While most spaces are filled at Disney Springs, there is a huge construction site in Disney Springs’ West Side for the announced Beatrix restaurant. Here’s what we know about the restaurant:
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.”
Here’s a look back at the construction site as it sat in late-March.
While visiting Disney Springs recently, we noticed that there hasn’t been any movement on the site, and that nature has started to take over a bit.
We reached out to Beatrix to ask if the project had been canceled, and a spokesperson confirmed that construction has been paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They went on to say that a start date for construction has not been identified, but did not say that the project was canceled.
Ample Hills Creamery recently announced that they would not be going forward with their plans to open a Disney Springs location which happens to be located just steps from the Beatrix construction site.
