The Enchanted Oak Tavern was a good food stop by theme park standards, but I am sure it, or something like it, will be part of HP land.
On the other hand, I am glad to see some HP progress. They need to get that expansion constructed before interest in HP related product reaches an all time low....
Someone pass me a butterbeer....
Anyway, why not keep them both? If anything, they seem to fit most in the Harry Potter theme
I cant believe they closed the enchanted oak! I loved the food there. I'll be going back there tomorrow to check out the scene. Oh, and is it me or does this construction seem to be going at a snail's pace?
As for Oak, when we ate there two weeks ago, I was pretty underwhelmed. Perhaps that was because the place's days were numbered. But I found the mac and cheese gummy and the corn dry. The turkey leg was okay, but not worth the raves that this place had been getting.
Robert I think that you were probably right about the reason your meal was a little subpar. Unless I've just been lucky, the food there was the best, and the bar was nice too.
Twisted Mac, Chicken & CheeseA grilled chicken breast tops off twisted Cavatappi pasta tossed in a lightly spiced 3-cheese sauce, with garlic, roasted red peppers and Romano parsley bread crumbs. Served with a side of garlic toast.
Now, that was some darn good mac n' cheese! ;-)
But the Oak would make a *great* Willow, so I wonder if it might be rethemed to something else for that.
FWIW, Natalie and I have been joking that the Flying Unicorn would become the Flying Buckbeak for about three years now.
