Congrats to Napa Rose for winning the OC Icon award from food crtic Brad Johnson of the Oc Register
The O.C. Icon Award honors an institution open for 10 years or more that continues to set the standards and raise the bar for the entire restaurant community. No restaurant fits that description better than Napa Rose.
With chef Andrew Sutton at the helm from the beginning, the kitchen at Disney's premier dining room continues to set itself apart from the crowd with innovative dishes like a buffalo carpaccio that's topped with toasted birdseed or a fricassee of rabbit with caramelized chanterelle mushrooms and pillowy chive dumplings or a strikingly beautiful filet of Pacific ono paired with grilled octopus.
Hanging on the back trophy wall of Napa Rose, there's a picture of a magazine article from 2002 showing pan-roasted sea scallops in a colorful ink-splat nage of citrus and vanilla. That very dish still graces the menu today, and it feels as fresh and modern and as intriguing as ever.
Being in the heart of Disney, it will always be hard to achieve the perfect state of grace for which most restaurants of this caliber strive, but even at the height of the holiday rush, when everyone wants to dine here with their kids if for no other reason than to partake in the restaurant's famous hot chocolate, the dining room somehow remains an oasis of adult charm in the midst of so much childlike glee.
