Chef’s Counters at Disney’s signature restaurants are in the theme of the Victoria and Albert’s Chefs Table, though not quite as elaborate. You book the special experience and have the opportunity for the Executive Chef to build a custom menu for that evening around your likes and dislikes. It’s an extraordinary chance to watch Disney chefs up close, and to (hopefully) get a few extra samples of the delicious food their preparing! Usually chef’s counters don’t cost more than a standard seating at the restaurant, but they still include special attention.
There’s no official word from Disney on this change, and it’s not reflected on their main Flying Fish web page, but SamLand’s experience is notable. stay tuned; I’ll keep updating with whatever info I get. 🙂
