CELEBRITY chefs Jose An­dres and Wolf­gang Puck will be open­ing new restau­rants at Walt Dis­ney World Re­sort in Florida, the United States, for vis­i­tors with more grown-up tastes.

Set to open in 2018, both restau­rants will open at Dis­ney Springs, the park’s out­door shop­ping, re­tail, en­ter­tain­ing and din­ing com­plex.

An­dres will open a Dis­ney out­post of his restau­rant Ja­leo, which serves Span­ish cui­sine like paella, cooked over a wood fire, and tapas.

Cur­rently, there are five Ja­leos across the US and Mex­ico City. The Dis­ney lo­ca­tion is slated to be the big­gest Ja­leo restau­rant, with mul­ti­ple floors, and the first open­ing in Florida.

Chef to the stars Wolf­gang Puck will also be join­ing An­dres at Dis­ney Springs. At Wolf­gang Puck Bar and Grill, guests will tuck into Cal­i­for­nia-style, Mediter­ranean din­ing in an el­e­gant farm­house set­ting. The menu will fea­ture com­fort foods and hand-crafted drinks.

Other up­com­ing open­ings in­clude a new Ital­ian restau­rant helmed by Top Chef Master chef Tony Man­tu­ano and a new wine bar with over 100 selec­tions by the bot­tle and glass.

A 1920s-era “In­dus­trial Gothic” restau­rant and bar The Edi­son will also fea­ture con­tor­tion­ists, aeri­al­ists and DJs.

Dis­ney has been up­ping their din­ing game in re­cent years. Ear­lier this year, Disneyland in Cal­i­for­nia opened an ex­clu­sive din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence at 21 Royal, where for US$15,000 (RM 64,216), you and 11 friends can re­live the kind of swish din­ner party that Dis­ney founder Walt and wife Lillian would have hosted in their pri­vate res­i­dence. — AFP Relaxnews
