Carthay Circle Restaurant and bar doesn't really count as a speakeasy, because it's in Disney's California Adventure and the time period is a little late, but since the Mystery Playground team recently went and loved it, we'll still review it.
The restaurant is modeled after the Carthay Circle Theater in Los Angeles, where there original Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs made it's debut on December 21, 1937. The restaurant has a wonderful old Hollywood vibe and if you look closely at the wall art on the first floor, you may be able to find memorabilia from the premiere of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
When you go, don't miss the Signature Fried Biscuits stuffed with White Cheddar, Bacon and Jalapeño with Apricot Honey Butter. They are fabulous and the taste of the jalapeño is ever so feint.
Another thing not to miss is the Carthay Theater Popcorn Ice Cream. The ice cream usually accompanies the Valrhona Caramel Chocolate Turnover with House Made Marshmallow, but since we were so full they just brought us the popcorn ice cream. It was delicious and it really did taste like fresh, old fashioned buttered pop corn.
They do have wonderful hand crafted cocktails. After a day in the parks, we just focused on the food.
To get in, you need to pay admission into Disney's California Adventure in Anaheim, CA, and you might also need a reservation during busy park times. You can reserve a table by calling Disney Dining at (714)781-DINE. They take reservations up to 60 days in advance.
