DISNEY SPRINGS — D-LUXE BURGER FOR GOURMET FOODIES
This one-of-a-kind restaurant, now open in the Town Center neighborhood of Disney Springs, is the destination for gourmet burgers. These are not just any burgers! “You may think, “What can we possibly do that’s new with a burger? Everyone has done everything!'”… shared Disney’s executive chef De George of Culinary Concept Development… “Yet we studied burgers and French fries, like we knew nothing, for two years.” That time spent in research and development at Disney’s Flavor Lab has resulted in the unique menu offered at D-Luxe Burger… what De George is confident will be a winner.
Pared down to just four burgers on the menu, these burgers feature a signature blend of Angus chuck, short rib and brisket… plus special combinations of toppings… all in fresh baked buns.
- Classic Cheeseburger with Cheddar, lettuce, tomato & pickle
- BBQ Classic Burger with smoked Gouda, fried onion ring, bacon, BBQ sauce & lettuce
- Southern Classic Burger with pimiento cheese, fried green tomato, bacon & lettuce
- El Diablo Burger — chorizo + signature blend patty with pepper-jack cheese, fried banana peppers, lettuce, tomato & chipotle mayonnaise
French fries here are thrice cooked, steamed once and fried twice, with exceptional dipping sauces. De George shared… “We did a lot of testing for the dipping sauces and kept an eye on industry trends. I don’t think five years ago you’d have seen so many spicy sauces, but the palate is shifting.” Among the six dipping sauces are Buffalo Blue Cheese, Chipotle and Horseradish.
Not to be outdone by the burgers are the creamy gelato shakes… in classic flavors plus Raspberry, Salted Caramel and S’mores. For a twist, try their spirited shakes with Smoked Bourbon or Godiva Raspberry Liqueur.
Perhaps the most novel treat offered here is the Red Velvet Burger Macaron… created to look just like a burger. This dessert is all sweet… including the raspberry “ketchup”.
