News: Fulton’s Crab House Becomes Paddlefish this Fall

We’ve got more Disney Springs dining news, my friends!

While much of the recent talk surrounds several eateries still on the way to Disney Springs — AristoCrepes, D-Luxe Burger, Amorette’s Patisserie, Sprinkles, and The Daily Poutine to name just a few — we’ve known for some time that big changes are also in store for Fulton’s Crab House.

Whether or not you’ve ever dined at Fulton’s Crab House, it’s quite likely that you would still recognize this restaurant if you’ve ever paid a visit to Disney Springs (formerly Downtown Disney), thanks to its eye-catching design — a replica of a riverboat that Walt Disney purchased for his wife, Lillian.

However, this longtime landmark will be a little less familiar when it reopens this fall with a new name, look, and added features. Under the name Paddlefish, the cuisine will still focus on fresh seafood (as well as chops and steaks and a new oyster shucking bar). But some plans for the “bow to stern update” resulting in a more modern feel can be seen in the concept art recently posted by Fulton’s Crab House on their Twitter account and Facebook page.

While upcoming dining venues like D-Luxe Burger, Amorette’s Patisserie, Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza, and Sprinkles (just to name a few) have garnered their fair share of headlines, for a while the only information available regarding B.B. Wolf’s Sausage Co. and AristoCrepes was that they are “Coming Soon,” thanks to signs that suddenly appeared in Disney Springs several weeks ago.

In fact, ‘Amorette’ means ‘little love’ in French.” [Read more…]

Remember the big news a few weeks back announcing some of the additions on the way with the continued expansion of Disney Springs? It included the goods on some more new eateries making their way to the area formerly known as Downtown Disney, which are set to open in phases beginning May 15th — spots like Amorette’s Patisserie, the Coca-Cola Store, and a few more details about Sprinkles and its already-famous Cupcake ATM.
