Disney Springs

•Wolfgang Puck will vacate his current location in the Westend. This will make room for Paleo. Closing date is August 1, 2017 and all employees have a job waiting for them in the Levy chain of restaurants.

As we wait for Edison and Wine Bar George we now have more to watch forward to in 2018. Portobello will become Tony Mantuano’s restaurant. Wolfgang Puck bar and grill as well as Jaleo by José Andés add to the list of new chef owned restaurants.

Notes

Can gourmet cotton become a new trend? Disneyland California Adventure has a dole whip flavored cotton candy. Always check menus and the news for changes. We are going into Summer so expect some menu changes. Disney cruise line changed menus the end of last year. Sometimes a restaurant will get an item on stock and add it to the menu for a while. Some menu sites are very outdated so look for discontinued restaurants and obvious errors.
