Avalon Cove Bar - lunch - February 9, 2002

We've had lunch at the new character dining at Avalon Cove, and the bar used to be one of our favorite places to eat, but we hadn't been to the bar since the changes and wanted to try it out.  The food menu has much less than what used to be offered - there are only 5 appetizer items, but there are lots of alcoholic drinks being offered, so it's much more really just a bar now.  The five items offered are:  California roll sushi, loaf of onion rings, fried calamari with marinara sauce, chicken lettuce wraps, and lobster nachos.  My husband and I shared an order of the calamari and the nachos.  The calamari was very good, very fresh, and the marinara dipping sauce was very tasty.  The lobster nachos were really good.  The lobster itself was ok, but the rest of the dish was great.  It's a very big portion, serving more than one, with fresh-made chips (as we were leaving later, we saw the cook cutting stacks of round tortillas into chip shapes before presumably frying them), 2 kinds of cheese (though we would both have preferred if there was a bit more cheese), tomatoes and some black beans.  Both items were plenty for the two of us for lunch.

While I don't see us visiting the bar as often as we used to, I can see coming back periodically.  The only downside is that they don't offer an AP discount.  (When asked, our waitress said that the bar menu was basically finished, but that at the downstairs dining, they were working on coming up with a lunch menu that was different than the dinner menu.)

We originally started out sitting at the bar on the side closest to Treasures, but because it was a very windy day, we kept getting huge gusts of wind, one of which almost blew our silverware and napkins off the table, so while we were still waiting for our food, we moved to a table just about at the entrance to the bar.
