I know this has been discussed, but I can't find the thread...

It is official: http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2010/04/front-row-seat-for-the-kitchen-at-new-chef%E2%80%99s-table-at-flying-fish-cafe/

And, I booked it for May! :cool1: During the same call, I was able to get Brown Derby for a Fantasmic "lunch" Package.

Long time lurker, first time poster jumping in here...

I'm a frequent (at least by WDW standards) visitor to Flying Fish, and first talked with Keith Gimbel (mentioned as the "sommelier" in the linked post, but he's really the Boardwalk area food and beverage manager, so he's rather more than just the sommelier) about his plans for the chef's counter back in February. Flying Fish has occasional wine dinners, where a particular vineyard's wines are spotlighted with a special menu. Since the wine dinners are geared more towards locals and regulars, the chef's counter seems like a way to offer this kind of an experience on an ongoing basis, and make use of the whole wine cellar. The sample menu mentioned in the linked post was the actual menu from the most recent wine dinner, which was this past Wednesday (4/14), and I'm the process of writing up a dining report for it. Everything was even better than it sounds; Chef Tim Keating was hitting home runs with every course.

It is the same as the dinner package, but at lunch time. I guess it is always available, but everyone (myself included) asks for "dinner." I tend to get into long conversations with my dining cast members and she asked, "Would you mind a lunch?" "Lunch? Sure, didn't know I could." So I have a 1:30 ADR a month out after calling since January. Basically, you book the Fantasmic meal and get a ticket to Fantasmic so you do not have to wait in the line (as long.) It is a very hot ticket since they decreased the number of shows.

I had read about the occasional special dinners, but they were never available when I was. We eat at FFC every trip and I am very excited about this meal! I'll be looking for you review. Thanks!

Wondering how the service was at the chef's dinner. They say it's an enhanced experience. I ate at Flying Fish in February and while I love the place, and the food was excellent, the service was terrible.

So what are the first 6 seats at the chef's counter? Does anyone have any pictures?
