    Cool Local Critic Reviews Carthay Circle

    This review appeared in the Sunday edition of the Torrance Daily Breeze. It was written by Linda Fields Gold. [email protected] @sgvnfeatures1 on Twitter She desribes the restaurant as being in the Mission Revival Style and that it is a scaled-down replica of the movie theater where Snow White premiered. She reviewed the bar on the first floor and pronounced it "incredible." She ate the Lobster Pad Thai Imperial Roll and sampled the Crispy Gordita and the Pacific Ono Ceviche and the Fire Cracker Duck Wings. For the main dish, she had the Short Rib Raviolis. A colleague had the Twice Cooked Beef Taco and the Sauteed Salmon with Saffron Couscous and a neighbor had the Petit Beef Filet Mignon Braised with Kobe Beef Cheeks, Fingerling Potatoes, Watercress and Zinfandell Essence. For dessert, there was Rocky Road Brownie with marshmallow ice cream, drizzled with caramel sauce; toasted lemon pound cake; and a pear tart. She had wine with each course and said they were excellent. She even reviewed the 9-and-under menu and said two boys she knew both cleaned their plates.

    Ms. Gold gave the restaurant her highest grade, four stars and said she'd be back for the items she missed this time around.

    This is quite a coup for Disney, showing people there's more to theme park food than hamburgers, hot dogs and pizza (not that there's anything wrong with that).

    There should be a sticky thread called "This Day in Disney History." The company has a long history and this would be a good way to acknowledge it. Walt was born 112 years ago; that's quite a chunk of American history and culture.

    High marks for a Disney restaurant. Is there a link to the actual write up?

My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."

    Or while eating for that matter. It made the awesome burrito from Chipotle that I am eating suddenly seem bland and tasteless.

    Let the delivery radius go a little further west to Woodland Hills and I'm sold.

    The amount of time it takes them to deliver your food to your table they might as well deliver it to Burbank or Woodland Hills...

    Sounds great. The only thing stopping me are the prices at the moment.

    Carthay Circle is good, don't get me wrong. But it was a reporter from the Daily Breeze, not the NY Times....

Do you happen to know how to fly this thing?”

    Or even the L. A. Times. Still, it makes the restaurant seem top-notch. I just wish I could afford to go!

    Glad the critic enjoyed her dinner. I found the Carthay a bit fussy for my taste, but I'm also decidedly unsophisticated in my taste, so take that as you will.
    I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.
