Kouzzina Changes

As noted in my trip report from a few weekends ago, we were surprised to see Kouzzina closed for refurbishment, after only being open a year or so. I found this over on allears.net on the "refresh", which explains what's going on:

* Kouzzina by Cat Cora at Disney's BoardWalk gets a facelift and new offerings. There's new exterior signage and a new Cat Cora presence in the lobby with three video monitors with images and text that flow from one to the next, showcasing the celebrity chef's views on food, family and her culinary journey. Chef Cat's branded product line also is for sale in the lobby, including Greek olive oil, olives, tapenades and spreads.

In the main dining room, a new iconic olive oil display sets the stage for a new "olive oil tasting experience" for all diners " with the bread, servers will offer two varieties of Greek olive oils to taste and compare, as well as kalamata olives.

New artwork, marble finishes and soft drapes warm up the room, with a new "Coranation Room" at the back of the restaurant. The room has a more upscale decor and will offer a Chef's Table prix fixe dining experience on weekends (still under development).

Interesting very interesting. Obviously something was not working and I personally doubt that those changes will make it work any better. Just my own opinion mind you.

Yeah that seems a little quick to be closing down. And what they're describing doesn't seem substantial enough to make any difference if something was worth closing down for. Maybe there's more to the story.
