Narcoossee’s, which made its debut in 1988, is reopening in a venue that has just been renovated and makes the most of the restaurant’s outstanding location and expansive views of Seven Seas Lagoon. Cast members will greet visitors as they arrive, and they will see cerulean details and artwork that will take them from land to sea.
The redesigned restaurant honors the history of culinary excellence at Grand Floridian with a contemporary twist, with a new décor and a variety of new menu items inspired by the cuisine of Florida and the southeast coast.
For visitors of all ages, Narcoossee’s features a variety of alternatives, from responsibly harvested fish to creative dishes from the land, including both meat- and plant-based options.
The menu also includes brand-new items including a charcuterie board with an oceanic theme, beef and ricotta tortelloni, roasted vegetable paella, and blackened redfish. In addition, bisque, plancha-seared scallops, and quality New York strip steak are perennial favorites.
But what is supper if not followed by a drink and dessert? The restaurant provides a selection of cocktails with Victorian influences, zero-proof drinks, and a carefully chosen wine list that is meant to go with each course.
Almond-crusted Cheesecake with Lambert cherry sauce and Chantilly cream is one of the dessert alternatives, but there are also more recent dessert options like the Berry Pavlova, which combines Florida berries and citrus with a bright yuzu cremeux and anglaise that is poured at the table.
The Grand Floridian Resort & Spa has undergone a multi-year transformation, which includes the reopening of Narcoossee’s. Dining reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance, but during the months of May and June, the restaurant will be closed due to ongoing construction.
