      Kouzzina closing

      Just found out that Cat Cora's restaurant will be closing on Sept. 30th this year. We ate there last time and loved it. There will be a new restaurant but no name was given.

      We all really liked breakfast there but I didn't rate dinner much. I think DH liked it though. Hope they put something decent there.

      I hope you are correct. My wife loved the Blackberry Sangria and we both loved the short ribs. I can't recall off the top of my head what I ate for dinner but it was delicious. Have to look back at my TR. We never ate breakfast there but our friends do and that is on their list every year or was.

      My only disappointment was on my first visit. I ordered a Metaxa after dinner. The only Metaxa I was familiar with wad Greek Brandy. This one was ouzo.

      We've only eaten breakfast at the 'meet' which was excellent. Fingers crossed for a good replacement

      What a shame - we never got around to trying this one! I hope a good replacement comes along :)

      Wonder what prompted this decision? I'm very surprised It only changed from Spoodles a few years ago! O.K. breakfast is not very busy, but dinner is always very busy when we are around!Please not another "quick poor food" place! We love breakfast here,sitting outside is so nice.My DH also loves to order the Fishermans Stew EVERY time he's in there! As the Flying Fish is next door I can't see it being in a similar vein! Oh well, fingers crossed. Linda

      I’m surprised its changing so soon after its last transition. Like others our only experience was breakfast, which was fine enough. It’s never really been on our radar otherwise though. Maybe it just hasn’t captured peoples interest as much as some of its neighbours.

      It'll be 5 years old just before it closes which surprised me! I guess the lease was up and it's not making enough. I hope it'll be something good and not another buffet!

      From The Orlando Sentinel;

      Kouzzina by Cat Cora, a Mediterranean-style restaurant at Disney World, is closing. Its final day will be Sept. 30. Reservations will be taken for meals through that date.

      A "new concept" -- but unidentified -- restaurant, will take its place later this fall, a Disney World internal memo said.

      "Walt Disney World regularly reviews and updates the portfolio of food and beverage offerings here," the memo said.

      Cora and Walt Disney World released a joint statement on Monday.

      "After five successful years operating Kouzzina by Cat Cora, we have decided to move on to new opportunities," it said. "We are very appreciative of the amazing Cast Members who made Kouzzina by Cat Cora such a popular destination. Our collaboration has been an incredible adventure and we are very proud of the restaurant we created and the experiences we provided to countless families who enjoyed everything Walt Disney World Resort has to offer. It is our hope to work together again in the future.”

      The restaurant, owned and operated by Disney, opened at Disney's BoardWalk in 2009. A restaurant called Spoodles was previously in that BoardWalk location.
