The Wolfgang Puck Express restaurant in Downtown Disney Marketplace will reopen tomorrow with an updated design and décor, double its previous seating capacity and several new menu items, after temporarily closing for remodeling in January.

“After more than a decade of success in Downtown Disney Marketplace, we are very excited to have renewed our lease and remodeled the restaurant to provide our guests with a freshly updated Wolfgang Puck Express,” says Ron Biskin, president, Wolfgang Puck Express.

Chef Puck’s famous theatrical open kitchen and hearth-style oven serve as the heart of the 4,600-square foot, 173-seat restaurant, creating an active and dynamic staging area for the culinary team. The entire kitchen features new state-of-the-art equipment to prepare Wolfgang’s signature dishes, including a new rotisserie oven, where the restaurant roasts all-natural rotisserie chicken, turkey and roast beef.

One of the new restaurant additions is a frozen yogurt bar featuring nonfat vanilla and chocolate yogurt with a choice of fresh seasonal fruit, granola, assorted nuts, chocolate chip, and chopped cookie and brownie toppings. Other new menu items include Pizza with Meatball and Parmesan, Chicken Tortilla Melt and Four Cheese Macaroni Al Forno, Rigatoni with Chicken Bolognese and Spaghetti with Meatballs.

The restaurant’s minimalist design features the brand’s deep chocolate brown and accent green colors, sumptuous leather booths and banquettes, light wood table tops, and two family-style tables, making Wolfgang Puck Express the perfect gathering place for friends and family, whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Other design features include black and white photos of Chef Puck and fresh ingredients that are commonplace in the kitchen. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors offer a complete view of the bustling dining room from the new and expanded patio with brick columns and awnings.

As part of Wolfgang’s Eat, Love and Live (WELL) program, Wolfgang Puck Express offers products that meet the natural, fresh and organic standards of the company and a commitment to sourcing from local family farmers and purveyors, whenever possible, who support the humane treatment of animals. “Our goal is provide our guests freshly prepared quality meals at affordable prices, served with Wolfgang Puck’s genuine hospitality. We are thrilled to reopen and once again welcome guests to our restaurant,” says Shaneena Tremblay, general manager, Wolfgang Puck Express.
