Executive Chef Ron Rupert will be at the helm of all things culinary at the upcoming Wine Bar George, and today, he’s shared a sneak peek at what guests can look forward to seeing on the menu when the location opens its doors at Disney Springs.
Rupert’s philosophy is a simple one.
“I want to create delicious food that pairs well with wine. I pull flavors from around the world that are relevant – that create memories.”
Take a look at this sneak peek at some of his dishes (with descriptions quoted from Disney Parks Blog)!
The Big Board – An impressive selection of six artisan cheeses and five crafted meats that serves two or more.
Olive Oil Cake – This moist cake with a rich olive oil flavor is served with candied olives and lemon mascarpone.
Grilled Whole Greek Sea Bass – One of the “family-style plates” that serves two or more, this light and tender whole fish is served with cannelloni bean ragoût and seasonal vegetables.
Porchetta Spiced Pork Cheeks – Served with a creamy three-cheese polenta, these small bites of meaty goodness are cooked long and slow to perfection. The orange gremolata takes it over the top.
Crispy Mac & Cheese Bites – These crispy cheesy bites are surprisingly light. Served with tomato nage and Pecorino, they are Ron’s imaginative take on a grilled cheese with tomato soup.
Grilled Octopus with Lemon Vinaigrette – This light and refreshing salad has tender pieces of Spanish octopus (a result of grilling then chilling the octopus) with a touch of acidity from the lemon vinaigrette.
Guests can expect something special when Wine Bar George opens; which will hopefully an opening date will be announced soon along with the full menu!
