Since the change from Downtown Disney to Disney Springs, we have seen a number of new restaurants including Jaleo, BOATHOUSE and Paddlefish. The latest announcement from Disney is the replacement for Bongos: Beatrix.

Beatrix, owned by Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises (a Chicago-based restaurant group), will open their first restaurant in Florida at Disney Springs West Side. Beatrix is your neighborhood restaurant, coffeehouse and grab-and-go market featuring healthy food options including vegetarian, gluten-free, and vegan along with fresh-squeezed juice cocktails. The restaurant will also offer a bakery and full-service bar with a selection of all-American beer and wine. Executive Partner and Divisional President, Marc Jacobs, explains “Beatrix represents the way people are eating today – it’s that mix of health and comfort. Whether grabbing a cup of coffee and your favorite pastry, or having a cocktail, lunch, or dinner with friends, it’s your neighborhood meeting place.” 

Kelsey Noland, Graphic Designer and Social Community Manager, Disney Springs

We will definitely be there on opening day to experience the flavors!

  1. I will be curious to see how this fits into that huge space. Just another place I will have to try. one trip I need to skip the parks and just spend our days eating all the new food!

    • Let me know when you plan this because I would love to join you LOL :dingle:

      • I know, right!!! just eat all day and all night!!

        • We’d probably go broke, but it’d be soooooo worth it

          • I think it would have to be a month long, but yes soooooooo worth it!! :P

  2. Sounds fantastic! I have a gluten allergy… and I eat a heavy plant based diet… so I’m really excited about this one! Yay to Disney for bringing some healthier options to WDW!

  3. all i’m gonna say is i don’t go to disney to eat healthy food :P LOL

  4. I only ate at Bongos once, but I’m still a little sad to see it go because I think it was something different from the norm. However, this also looks like a different offering so at least the replacement seems good :)

  5. I think it would have to be a month long, but yes soooooooo worth it!! :P
