When I first heard about the new Wine Bar George brunch, I knew I wanted to try and squeeze it in during a trip! Since it’s only on the weekends, we scheduled it for Saturday morning after the half marathon in January. We had a group of 5 of us going to try it out!
Wine Bar George is located in Disney Springs, and they have a huge collection of wines. If you’re into wine it seems like a great place to try different glasses, samples, etc.
I was with Jason and my friend Mercedes, and we met up with Jenn from Fairest Run of All and her friend. Jenn and I have been “blog buddies” for years now, but this was the first time we got to meet up in person! So it was great to finally interact IRL and chat throughout brunch.
If you’re heard about the Wine Bar George brunch, chances are you’ve heard about the Dole Whip mimosa. That’s what the majority of us ordered. It’s made with Dole Whip, prosecco, and moscato.
Note that there’s also a Dole Whip Froscato, which is Moscato, Vodka, Pineapple. The Dole Whip mimosa was delicious and basically exactly what you’d expect it to be. Sweet, pineappley (that’s a word, right?), and refreshing.
One member of our party also got the Friezling (riesling, vodka, and dole whip lime):
I’m not a huge fan of lime but I tried a sip and this was really good. It worked well with the Riesling and was something a little bit different – a good option for those who might not love pineapple as much.
Since I was running the marathon the next day of course I was going to take all the carbs I could get! And when I saw Crispy Mac and Cheese bites (tomato nage, pecorino) of course I couldn’t resist that:
These were delicious and everything you’d hope they’d be. Nice and crispy coating on the outside with cheesy macaroni on the inside. The tomato sauce with it was really nice – a good earthy natural tomato flavor. Even with a entree on the way I am very glad we ordered this!
For my main dish I got the Burrata (avocado, bacon, ciabatta):
This is basically a fancy avocado toast… and it was SO good. I wasn’t quite sure what it would be from the description, but obviously there’s a lot more to it than what they mentioned. The marinated tomatoes added a lot of great flavor. But the highlight was really the bacon and the bread. It was a nice ciabatta bread, but the bacon was heavenly. It was thick, seasoned, amazing bacon. Even after seeing the other dishes I am confident I got the best thing on the menu for me. Jenn also got this dish and she also seemed to really enjoy it!
Merecedes ordered the Eggs Benedict (house-made chicken sausage, hollandaise, crispy polenta cake):
I’m a huge eggs benedict fan so I was definitely tempted by this one – and after she described how delicious it was I would have been jealous if my food wasn’t so good! The highlight for her was that the base was a polenta cake, which was apparently amazing.
Jason had the Wine Country Omelet (artichoke, asparagus, olive-tomato medley, Havarti):
For some reason his entree was the last to arrive as it was a little delayed in the kitchen. But when it came it was delivered by George himself! This was a well cooked omelet with interesting ingredients. I could tell it was very strong with olives, which are not my favorite so I didn’t try it. Jason ate it up though!
Overall Wine Bar George was a big win for me! The brunch was really delicious. That avocado toast was one of the best brunch dishes I’ve had anywhere. I’d also really like to come back here to try some of the wines and meat/cheese boards that they offer. I know I’ll be back eventually!
