Opening is set for late summer for Flying Fish restaurant at Disney’s Boardwalk (yes, “Cafe” goes away as part of the name), and diners will be welcomed to an upscale interior that pays homage to the golden era of seaside boardwalks.
Chef Tim Majoras, who was has been on the Flying Fish team since 2011, takes the helm in the kitchen, and the team behind the Disney Parks Blog met with him at Disney’s Flavor Lab to see what’s cooking for the new menu. 

The menu will include seared yellow fin tuna served with compressed watermelon (with a hint of Tahitian lime oil and fresh limes), paper-thin avocado slices, crisp radishes, pickled daikon and a small edible viola flower on top. A drizzle of blood orange oil is all it needs.

Sustainable fish will be the star of the new menu, and Majoras’ new Fruits of the Sea appetizer features rock shrimp and clams from Florida, grouper cheek, mussels, a splash of Brandy and a rich lobster stock. The seafood is served over a generous dollop of velvety celery root puree with adds a depth of flavor to the dish. Simple flavors, a deft touch in the kitchen.

Stig Jacobsen, general manager and sommelier at Flying Fish, says he is happy with expanded space for wine storage and is “finding gems” for a more in-depth wine list.

The interior features an all-new kitchen and dining room (with expanded space for private dining events), sparkling architectural accents, like golden-winged room panels and an impressive chandelier that mimics a school of flying fish swimming overhead. Next door, the new AbracadaBar lounge opens, taking the spot formerly occupied by the candy and ice-cream shop.

The new cocktail lounge combines the Golden Age of Magic with the magic of Disney storytelling, so look for whimsy in the design from the Walt Disney Imagineering (WDI) team, who create stories in true Disney fashion.

The menu sounds good but the decor looks like a Austin Powers movie.
