More than a dozen new dishes have debuted at French Market Restaurant in New Orleans Square at Disneyland park, redefining fast-casual dining at the classic Cajun-Creole restaurant that’s open for lunch and dinner. Now, instead of an all-day menu, they’ve added a few more dishes for dinner.
The weather is perfect for sitting on the outdoor patio and listening to Dixieland jazz with the Royal Street Bachelors band. New favorites have an authentic Louisiana flair, such as the N’awlin’s Salad with lettuce, julienned yams, Granny Smith apples, caramelized pecans, lentils, and tart cherries with a sweet citrus vinaigrette. Or the red beans and rice with Andouille sausage, Cajun meatloaf made with beef, pork, turkey and Andouille sausage with veggies, smashed potatoes and a Worcestershire cream sauce. The jambalaya is back, and the citrusy grilled chicken is too (though the name has changed from Plantation Citrus Chicken to French Quarter Chicken).
We love the po’boy sandwiches (lunch only) with marinated shrimp in Creole mustard sauce or thinly sliced roast beef with crispy onion straws. And when the weather turns chilly, there’s chowder (corn, not clam) or slow-roasted Louisiana beef stew, both served in a sourdough boule.
Dinner adds panko-crusted red snapper with veggies, Red Bliss potato wedges and a sweet pepper sauce; and Creole shrimp pasta tossed in a smoked Gouda Creole mustard sauce.
Let the good times roll! And tell us your favorite new taste at French Market Restaurant in the comments.
