The first Waldorf Astoria to be built outside of Manhattan also features a steakhouse called Bull & Bear, just like New York. Well, not exactly like New York. The decor here is less dark and clubby, it's actually quite an attractive room with windows overlooking the resort's pool area (and Disney fireworks in the distance). The menu features steak, of course, but also does some fine fish, including a lovely Dover sole filleted tableside. Also performed tableside is a traditional Caesar salad. Curiously, there is no Waldorf salad. And the veal Oscar (another invention of the New York hotel's) is a stylized version.
B&B had a rocky start. But now that it has found its stride, and readjusted service and quality to be more in line with what you'd expect from a Waldorf Astoria, Bull & Bear is ready to compete for a place on the top 10 list of best restaurants in Central Florida.
