, those views aren’t going anywhere. Guests will still be able to dine with the Magic Kingdom in the background.
In addition to the newly updated design, the menu will also be seeing a bit of a revamp. For those who love the sushi, new sushi options will be available like the spicy kaza roll with tuna, shrimp, and scallops with tempura and fireball sauce. Another new version of sushi will be the sea urchin nigiri with soybean paper, salmon roe, and grated wasabi root.
Guests will also get to dine on a 24 hour braised beef short rib served with natural jus, as well as truffle mashed potatoes and a puff pastry with roasted vegetables. Another option will be Pork Two Ways with wood fired tenderloin along with goat cheese polenta and braised pork belly served with country applesauce.
The restaurant is expected to reopen this summer.
