November 8, 1997 – Citricos Restaurant Opens in Walt Disney World’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
“Enjoy American cuisine infused with Mediterranean flavors, plus an award-winning, international wine list.”
On November 8, 1997, the Citricos restaurant opened in Walt Disney World’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. It replaced the restaurant Flagler’s, which had been in the resort since 1988. Citricos’s featured cuisine is somewhat similar to its predecessor, featuring a blend of Florida and Mediterranean cooking, including a charcuterie plate, oak-grilled filet of beef, and a tropical fruit crème brûlée. The restaurant also features an award-winning wine list, and an exclusive Chef’s Domain area where guests are treated to a special multi-course dinner while talking with the chef and the sommeliers. A dress code is required when dining at Citricos.
