That's an impressive lineup of restaurants which will be even more impressive if Planet Hollywood not only changes its design but its subpar food as well.
Morimoto is the one that struck my eye. I've always wanted to dine at his first place in Philly and his uber-posh place in NYC, but have not had the chance. Great sushi and authentic Asian cuisine can be very difficult to find these days. I have been to Roy's (in Honolulu), and if Morimoto is anywhere close to that, it will be a HUGE hit.
If this comes to pass, it definitely ups the ante in the dining game in Orlando. And although I don't expect to ever eat at the Boathouse, it's important that Disney not go too high end across the board, as I would imagine the majority of visitors are still families and there's only so much money to spend on dining.
Very excited about the new restaurants coming soon to a defunct Pleasure Pier near you. I LOVE any Asian style food, especially Japanese. Too bad they cannot put in a fun Korean BBQ venue...that may be even more fun than Epcots' Hibachi service.
