Toothsome Chocolate Emporium opens at Universal Orlando's CityWalk

August 22, 2016, 8:12 PM · Universal Orlando's newest restaurant opened to the public today. The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen might be a mouthful to say, and the desserts it is serving certainly are a mouthful to eat.

We told you before about the outlandish milkshakes, designed to end up on your Instagram feed soon after hitting your table. But the other desserts appear worthy of attention as well. Reader Lisa H. emailed some photos from her family's visit:

Lisa wrote, "All were quite good and came in at about $12 apiece. The crepe was exceptionally good & the Brookies and Cookies and Creme Sundae was very good as well. The May Contain Nuts Sundae was really heavy on the peanut butter, with it having peanut butter ice cream in addition to all the peanut butter sweets, but we knew that going in so we can't complain!"

In addition to the abundant desserts, Toothsome serves steaks, sandwiches, salads, seafood, pasta... and an all-day brunch menu, too. (A "Savory Feast," indeed!) Universal is saying that the restaurant is in "previews," but Lisa reports that a team member told them that the official opening would be on Aug. 28.

The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen replaced NBA City, which closed last August.

They might in the future but right now it's called come in and wait your turn. They enter your name into their computer system, ask for your phone number and then text you a confirmation of the request and then text you when the table is ready. If you don't want to wait, you can also order food from the bar upstairs and they offered us the option of immediate seating outside but it was way too hot for that even at 6.30pm. I can see the bar being really popular as once the sun went down all the lights outside went on and it was a nice view out over the lagoon to Citywalk.

The 40 minutes went by pretty fast as there were all kinds of goodies to drool over in the store and we watched the shakes being made too. The food was pretty good but typical theme park expensive at $30 for a steak and mushroom flatbread and the buttermilk grilled chicken sandwich.

The set design in there is great and the cast member costumes are really cool especially Penelope and Jack the "managers of the place". Make sure you look at the chandeliers in the back of the bar too, the details on them were great. The only negative was that the elevator wasn't working yet and it was long, steep set of stairs to climb, I felt really sorry for all the poor servers running up and down them with their trays.
