My wife and I have eaten at the Hollywood Brown Derby at Disney’s Hollywood Studios several times through the years. It’s a bit expensive, indeed! However, it’s the only Signature Restaurant at the Studios and is 2 Table Service credits on the Disney Dining Plan. Regardless, we feel it is well worth the price!
Let’s head over and I’ll tell you why!
But enough of all that, what about the food?! (’cause you know that’s what I do best!)
Now, I could come up with a multitude of complimentary adjectives for each item I’m about to present, which were sampled by my wife and friends, but I’m going to just say right now, everything is delicious. I will, however, point out some highlights.
Lets start with the starters, also known as the appetizers.
First there is the Portsmouth Lobster Bisque, with Tarragon oil, and a Brentwood sweet corn-lobster relish for $10.
Our Famous Brown Derby Cobb Salad is made with finely chopped greens, turkey breast, egg, bacon, tomatoes, crumbled bleu cheese, avocado, chives and Cobb dressing $15.
Sterling Silver Pork-seared Tenderloin, with herb and four-cheese spaetzle with applewood smoked bacon, shallots, sweet peppers, braised red cabbage and an apple cider jus, $33.
Everyone agreed this was the best entree, Duck Two Ways, which is Crispy duck Magret and Duck confit, with apple-rosemary stuffing over a butternut squash, mascarpone anolini and maple brown butter $35.
For a special occasion while at the Studios, this is the place for you.
