New name for the upcoming Rick Bayless gourmet Mexican restaurant at Disney Springs

Apr 29, 2016 in "Frontera Cocina"

The upcoming gourmet Mexican restaurant at Disney Springs has a new name - Frontera Cocina.


Originally announced as Frontera Fresca back in October, it was then renamed Tablas Frontera in February.

In February it was said "Tablas Frontera will delight friends, family and food-lovers with exciting flavors and a contemporary Mexican experience. Warm colors, an open kitchen and a lively atmosphere frame an inviting exploration of the many delights from the kitchen of renowned chef Rick Bayless. The delicious, enticing presentation of grilled meats, seafood and vegetables served on planks (tablas) promote sharing and togetherness."

It isn't yet clear if the name change will reflect a change in presentation, as Tablas referred to the food being served on planks. Cocina simply means kitchen.

Frontera Cocina, is set to open this summer in the new Town Center district of Disney Springs.
