The Southern California Restaurant Writers Inc., a group has awarded eight Disneyland Resort restaurants with awards this year. Two in Disneyland, two in Disney California Adventure and three in the hotels were chosen in four different categories.

I'm so excited about the announcement of Manager of the Year, Jose Barragan. He has been with Disney for 17 years, and currently manages my favorite restaurant, Carthay Circle Restaurant and Lounge at Disney California Adventure park. Congratulations to Mr. Barragan and the entire staff of Carthay Circle! Well deserved indeed! Cheers!

 Carthay Circle the 1st week it opened. A family favorite since.
