Stella's Take

Here is my take:

Journaling reads:

The best meal we have ever had has to be when we went to Victoria and Albert's at Disney World's Grand Floridian hotel. The atmosphere was refined, elegant and relaxing. The service was impeccable and the food, was absolutely fabulous and exotic.

Christian had Dungeness and King Crab with Spring Asparagus and Calvisius Caviar to start. Long Island Duck with Roaset Chiogga Beets and Turnip Kraut, then Seared Wild Turbot with Toasted Capers and Meyer Lemon, Herb Crusted Lamb with Heirloom Tomatoes and Potato Gnocchi. Comte Saint Antonie, Fourme D'ambert and Pierre Robert for the cheese course. For dessert, Pyramid of Tanzanie Dark Chocolate Mousse.

Stella had Seared Colorado Buffalo Tenderloin, Braised Fennel, Raishes and Satsuma Tangerine Vinaigrette to start. Pan Roasted Foie Gras and Fuji Apple Tart with Mostarda di Cremona, then Yellow Fin Tuna Tempura with Hijiki Salad and Carrot-Ginger Coulis for the fish course. Then, Herb Crusted Lamb with Heirloom Tomatoes and Potato Gnocchi. For the cheese course, Comte Saint Antoine, Fourme D'Ambert, and Pierre Robert. For dessert, Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee.

From beginning to end, a fabulous meal. Not a bite that was not enjoyed! The wine pairing was fantastic and certainly intoxicating. The presentation of the "Celebes" coffee was extraordinary. To top it all off, at the end of the meal we met the Chef de Cuisine, Scott Hunnel. We certainly can't wait to go back and experience it all again.
