Disney's partners at the Patina Group have made some changes to the menu at Epcot's Space 220 restaurant.
Space 220 opened last year next to the Mission: Space pavilion. The prix-fixe restaurant is themed to be in orbit 220 miles above the Earth, with diners taking a "space elevator" from Disney World up to the dining room. Lunch for adults costs $55 and includes a Lift-Off (appetizer) and Star Course (entrée), while dinner costs $79 and adds a Supernova Sweet (dessert).
The restaurant has added a Steak Salad and Quinoa Burger as Star Course options at lunch, as well as a Short Cake to Supernova Sweets options. The dessert is available as a $14 add-on at lunch.
In addition, Space 220 has added a $24 Shrimp Cocktail with "U 10 Shrimp and Classic Horseradish Cocktail Sauce" to its Flight Bites in the Lounge.
In addition, Space 220 has changed three other menu selections.
The X2 Duck is now Space Glazed Duck Breast, with fried Jasmine rice, asparagus, pineapple and orange Hoisin sauce.
The Roasted Free-range Chicken is now Supreme Chicken Breast, a seared chicken breast with polenta Parmesan cake, petite Balsamic lentils and basil oil.
The Florida Red Snapper now comes with fennel Barigoule and potato stew.
Reservations are pretty much essential for lunch and dinner at Space 220 and can be made on Disney World's website.

The quinoa burger & the red snapper entrees look great!
Any pointers on how to get a reservation ? I have been trying for months and no luck.
Leroyk, it’s my understanding that the lounge part offers the same experience and many of the dishes and does not need a reservation if you find yourself in the park without one (it’s just first in first served)
@Chad H - You still need to have a reservation to visit the lounge, just like Oga's Cantina. When Space 220 first opened, Disney offered walk-up seating for the lounge, but because more guests have discovered the lounge offers a comparable and less structured (and less expensive) experience, it was creating physical lines, so Disney added the lounge as an option to select as an ADR.
Just like any other ADR, guests have to place a deposit to secure one, so no-shows are rare. If you're having trouble finding a reservation, I would recommend continuing to check availability on a regular basis and check multiple times (not just "lunch" or "dinner" offerings) when checking in the system.
I will say that with the Park Pass system things can get really complicated and more rigid than it used to be. You can't simply search for random ADRs and then adjust your park itinerary to mesh. ADRs and Park Pass reservations have to be done in concert, because you can't always decide to switch which park you are visiting at the last minute when an ADR for an in-park restaurant becomes available (unless you have park hoppers and the ADR is after 2 PM).
As with any high demand restaurant, if you aren't able to secure an ADR at the 60-day mark for a high profile experience like Space 220, you can keep checking to see if it comes available, but I highly recommend securing a "back-up" plan.

I wanted to try to get over here during our most recent visit to WDW, but couldn't get Park Passes for EPCOT. I had been reading about Space 220 in anticipation of potentially dining here, and it sounds like this experience is best visited with a Lounge reservation where guests can just get a drink and/or a few menu items instead of being bound by the expensive pre-fixe menu.
