Have you ever had a meal that blew your mind, so much so that all other food pretty much sucks for a while afterwards? Yeah that’s how this meal went.
The Napa Rose Grill is located in the Grand Californian hotel at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, I know what you’re thinking… there’s a crazy high end restaurant hidden away in a hotel in ANAHEIM? The answer is yes, and it’s fucking awesome, This isn’t the standard meal you’ll get at the Napa Rose however, this is from the chef’s counter. The chef’s counter is truly a one-of-a-kind experience, you get a front row view of the entire kitchen and either chef Andrew Sutton, or his chef de cuisine ask you about your food preferences, and favorite flavor profiles. Once they get all the info they need, you’ll be treated to a completely custom made for you meal according to your chat… how amazing is that?
After meeting with the chef, or chef de cuisine, your seven course meal is underway! They offer an additional wine pairing to go along with your food, but seriously you will not have any room in your stomach to guzzle wine in addition to eating all of the food, trust me. We went to the bar before dinner, and had a custom cocktail made, and that was more than enough to sip on during the meal.
Plate after plate will soon come out, and you and the few diners also seated at the chef’s counter will squeal with delight at every single course guaranteed.
Don’t let the online reviews fool you, while getting a reservation might be difficult on some days, we were able to book two seats at the counter about two hours before dinner service, and there were two empty seats next to us. Writing this out is making me really hungry, and now my stomach is weeping at the fact that I will have to wait a little longer until I get to eat a meal this extravagant again.
