Gordon's never worked with Disney far as I know. I believe his Caesars deal prevents him from opening up restaurants in other hotels. Probably not Springs, at least until he opened up something at ICON.
Apparently he bought a place in celebration. A fiend of my wife has seen him taking walks there. Maybe he will try to open more.

He has a Gordon Ramsay Burgers coming to a Hilton in Fall near Boston. I would assume his Caesars deal only goes as far as Gaming places.
Huh. That's new! Guess that could work, although I have no doubt there's some kind of exclusivity clause in Icon's contract with him preventing a higher-end restaurant at Springs, even if it'd make a ton of cash...

I'd go to a hole in the wall serving tacos and tortas, menu only in Spanish , condiment bar to dress the food anyway of the week instead of Tex Mex. One thing I miss in Texas is the two main food groups , tacos ( breakfast, lunch and dinner ) and barbeque.

Sounds like the smart choice.

My favorite TexMex in Texas is Papasitos. A bit expensive. But, ALWAYS good!

I'm amazed at how many really good steak places are down here in Orlando and I'm not complaining!!!
Business convention travelers ( pre covid ) on expense account on International Drive love to eat at steak places. But if one is talking sushi, tempura etc all u can eat , Suki Hanna near the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes Orlando is delish.

I wish Marriott would put in a real pizzeria. They're losing business to that pizza window at BW and that window loses out on a ton of business because waits stack up to 45-60 minutes for grab and go. Leave it open late to service the bar crowds and the guests returning from the parks. I bet BW and YB guests would wander through, too. Make a stack of money.

I agree. Actually, a mini food hall-type set up with easy grab and go could do quite well. Things like pizza, bao, chicken, etc. 3 or 4 little stalls selling street food. It's a concept I'm surprised Disney hasn't jumped on more given its popularity and ease of swapping out concepts easily.

Harambe Market was somewhat inspired by that. But, they quickly went to a single menu. So, it was more African-inspired quick service lightly themed to a food hall. (Though the analogy is a valid one.) The Simpsons food court is another one somewhat like it, though it's more Food Court vs. Food Hall.

Admittedly wishful thinking, but such a setup would also allow for more local businesses (like The Polite Pig and Gideon's) to have a presence. My local mall does the same thing in their food court, local vendors on two-year leases that allow for concepts to cycle in and out to keep things fresh.
