French Quarter food court prepares for re-opening on 19 Nov

So is everyone ready for Saturday's grand re-opening of the Port Orleans French Quarter food court? There's still some decor detail to be completed (although it seems that the ceiling will be plainer than before) but they are already testing out the kitchens on some very willing cast member victims (no guests yet, sorry) and the feedback is pretty good!

Breakfast choices include Sweet Potato Belgian Waffles, Buttermilk Pancakes with various toppings, Grilled Steak and Scrambled Eggs, Whole Grain Croissant Breakfast Sandwich, Crispy Fried Chicken on Biscuit with Maple Bacon Jam. All apparently served on real flatware with real cutlery rather than the previous paper plates and plastic knives and forks (which also means less waste I assume). The beverage island now features eight Coca Cola Freestyle machines instead of the previous two multi-dispenser units for cold drinks.

As we reported previously, the Grand Opening will be on Saturday morning at 8:30am, spread the news! So is anyone planning to head over there? Here are a few quick teaser pictures to whet your appetite...

I'll post the full menu when I get home this evening, but to cover some specific questions people asked... Biscuits and Gravy, Gumbo, and Beignets are still there. Ice Cream is now Gelato (yum!), Po'Boys are there, but with new options of Catfish, Shrimp, or Beef Debris. There's Create-Your-Own Pasta and a CYO-Rice Bowl, and also a meat & three veg option. It all looks very varied with lots of nice choices.

As a Vegetarian I'm really disappointed with the new menu. My one complaint about FQ has been the lack of veggie friendly options and I was hoping that the new menu would address that - but it seems even more disappointing than previously.

Most of the breakfast options seem fine (just ask for them not to put meat on the platters, etc) and all of the Make Your Own options would be fine for veggies too (salad, pasta, rice). However I guess you're right in that most of the lunch/dinner entrees (as served anyway) seem to be catering more towards the evolutionary hunter/carnivore market. :)

I'm sure as with other food lifestyle choices and allergy requirements, you would be able to ask to have some entrees to be made in a particular way for you though.
