My sweet tooth just got excited Insiders because The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium is coming to the CityWalk at Universal Studios Hollywood! This exciting new restaurant will be replacing The Hard Rock Cafe. The Hard Rock was an extremely popular dining spot at CityWalk, however I personally think that a refresh was needed and this is the PERFECT restaurant to replace it!
A couple years ago I had the chance to dine at the one in Orlando and it was the most amazing experience. The ambience was very unique and the food was amazing. And of course, the dessert was absolutely to die for! If you’re lucky, you’ll even have the opportunity to meet Penelope Tibeaux-Tinker Toothsome, the creator of the restaurant, and Jacques, her robot friend. I had the pleasure of meeting these characters at the Orlando location and it was such a fun experience! I left the restaurant really wishing they had one of these here at the CityWalk in Hollywood, and it looks like my wish has been granted!
If you’re not familiar with The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium here is the official description on the Orlando CityWalk website:
Extraordinary foodstuffs abound at this full-service restaurant, bar and confectionary. Indulge in classic dishes like steak and seafood, but save room for the grand finale. Our chefs create culinary alchemy with gourmet chocolates, artisanal milkshakes and sumptuous sundaes. It’s a 19th century themed dream, and a truly fantastical feast.
They have a wide range of fantastic and mouth-watering options on their menu including crab and artichoke dip, Toothsome Nicoise, an amazing selection of flatbreads and sandwiches, pastas, and so much more! You can view their full menu here. You will want to be sure to save room for dessert because their milkshakes are so rich and out of this world!
There is no official opening date for The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium in Hollywood (the sign only states that is “Coming Soon”), but it was originally to open this year (2021). We are nearing the end of the year and I’m not sure if it looks anywhere near completed yet so the pandemic may have delayed the opening. All I know is that I am so excited for this restaurant to open and if you haven’t experienced it yet Insiders, you are in for a treat!
