WDW Dining Review: The Edison (Disney Springs)
Last month, I took a quick trip down to Walt Disney World with my brother Stephen, who hasn’t been there in over seven years. While there, we had the chance to dine at a couple if sit-down restaurants that I personally have not experienced before. One of these places was The Edison, one of the newer eateries in The Landing section of Disney Springs. The restaurant is part of the Patina Restaurant Group, who also runs Morimoto Asia, Enzo’s Hideaway, Pizza Ponte and Maria & Enzo’s at Disney Springs, and both restaurants at the Italy Pavilion in Epcot. Themed as “Industrial Gothic”, it reminds me of a place Thomas Edison would have created once he developed electricity. I guess that’s partially why it’s called The Edison.
We arrived in mid-afternoon, just in time for lunch, but when we were leaving they were already switched over to dinner. I probably would not recommend going during this time, because it felt like the service staff was in total transition, so towards the middle of our meal, at least our table and a couple of others seemed to be overlooked. It took us a good while to get ketchup for our meals after they arrived and we flagged down someone to ask. I am not a restaurant manager, but I would think that a place famous for their burgers would have ketchup either at the table when the food arrives… or actually coming on the plates in little cups.
For appetizers, my brother had the Deviled Eggs and I had the “Clothesline Candied Bacon”. The eggs were tasty, but definitely had a kick to them, probably due to the mustard they used. The bacon was so delicious,and something I would order again if I dine here again. A little expensive for four slices of bacon, but worth it.
For our main dishes, my brother enjoyed the beer battered Fish & Chips, while I tried The Edison‘s Burger of the Month… January’s being the Double Stack Deli Burger, basically their famous Edison Burger topped with pastrami, corn chips, spicy mustard, and pickles. Although I overlooked the part about the mustard being spicy, the burger was very good. I ended up bringing half of my meal back to our resort room to enjoy later, it was pretty big. My brother also enjoyed his main dish. I got to try the fish, and it was well fried and very flaky.
While there was no entertainment going on during our dining time, I have heard really great things about the interactive entertainment that happens there nightly. Between enjoying that and the bacon, I just might be back.
Overall, while the service could have been better, this was a delicious first visit to The Edison, and I have a feeling it will not be my last.
