There’s been lots of speculation from our readers and other Kouzzina fans as to why the restaurant will be closing, and on Monday, April 14th, Cat Cora addressed the closure of Kouzzina on Reddit:

“We’re at the end of our contract, and Disney and I want to do more projects together. But this is a really great time for them to focus on a new concept in that space and I can focus on more restaurants around the world. It’s all good, and I’ll still be at the Epcot festival of food & wine this year.”

With official confirmation of the Kouzzina closure as of September 30th, we’re now looking forward to seeing what’s in store for this space.

Fans of Kouzzina are sure to miss the awesome breakfasts! And fans of Cat Cora can mark their calendars for this year’s Epcot Food and Wine Festival! [Read more…]
