With a celebratory shot of ouzo and surrounded by family, friends Disney executives and invited media, Kouzzina by Cat Cora opened officially at Disney’s Boardwalk in Lake Buena Vista. Call it my Big Fat Greek Restaurant opening. The event had all the elements: Cheers, toasts, traditional food, dancing and lively music.
Family was key to the development of Kouzzina, says Cora. And she wanted the restaurant to celebrate her Greek roots from the decor to the menu.
When guests enter Kouzzina, which is in the space formerly occupied by Spoodles, they will notice the walls lined with Cora’s family photographs. Dark woods and a less eclectic approach give the restaurant a softer ambiance than Spoodles. Along the back wall of the entry way, guests will find displays of Cora’s cookbooks (Cat Cora’s Kitchen and Cooking From the Hip) and her new signature wine collection. Coranation Wines, which are the result of a collaboration with Rudd Vineyards, are made with grapes from California’s Russian River and Alexander Valleys and other classic locations.
