Yet, there are some restaurants that we just can not miss on our trips! (luckily they are not the Signatures!! )

It's gone downhill a lot! I almost wish I couldn't remember how good it used to be.

Sadly, I think we like the signatures somewhat. Yachtsman, Jiko, and Brown Derby are still go to restaurants. Will try Artist Point for the first time this October.

Still a few good ones for us - Trails End breakfast, Turf Club was great and I still like Chefs de France. And I really want to try Flying Fish and Kouzzina as well.

We did the Chef wine pairing dinner at Flying Fish last year, it was during F&W but not a F&W event, we LOVED it..

Laura I am working on ADR and plans. If you don't mind me asking what are your restaurants that can't be missed? We have reserved several new (to us) places.

Brandi we are doing Flying Fish for the first time. However I was told by BC IPO that the chefs wine dinner was a counter service????? Is that correct?

Our favorite spots are signature. And, until (and if) Bob can eat again, I don't plan on going there alone. So, we will play with the cards we have been dealt and love every minute of it!!

We love Yachtsman (may possibly go to the Crew's Cup and do a few things that are on the two menus). Love Flying Fish and Narcoossee's and Citrico's. But they will wait.

Ann, our not-to-be-missed restaurants have nothing to do with the food, but with the family memories we have and continue to make there!!

Biergarten is number one on our list for that reason!! 50s Prime Time is also on that list! (see? definitely not about the food! ) Boma, Rose & Crown, Narcoossees and LeCellier round out the list!

Great attitude, Elin!

I have only eaten at Yachtsman once and was not impressed. I may have to try it again (from Crews Cup! )


When the paid events are released, I am hoping to book a Food & Wine (or Beer & Pizza) pairing. It will be interesting to see how expensive things get this year! I also plan to book a couple deminars -- one wine and one culinary since this is JD's first F&WF trip! Of course, if all we did was hit The Ditch every day, JD would be content!!

I will be waiting to see what the prices are like this year too. I have to admit that I would LOVE to do a French Regional Lunch (Frunch) if the price doesn't go up too much. Bob would not be interested in that anyway, so no guilty pleasure in doing that!

We have had "hit or miss" meals just about everywhere on property, so we usually just decide what we think we will be hungry for in 6 months and roll those dice!

Maybe we could do the Frunch as a Ladies afternoon out! JD wouldn't be interested in it either!

Ann
Ann, it is a full service dinner, and the chef comes out and explains eat course and the wine steward comes out and explains the wine pairing, now you are seated at a bar overlooking the kitchen, much like the "Cooking Place" at Jiko. You can talk to all the chefs while dinner is being prepared. I am pretty sure I have pictures in my last TR, it was a wonderful dinner and everyone was so nice and helpful.

So we ate at Yachtsman this past October, and we were not impressed either, I think it was worst meal we had there and I vowed never to return.

Sounds like JD and David could just hang at the Ditch and be happy!

I really liked Yachtsman when we went there a couple years ago and the Brown Derby has also been one of our favorites. We love Flying Fish and the one time we went to Kouzzina, it was very good. We are also going to try Artist Point for the first time this October trip.

I definitely want to do a Frunch, we had to cancel one of those when we canceled our trip last year. They are normally on Fridays and Sunday, so I'm hoping to do the one on the 14th of October. I haven't booked my Classic Tickets yet. I should check that out. but with doing that Friday night, I don't want to be completely full from a large lunch.

Now we just have to hope for it to work with our schedule. I'm not sure how Friday or Sunday would work for Elin or me, especially since we're doing the Classic both Friday & Saturday nights. We'll have to wait until the schedule is released to see if it's doable.
