LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Disney World has a new cat in town. Celebrity chef Cat Cora is partnering with the Orlando area theme park to open a new Mediterranean-style restaurant.
Kouzzina, to be owned and operated by Disney, is scheduled to open by fall 2009 on Disney's BoardWalk in the space currently occupied by Spoodles.
Cora, who is the only female Iron Chef on Food Network's hit show "Iron Chef America," grew up in a family of Greek restaurateurs.
She says the new restaurant will feature "time-honored recipes passed down from my ancestors, as well as my favorite Greek and Mediterranean dishes that my family loves."
