Citricos at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa will be hosting a “Brunch with a Twist” on February 11. The brunch was recently featured at the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival and was popular enough to bring back and add as a regular event.
Several of the resort’s chefs, including Executive Chef Scott Hunnel, Chef Dominique Filoni, Chef Noah Estabrook, Chef Nick Mussara, Chef Lawrence Searl, and Executive Pastry Chef Erich Herbitschek, have created the menu for the five-course brunch.
Guests will be able to watch the chefs in the on-stage kitchen, and even ask questions while they cook. Each course will be paired with a different champagne.
