After so many trips to Disneyland, I have gotten in a bit of a rut. I thought Blue Bayou was the bomb until I ate at Club 33 and DisneyWorld. Now I know better. My second fav place was Thunder Mountain BBQ but I found out Saturday that it was closed. At least here you could get fresh cooked food, lots of it and at a reasonable price compared to the frozen stuff at Blue Bayou. So with the Thunder option out of the way and Avalon Cove at DCA (the best place I had found) closed, we headed to Downtown Disney for lunch and picked Catal. For lunch I had the calamari to start. The breading was delicate and not greasy at all. It had a picate chilli dipping sauce that was nice but at times a tad too spicy. For lunch I had the Ceaser Salad with grilled shrimp added. It has very good. The shrimp were on a skewer and there were four of them. I cut them up so I could mix them with my salad a bit. Our server was pleasent and the dining area had a California fusion flavor with a mediteranian slant to the food. We returned for drinks and nibbles later and sat in their outdoor wine/cocktail bar. This time I had Green Apple Martini's (the fest round was great, even if I did have to hurl the cherry into the bushes! The grenadine spoils the taste of the drink). However the second round was not so good. We figured they were running low on Sour Apple pucker and adding too much sweet/sour mixer to compensate. We sent one back and the one we got back was the same, too sweet, like a sweetart. The nibbles I had were the escargot. They were a bit pedestrian. The burgandy mushroom sauce was too heavy and overpowering for the snails and the garlic was not roasted enough. There were large pieces and they were still hard. My friend had the yogurt, cucumber dip with pita which she said was OK. We thought the dinner menu looked a bit better. My friend said that House of Blues had better food. We did stop by Napa Rose and were disapointed that they were not open for lunch. I hear that their dinners are very good. Maybe next time.
