If you haven’t had the pleasure to sample the new world cuisine of Paddlefish in Disney Springs, an upcoming wine dinner promises a luxurious opportunity to sample it’s offerings. Guests at the dinner, held on the steamboat themed restaurant’s rooftop deck, will enjoy a four-course wine dinner featuring old world wines paired with new world cuisine all while allowing guests an unprecedented view of Lake Buena Vista and Disney Springs.
The evening will begin with an outdoor reception featuring passed skewers with grilled shrimp and lemongrass and Thai-glazed Louisiana broiler claws. Guests will then be moved inside for the four-course feast which will feature dishes such as Yellow-fin Tuna Cruda with an avocado mousse and sriracha emulsion as well as a Surf & Turf pairing of lamb loin with chargrilled octopus and bacon marmalade.
Wine pairings will highlight selections from some of Italy and Spain’s most-respected wineries including Contratto Extra Brut, Gramona Gessami Blanco, Monte Carbonare Soave and Mocali Brunello di Montalcino. To close out the night, guests will be served a glass of Poire Prisonniere, an award-winning pear-infused brandy, alongside a white chocolate and passionfruit mousse and a Ginger Florentine Cookie.
The dinner will feature the talents of the restaurant’s new executive chef, Chef Steven Richard, who moved over to Paddlefish from Portobello Country Italian Trattoria, which is currently undergoing a transformation of its own. Richard is a Massachusetts native, and brings his unique New England connection to Paddlesfish’s seafood focus.
