The ultimate, all-day Disney California Adventure feast

April 25, 2016, 5:24 PM · What's your favorite thing to eat at Disney California Adventure?

For my Orange County Register column this week, I listed my favorite restaurants at the park — for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a snack. And at for each location, I named the dish I'd choose from that restaurant. To accommodate different tastes and budgets, I offered my pick for quick service and table service meals at lunch and dinner and sweet and savory options for the snack. (I'm calling these my picks, but your reader ratings influences my decisions, too.)

You can see my picks in a slideshow on the Register website, if you missed the column in print on Sunday.

Unfortunately... I seem to have killed one of my selections. The Paradise Garden Grill (my choice for quick-service dinner) closed without notice today, though it's still listed on the Disneyland app. Here's hoping that closure is just temporary and that we haven't lost one of Theme Park Insider readers' favorite DCA restaurants.

Flo's Cafe would top the list for lunch or dinner if they had retained the original menu. The new menu is a huge disappointment.

Lobster Nachos is an excellent choice. I've been eating them since late-spring 2002 when Cove Bar reopened after the closure of the Wolf Gang Puck restaurant. This was a time when Cove Bar was a place known to only a few insiders and open only Friday to Sunday off-season. It was a true "locals only" establishment for years, but unfortunately is frequently too crowded to even consider anymore. I've had more comped drinks in that bar than any other bar I've ever frequented! One of my all-time best New Years Eve was spent in that bar as well.
