Food and Flight Wrap up and Reviews!
Hope you're all enjoying the 4th of July weekend so far! I just wanted to let everyone here on VF know that DisneyExaminer has posted their full wrap up and reviews on the new Paradise Pier eateries - Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta and Paradise Garden Grill, as well as our review on Goofy's Sky School and other things we saw during our visit Friday! We called it our Food and Flight event!
Here's an excerpt from our full article -
We decided to belly up and try 2 pastas and 2 pizzas (no salads, folks - lettuce it lettuce and not for us carnivores to review)!
Pictured above - Pasta tossed with chicken in a sun-dried tomato cream sauce. $10.
We also tried a five-cheese ravioli with basil pesto and toasted pine nuts. Also for $10.
Pictured above - Flatbread pizza topped with Portobello mushroom and spinach. $9.
We also tried the flatbread pizza topped with BBQ chicken (think California PIzza Kitchen BBQ chicken pizza). Also $9.
For dessert, we tried the only two desserts offered at this eatery - a lemoncello cheesecake and espresso-topped chocolate cake. Both are offered at $5 each.
It was really hard to decided what exactly would be the staple to BP&P. Pizza has been done before at the Resort and when you really look at it, we knew that there would be some problems when it came to flatbread pizzas. Flatbread pizzas are usually served as an appitizer at most restaurants and at that $9 price point, we found it difficult to be satisfied by it. Going back to what I said about picking and choosing pre-portioned entrees, we found that the chicken on our BBQ chicken pizza was too dry, by the mere fact that it was not picked by guests immediately after cooking and that it sat for longer than expected. Sadly, this left both pizzas we tasted with the same verdict of not-too-good.
