A Meal with a View at Celsius

It brings a smile to our faces and rumble to our stomachs when we see our favorite pop-up restaurant Celsius appear in the park. Located at the northeast corner of The Rink, Celsius offers great food with stunning view of Bank of America Winter Village.

The perfect place for a quick bite or a lengthy meal, Celsius has a variety of seating options. You can sit outside on the first floor under toasty warm heaters or inside at the bar. You can also head upstairs to the second floor dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows and great views of skaters on The Rink below.

Celsius's large menu includes small plates, salads, sandwiches, entrees, sides, desserts, cocktails, non-alcoholic hot beverages, beer, and wine. Take a look below at some selections from their menu.

Spiced Hot Cider
A great way to warm up after some skating on The Rink. Wrap your hands around this mug and enjoy cider served with a cinnamon stick and clove.
Mediterranean Plate
A perfect starter to share with friends. Comes with hummus, babaganoush, feta, roasted beet, olives, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and toasty warm pita bread. 
Falafel Sliders
The order comes with three sliders total, along with cucumber, plum tomatoes, and hummus spread on brioche buns with a side of fries and harissa (vegetarian). The fries were so good that we ordered an extra side of fries after tasting them!
Bryant's Mac & Cheese
Served in a sizzly cast-iron pan, the mac & cheese has a creamy blend of cheddar, jack, and gruyere and is topped with breadcrumbs (we recommend adding smoked bacon as well). 
Winter Vegetable Orecchiette
With vegetable ratatouille and fresh herbs, garlic, and shaved Parmesan (vegetarian).
Roasted Kale and Quinoa Salad
The salad features all the protein and vegetables you could wish for: roasted kale, quinoa, chickpeas, carrots, dates, jicama, sprouts, cherry tomatoes, and a green goddess dressing. This is one satisfying salad. 

Short Rib Pot Roast
With potatoes, carrot, celery, and onion, slow cooked in a rich re wine infused demi glace, finished with a warm cheddar biscuit. The pot roast was rich and the cheddar biscuit was the best we've had in quite some time.
Pan Roasted Salmon
With roasted butternut squash, quinoa salad, and herb jus, this filet is the perfect meal for the beginning of winter. 
Blue Velvet Cake
A fun spin on the tradition red velvet cake, this delicious blue slice with vanilla crema is a delicious way to end a meal at Celsius.

Celsius occasionally closes for private events and tables there become a hot commodity when Winter Village is busiest on holidays and weekends. Although Celsius does not take advance reservations, the restaurant is quite large and can typically seat people without a wait during the daytime.
