On our DTD/resort day, I had booked a latish lunch at ADR for 2pm at Storyteller's Cafe at the Grand Californian. Before our trip I got a call from a chef which is where I got a bunch of my brand info. I knew ahead of time that there would be bread and pizza crust options for DD12 but not for DD15 (DD15 doesn't have these options anywhere outside of our own home so this wasn't a surprise). I was disappointed that there wasn't a dessert option besides sorbet but the chef said he'd talk to the pastry chef at the resort to see if he could come up with anything. I wasn't counting on it but I was hopeful. We arrived about 15 minutes before our ADR time and it was nice and quiet. We were seated fairly quickly. There weren't many occupied tables around us which was nice and it remained that way the entire time we were there. By the end of our meal there was nobody else on our side of the restaurant. Our server introduced himself and I made sure he knew about our allergies. He said he would get a chef for us and took our drink orders. The chef came out within a couple of minutes. He was very friendly and went over our options with us. I confirmed that they didn't have any non-dairy cheese and asked about the bread options to confirm what I was told by phone. I hadn't mentioned the pizza crusts to DD12 because I didn't think she'd want one without cheese. When the chef mentioned it, she became torn about what to order. She really wanted the pizza crust but also wanted a hamburger. The chef came up with the perfect solution. He said he would send out pizza crusts as our bread since they serve bread to every table. Boy was she happy about that. We ended up ordering seconds and when the chef came out later she asked if she could get yet another order. The chef asked if she wanted it for the restaurant or to go and boy did she light up at that offer. So, the chef brought us another plate plus a to go pizza box with another one. It really was yummy. The chef heated it I think by sprinkling with oil and frying it. So good! They don't have a dedicated allergy fryer so the chef offered to heat up some oil on the stove to cook fries for the girls. They were both happy about that. DD12 was excited about the huge burger listed on the menu. It was so big that she couldn't get her mouth around it without squishing the bun. Sorry I forgot to take the picture before she ate half of it. DD15 was the one I was worried about for lunch. Knowing she can't eat the breads, I was wondering if there would be much she could have since it was mostly sandwiches. If I recall they had a steak on the menu so I thought she might like that. She didn't. I saw the seared tuna and pointed that out to her figuring she usually likes that. She was nervous that it would be overcooked like at the Derby so we discussed it with the chef. He said he'd make sure it was really likely seared so it would have that really rare texture. So, she ordered that with rice and fries. Boy does she like her rice and fries. When it was brought out, it was on a bun. She can't eat the buns. I hadn't realized that it was a sandwich or I would have said something. The server brought it back and the chef prepared her a new one. The tuna was good but it wasn't as good as what she likes to get at Japanese restaurants. Plain which rice and fries were the big hit. She later ordered another order of french fries. Thank goodness the chef hadn't dumped the oil yet so it didn't take nearly as long as the oil was already pretty warm when he started heating it. When looking at the menu, I saw the salmon with the artichoke tapenade. I love tapenade and I love artichokes so I asked if it would be safe for me. It was. YAY! I couldn't eat whatever starch normally came with it so the chef offered white rice. That was fine by me. He actually asked how like the sauces served and I just said to serve it however it's normally served as long as it's safe. I hadn't realized that it also comes with a roasted red pepper sauce. It was all delicious. It was cooked perfectly. Even the broccoli was perfectly cooked al-dente. I was very happy with my meal. Sorry again about partially eaten meal pictures. Looking at the picture, the tapenade looks kind of gross but in person it looked really good and tasted even better. After our entrees, the chef came out to discuss dessert options. There were 2 sorbets. It seems no mention of the conversation I had with that chef by phone happened. The kids weren't really in the mood for sorbets so that's when they ordered the extra bread and the extra fries. While talking, the chef said he would go check with the pastry chef about what they might be able to come up with. Here's what he brought out: chocolate mouse. It was REALLY yummy. So light and airy and chocolaty! DD12 couldn't finish hers because she was so stuffed but I enjoyed polishing it off. He made it using cocoa powder and rice based whipped cream. He had me review the label on the whipped cream before making it and it was safe. I hadn't realized it until heading to the bathroom, but they have this pizza station where kids can stretch their own dough. I'm glad DD12 didn't see it. She would have been disappointed by not getting to do it. Ignorance is bliss. Overall, it was a really good experience. I wouldn't hesitate to eat lunch here again.
