This has got my mouth watering. I LOVE Greek food. I got a taste for it when I was posted to Cyprus for 6 months, and then when DW and me moved to Germany for 4 years we were surrounded by Greek restaurants :thumbsup2
I will be trying to fit this in on our next trip.
I wonder if they will do a Meze :goodvibes


Chef Cat Cora and Disney today celebrated the grand opening of Kouzzina by Cat Cora, an exciting new family dining restaurant at Disney’s BoardWalk at Walt Disney World Resort.This is the first table-service restaurant for the celebrity chef, featuring a menu of Mediterranean-style cuisine that pays tribute to the Cora family’s Greek roots.

Owned and operated by Disney and open daily for breakfast and dinner with seating for about 200 guests, the new restaurant features “time-honored recipes passed down from my ancestors, as well as my favorite Greek and Mediterranean dishes that my family loves,” Cora says.

The cuisine at Kouzzina (Greek for “kitchen” and pronounced “koo-zee-nah”) showcases Mediterranean cuisine and Chef Cora’s philosophy to create simple yet sensational meals.

The restaurant’s spacious interior features an open kitchen, wooden tables and chairs and a walk-up pizza window for casual dining at outdoor tables on the boardwalk. Breakfast specialties include Kouzzina’s signature blend of press-pot coffee and an icy Greek frappé with coffee, milk and natural sugar. Sweet choices include steel-cut cinnamon oatmeal, blueberry orange granola pancakes and Greek-style yogurt with fresh fruit and house-made granola. Savory breakfast creations include turkey-sweet potato hash with two eggs and arugula salad; the stacked Kouzzina breakfast with two poached eggs, kalamata olive toast, artichoke spread, sweet potato hash and bacon or chicken sausage; and spinach-tomato-feta scrambled eggs.

For dinner, Cora’s hand-selected beverage menu includes “Cat’s Ouzo-tini,” Mediterranean sangria and her own wine label, Coranation, featuring California wines. Starters include crisp calamari, goat cheese-stuffed grape leaves, spinach pie and Spiro’s Greek Salad. Entrées range from cinnamon stewed chicken to traditional whole fish and a char-grilled lamb burger, with sides such as chilled salt-roasted beets, smashed garlic-fried potatoes, sautéed brussel sprouts and herbed orzo with Greek olive oil and Kasseri cheese. A traditional baklava and dense, rich, chocolate budino are dessert favorites.

Menu here, was hoping for Beef Stifado but not there.
Had a last minute holiday in Corfu about 20 years ago, £99 each, hotel was a dump but the little restaurant next door was one of the best place I have ever eaten, a man and wife, they opened from 7am thru til the last person leaving early hours. I had Stifado every night it was delicious, never had it since.
Maybe its a good thing its not there, I doubt it would be anything like Corfu all them years ago,

This is definitely on my ADR list. Looks lovely! I had a Greek housemate when I was at Uni and loved it when she cooked. Living in Cornwall Greek restaurants are decidedly thin on the ground!

We used to have Stifado in Germany. We also used to like Mana's in York. Went in for a meal every time we visited but was gutted to see it had shut down last time we were there :sad2:

Just looked at the menu and it looks good to me. I lurve Haloumi - especially when it's served on bacon. It will be interesting to see how the lamb sells as I know from talking to the americans I work with that they are not big lamb eaters over there.

I booked an ADR here a couple of months ago for my visit in October. I love Greek food and am really looking forward to eating there.

We'll be trying this next week. As long as the food is as tasty as Spoodles I will be happy. Hopefully they won't simplify the menu for less adventerous palates!

Those pics look good popcorn::
