Eet by Maneet Chauhan now open at Disney Springs

Acclaimed James Beard Award-winning chef, Food Network star, restaurateur and author Maneet Chauhan and international hospitality entrepreneur Vivek Deora bring their famed Indian cuisine to Disney Springs with their newest concept Eet by Maneet Chauhan. The hospitality power couple brings not only a creative food menu, drink list, and vibrant interiors but also a colorful, exciting ambiance to the family-friendly Orlando destination.

“We are so excited to open the doors at eet and begin sharing our favorite food with guests,” says Chauhan. “Being one of our family’s favorite vacation spots, Walt Disney World has always held a special place in our hearts. Not to mention, our son, Karma, also shares his birthday with Mickey Mouse! Having the opportunity to open a restaurant at Disney Springs® Marketplace is absolutely humbling and exciting, and we are so thrilled to continue to make more memories at the Most Magical Place On Earth.”

A “modern, fun Indian-focused” concept, the restaurant offers an approachable take on the cuisine with traditional flavor and contemporary techniques. Chauhan’s flair is throughout the menu. Shareables include eet Bread Service with Pimento Whipped Paneer with warm naan, pimento whipped paneer cheese, masala vegetable sticks, Indian pickles, coriander honey and a variety of chutneys; and Tandoori Chicken Poutine, a cheesy, spice-filled dish made with chaat masala fries topped with tandoori chicken in a rich tomato butter sauce and melted white cheddar curds. A variety of naan include Saag Paneer Naan Pizza and the Chicken Tikka Pizza while vegan and vegetarian options include the Street Style Puffed Rice Salad, a chaat-style dish replicates Indian street food and offers crispy puffed rice paired with mango, strawberry, potato and cilantro along with tamarind & mint chutneys; and the Samosa Chopped Salad, an imaginative take with greens, vegetables and mini samosa croutons.

The Build Your Own Bowl section of the menu is where guests can get super creative with a variety of bases like cumin rice or turmeric cauliflower, topped with traditional, vegan or vegetarian kebabs and a selection of rich sauces. Served with pickled red cabbage, Indian Pico di Gallo and masala chickpea pearls, each bowl helps guests open their eyes to new flavors.

End the meal with something sweet like the Gulab Jamun Cheesecake. A longstanding dish at her flagship restaurant in Nashville, Maneet’s New York-style cheesecake is complemented with gulab jamun, known as an aromatic, sugary Indian donut, and topped with strawberries, saffron and cardamon.

Eet by Maneet Chauhan sits at 1780 E Buena Vista Drive #B at Disney Springs. Their days/hours are daily 11 a.m.-11 p.m.
