Carthay Circle Restaurant

Andrew Sutton, the Executive Chef of the Napa Rose restaurant in Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa oversaw the menu creation at Carthay Circle Restaurant, and Gloria Tae, Chef Sutton's protege, is the chef de cuisine. The menu touches on a range of international flavors, and the dining room is wonderfully detailed, with several rooms that can accommodate large parties. The outdoor seating on the terrace affords a nice bird's-eye view of the parade during the day, or a wonderful view of the Disneyland fireworks in the evening. Preferred viewing of World of Color is also available when a qualifying meal is purchased.
