Does anyone know what happened to Wolfgang Puck's restaurant at DCA?

Wolfgang Puck's Avalon Cove closed on Monday, October 1, 2001. Robert Mondalvi also removed his name from the Golden Vine Winery the same week. Both places were bought out by Disney for the same reason: Puck and Mondalvi both thought their restaurants weren't attracting enough people and weren't making enough money.

Avalon Cove was refurbished into Ariel's Grotto, where you can meet The Little Mermaid as you eat your fish dinner -- and also see dine with Chip & Dale, Goofy, Pluto and Minnie, all dressed in cute nautical outfits.

The winery is still open and run by Disney but Robert Mondavi now presents the Seasons of the Vine attraction in the same area.

Ooooh.

   My friend kept telling me to eat there, but I could never find it. He kept describing what sounded like Ariel's Grotto. Now I know why.
