The Edison - Disney Springs

In July, I had dinner at The Edison in Disney Springs with my friend Sarah from Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free at WDW.

The Edison, a table service restaurant featuring American cuisine, is themed to look like a 1920's electric company with a steampunk twist.

The Edison is not a Disney-owned and operated restaurant, so they do not have an allergy-friendly menu, but our server was knowledgeable about gluten free options.

I decided to try the Mistress, one of the Edison's signature cocktails. It contains vodka, grenadine, lemon juice, and sparkling wine. It was good, but I did not love it enough to order on future visits.

From the Shares & Nibbles menu, Sarah and I decided to share the DB clothesline candied bacon with maple, black pepper, fruit mustarda, and sweet and spicy pickle. The Edison does have a dedicated fryer, so the Electri-Fries and L. Burbank Hand Cut Fries are an option as well.

Sarah and I were really looking forward to the candied bacon, because we are both bacon-lovers. The presentation was impressive, but the bacon was not as crisp as I would have liked, and I wanted it to have more maple and black pepper. I did not try either of the accompaniments, because I am not a fan of mustard or pickles.

From the Patented Specialties menu, Sarah chose The Edison Burger, which you can read about here. Currently, The Edison does not have gluten free buns, but hopefully that will change in the future.

I ordered the Scottish Salmon with avocado salsa, heirloom tomatoes, avocado, and cilantro. My salmon tasted fresh and was perfectly cooked, and I enjoyed the accompaniments it was served with.

The Edison does have gluten free options for dessert, including their shakes. I was tempted to order the Great Big Rocky Road Shake, but the Sweets menu says it is for two people, and I had already eaten at Woody's Lunch Box and Mama Melrose's that day, so I decided to pass on dessert, which of course I now regret.

Overall, I enjoyed my meal at The Edison, but there are other restaurants at Disney Springs that I love or still need to try, so I am not sure if I will be bringing my family here on upcoming trips, unless we stop in for dessert.

You can read more about The Edison, view their menus, and make advance dining reservations on their website or on Disney's website.

What are your favorite gluten free options at The Edison?
