Wolfgang Puck leaving WDW Downtown Disney?
Taking his Puck and going home?
The < Orlando Sentinel > has heard a rumor there could be a change in store at Downtown Disney. Insiders say that Chicago-based restaurant company Levy Restaurants, which owns Portobello Yacht Club and Fulton's Crab House on Disney property, is striking a deal with Wolfgang Puck Grand Café to buy the restaurant and change the concept. The Wolfgang Puck restaurant, which offers Californian cuisine, was created by one of the country's most recognizable chefs of the same name. Officials at both Levy Restaurants and with Wolfgang Puck Café would not comment. Rumors had circulated earlier this year about the future of Puck's restaurant chain. His business partner and wife, Barbara Lazaroff, filed for divorce last November.

Remember last year when Wolfgang Puck's restaurant at Disney's California Adventure closed? Hmmmmm....

I will miss it very much if it goes. The downstairs eatery was one of the most affordable places with good food if you were making a quick stop over there coming or going from a mall in Orlando, or were there for the night to see a movie. I only hope that Levy doesn't put in a too high end of a restaurant,
as I don't think that would go over too well at the Westside.
