Hollywood Brown Derby, located in The Hollywood Studios theme
park, is based on the Original Brown Derby, in Hollywood.
dining outside or inside, you get the feel of what it was
like at the Original Brown Derby. I prefer inside dining myself
(you know, the air conditioning, etc.), where I can look around
at all the caricatures on the wall, the class and ambiance
of the 1920s and 30s, when the stars of that era frequented
and I first dined there in December of 2008. Being almost
two years ago, I can't remember what appetizers we had, or
what my entree was, but Cindy
is positive that she had the Spit-roasted Half Chicken.
I do remember that
I tried the Grapefruit Cake for dessert. It is a Brown Derby
Original, and although it was decent, I can say I was overwhelmed
with delight over it.
Overall, our experience
at The Hollywood Brown Derby restaurant was really nice. Cindy
gave it a 5-star rating, and I gave it a 4-star rating. We're
going again this July (2010), and I'll put an update of that
experience here then.
First off, I have
to change my rating after this visit, to a 5-star rating...
was AWESOME... Our group had a wonderful time, and our
server, Ti Ti (pronounced tee-tee) was great! She was
extremely professional in her duties, but oh, so very
socialable. There wasn't a dull moment around the table
when she was there, and she was a wealth of knowledge
on the history of The Brown Derby.
There were six
of us this time around, and all of us agreed that we had a
very nice experience, and this time around, I, for one, really
enjoyed my food.
Since I'm writing
this the night I had the food, I can remember what I had this
For the appetizer,
I had the Cremini Mushroom Chevre Tortelloni with Tomato-Fennel
Sauce and Shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano, and it was just
as Ti Ti described... Delicious!
I had their signature
Char-grilled Filet of Beef..., but this time I really
enjoyed it. I don't remember enjoying it that much in 2008,
which was the last time I went.
I didn't ask if
there was a new chef, so that may have been the reason, but
the food was definitely much better this time around.
My Dessert was
a very tasty Warm Seasonal Fruit Cobbler with Creme Fraiche
and Orange Blossom Honey.
Since the group
was all adults, I decided to treat us all to a Grand Marnier
Flight, and it was appreciated. I don't drink much at all,
and neither did anyone else, so this was truly a different
