When The Edison celebrated the New Year in 2018 by opening its doors in Disney Springs, it became a hotspot for those looking for good food and a good time. Since then, families have been enjoying the Gatsby-era venue by day while the 21-and-up crowd settles in after 10 p.m. to kick back in multiple themed areas that have an industrial gothic look.
Memorable Menu Items
The Edison’s menu features craft cocktails and contemporary American cuisine, including a selection of satisfying entrees, burgers and more. The DB “Clothesline Candied Bacon” is a guest favorite. Crisp strips of maple and black peppered bacon are playfully presented hanging above a fruit mostarda and sweet and spicy pickles. It’s an appetizer that shouldn’t be missed.
The menu also seems to carry a bacon theme. The Old-fashioned Meatloaf and Gravy is prepared with applewood-smoked bacon and a spicy ketchup glaze, and the Oh Bacon baked macaroni and cheese dish combines maple-black pepper bacon, cavatappi pasta and melted fontina, muenster, cheddar and Alpine Swiss cheeses. It’s also included as a burger topping and could be an add-on to consider for the famous Organic Tomato Soup and Gooey Grilled Cheese.
A selection of new house-made desserts have been added to The Edison’s sweets menu. Treat yourself to the Cherry Cheesecake Trifle, which includes layers of cheesecake filling, vanilla pound cake, Amarena cherries and whipped cream, or the Triple Chocolate Voltage Cake, a dessert filled with chocolate mousse and raspberry sauce then topped with whipped cream. There’s also an Old Fashioned Shake in vanilla, chocolate or strawberry flavors. All shakes are topped with whipped cream, chocolate chips and a cherry.
Then, from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday, The Edison serves bottomless sangria and mimosas for $25 per person. Selections include a classic mimosa prepared with Opera Prima Brut and a splash of orange juice as well as red or white sangria made with Beso Del Sol, Peach Schnapps, Lazzaroni Amaretto, Lejay Cassis, orange juice and apple juice.
Indulge in these buzz-worthy beverages before or after Sunday brunch at Maria & Enzo’s, one of The Edison’s sister restaurants. From 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Maria & Enzo’s A La Carte Sunday Brunch delights diners with authentic Italian cuisine. Expect items such as Spaghetti Alla Carbonara, thick-cut spaghetti with a parmesan cream sauce, prosciutto and a soft-poached hen egg, as well as Braised Beef Short Rib Ragu with smoked pancetta, roasted tomato, spicy Italian sausage ragu and a soft-poached hen egg. Other brunch items include Nutella Stuffed French Toast and Frittata Rustica (an Italian-style omelet) that pair perfectly with the restaurant’s Garden to Glass cocktail list.
Live entertainment at The Edison starts after 10 p.m. daily. Guests who visit in the evening hours are asked to abide by a dress code that includes no ball caps, sleeveless shirts or flip-flops.
