Biergarten Restaurant will see the addition of seasonal vegetables, fruits and soups to the buffet. These were added to lighten the fare and add some healthy dining options to the more hearty buffet lineup. At Biergarten, Chef Wade Camerer featured asparagus soup this summer. He told Pam Brandon of Disney Parks Blog that this fall it may be mushroom bisque. Vegetables will be carrots, parsnips and Swiss chard. There will also be an addition of a cheese course feature German cheeses (of course), pretzel bread croutons and smoked meats. For the kids, Chicken Fricassee – chicken, mushrooms and peas in a creamy sauce over rice, has been added to the menu. It’s German comfort food!
