Back in late August, Disney announced that a big dining change was coming to dining at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. The Wave would be closing permanently and taking its place would be a new steakhouse, Steakhouse 71. The Wave served a number of American dishes, but also a number of dishes with international twists. However, Steakhouse 71 will feature a more contemporary steakhouse menu.
While not a ton of details were available on Steakhouse 71, Disney Parks Blog has now shared a first look at the menus for the new Contemporary Resort steakhouse. Steakhouse 71 will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and has delicious menus for all three.
Per Disney Parks Blog:
Steakhouse 71, which gets its name from the year the resort opened, has a sleek yet comfortable décor with fun design elements from the ‘70s and hints of our Florida heritage with subtle sightings of the beloved Orange Bird and citrus groves.
Start your Disney day with a delicious breakfast at Steakhouse 71. The breakfast menu offers everything from Fresh-baked Pastries and Avocado Toast to Walt’s Prime Rib Hash and Eggs Benedict! Enjoy a variety of wake-up sips like the Steakhouse Bloody Mary and the Bourbon Cold Brew (Joffrey’s Coffee Cold Brew, bourbon, maple, vanilla bean cream), as well as espresso, cappuccino, latte, freshly brewed coffee, assorted teas, and juices.
While many restaurants may have similar, or sometimes the same, menus for lunch and dinner, Steakhouse 71 has very different menus for both. The appetizers for lunch and dinner are the same, but lunch has set entrées and dinner allows Guests to pick their preferred cut of steak and then one side and one sauce. There are also chicken, fish, and vegetable dishes available for Guests who do not want steak.
Check out the lunch and dinner menus below.
As if the lunch and dinner menus are not delectable enough, Steakhouse 71 will also have a dessert menu featuring a number of delicious treats, from chocolate cake to apple tart tatin. There are also specialty cocktails and hot beverages.
Another great aspect about Steakhouse 71 is that it will not only be open to Guests with reservations. Steakhouse 71 will also have a lounge where Guests can come on a first-come-first-serve basis and snack on a number of yummy bites like loaded mac and cheese and PB & J chicken wings.
The opening of Steakhouse 71 comes on the heels of the closing of Steakhouse 55 at Disneyland Resort. Both steakhouse names are to honor the years the theme parks first opened.
Steakhouse 71 will officially open on October 1 — the day Disney World begins its massive 50th Anniversary celebration — and will begin taking reservations on September 16.
