We left DTD and went back to the resort to relax before dinner. I am not getting the best cell reception up here and my family was calling me like crazy to wish me HBD so I was on the phone for a while....consoling my poor mother because she is so depressed that she is the mother of a 40 year old!

We drove over to Citrico's and arrived a bit early so we had a drink in the lounge. Todd had the Citromopolitan and I had and apple martini..both were fantastic!











It was nice to sit and chat and have a drink...about 20 minutes later we were seated by the window...very nice!











We have been to Citrico's many times and it is always amazing food wise and service wise. Tonight was just as wonderful!

Grain bread and kalamata olive bread with butter topped with citrus sea salt. I didnt have any but DH liked the olive bread



We shared the caesar salad...the kitchen split is for us. Very good but a little too heavy on the lemon






After all these trips I finally tried the shrimp with the feta cheese and tomatoes. I dont get what the rave reviews are about...there was hardly any feta or tomatoes in this dish and the shrimp was way over cooked. Not my favorite but DH said it was ok. Honestly I prefer the Saucy Shrimp at Bone Fish Grill.



Todd had the Corn Soup and I thought it was incredible but he said he prefers the chunky, thick, potato loaded corn chowder. Didnt stop him from finishing it all though!



I had no clue what to order, it all sounded wonderful..

Me: So you are getting the short ribs and I ...(this is where I am interrupted)

Todd: Whaddaya mean I am getting the short ribs?

Me: You have been here 4 times before and have always ordered them, you mentioned you wanted Citricos for the short ribs, you told me earlier that you were getting them soooo....bingo, you are getting short ribs

Todd: What if I want chicken?

Me: Do you want chicken?

Todd: No, I want short ribs...I just want to keep you on your toes in your old age

Yeah, as if I need any more help from him This is the same man that woke me up with a good morning grandma and is taking great pleasure in reminding everyone that he is still in his 30's!

So he ordered the short ribs with mushrooms and pasta and he cleaned the plate. The meat was amazingly tender and so flavorful...yup he gave me a bite or two, thats love for ya!



I opted for the pork tenderloin with pork belly and subbed out the polenta for veggies. The tenderloin was very tender but I didnt like the seasonings on it so I put some of Todd's sauce on it...much better. The pork belly was phenomenal! The brussel sprouts were nasty...too much smoked flavoring. I was in love with the escarole and zucchini but not a fan of the peppers or turnips. Wish I asked for double escarole and no sprouts...ah next time I will know better



We were both too full for dessert so we shared a pot of coffee and our server brought out a treat for us to share...I didnt want it so Todd ate it and said it was cute but not tasty. Coffee on the other hand was wonderful!

As we were sitting there sipping our coffee we had a "what are we doing" conversation...went a little like this

Me: So we are eating at Kona tomorrow morning

Todd: Oh good, I love that place

Me: Yeah, um, what are we doing after?

Todd: I dont know yet

Me: Well do you want to go to the pool, a movie, a park?

Todd: I will let you know

Me: When, tonight?

Todd: Now where is the fun in that?

Me: Aw come on...you going to spring this on me tomorrow at breakfast?

Todd: Maybe, jeez you are getting very impatient in your old age

Me: Living with you will do that to a girl

Todd: Ok, fine, I will tell you at breakfast

Me: Ok, fine.....are we driving to Kona or taking a cab

Todd: Dont know yet

Me: GRRRRRRRR

Todd: Whats the weather like tomorrow

Me: Do I look like Al Roker to you?

Todd: No, you have purple hair silly

Me: Whats the weather have to do with what we do tomorrow?

Todd: Well a cold front is coming through

Me: 84 is a cold front?

Todd: It might be a nice day for AK, since thats a hot park

Me: So we are going to AK

Todd: Dont know yet

This is where I said "CHECK PLEASE!"

As we were leaving the GF the traffic was so backed up within the resort and there were police lights everywhere. Sat in a line of cars and buses for 30 minutes. We see helicopters, cops on motorcycles, state troopers, fire trucks, security everywhere. And still we sit. Turns out it was just Joe Biden driving through. It was fun just sitting there talking to the people waiting to move though, helped move the time along.

So here I am, in my room, updating you all and my hubby is snoring his brains out....and I still have no idea what we are doing tomorrow! Your guess is as good as mine! Until then, goodnight all!

Is there actually a dish on the Citricos menu called "Side Dish"? I'd order it anyway, but still.

I hope tomorrow' plans work out, and hopefully there will be several more standout dishes to come (like the short ribs)!

Wow! You are a knockout! Todd looks like Bobby Flay. O.o :P

Citrico's looked uh-may-zing!! I want to eat there some day. That shrimp dish sounded so delicious. Bummer that it was a miss.

Have lots of fun! Remember you're vacationing for like 50 people here.

I love smooth creamy soups (but I don't like chowder) so that soup looks delicious to me! Sorry the shrimp disappointed though!

HAPPY DAY AFTER YOUR BIRTHDAY, NICKI! Geez you and Todd are such a photogenic couple, you look like a Sandals ad! If we run into you at POFQ and snap a pic together only DH and I will look like folks who would be writing Disney dining reviews online!

Thank you! I love meat, Texas de Brazil totally does it right! DH loved the blueberry pancakes, he said they were fluffy and loaded with blueberries. The ham was outstanding, we had alot of that...hope its the same at Tusker House next week.

I know right, I never saw that on the menu before...just wished it was the escarole because that was fantastic. So far I moved our Kona back an hour because the King is still asleep. How can one sleep in WDW?

Aw shucks, you are making me blush! LOL about Todd and Flay...wish he could cook like Bobby but he cannot even heat up leftovers I think the shrimp would have been alot better if it wasnt so overcooked.

Citrico's looks so amazing. I really want to try that place sometime. The shrimp looked really good. To bad they looked better than they tasted.

And, 40 looks good on you. Glad you had such an enjoyable day. Can't wait to read about your adventures of today.
