Anyone been to Todd English's bluezoo? I confess that Disney restaurants give me the willies, but perhaps I'm being unfairly judgmental.

We ate at bluezoo last year and we're going back again in a few months. It's definitely not a Disney-fied restaurant. The Swan and Dolphin seem to cater to the convention crowd, and not families on vacation. The restaurant has a modern, hip vibe. Cocktail waitresses in very short skirts. I remember the food, too. :biggrin: We did a 5-6 course tasting menu. I have the tasting menu around here somewhere, I'll post a few of the courses if I can find it.

Here's the menu, in case you haven't seen it:

there is the current menu... I recently quit working there because I was offered a job at Victoria and Alberts at the Grand Floridian as well as other issues. But Chef Windus is a great guy, and is very knowlegable in the kitchen realm. I learned a lot from him during my two years there. However If I were to recommend anything from there it would have to be the swordfish, or the chefs tasting menu, which litterally changes daily. Read his blog for more info about the place and what he likes to do.

We did the tasting menu at Bluezoo again last week. The standout course was bacon and eggs--poached duck egg over cheese grits, with house smoked heritage pork bacon and bacon jus.

Any updates? I have reservations at Ravenous Pig so far, and am very interested in Sushi Pop, but the added miles are a drag for those without cars.

What's the skinny on eating in the immediate convention center area? I know that they're all likely to be chains, but what chains are there? Any southern restaurants you can't find in the northeast?
