I'm surprised how cheap Toothsome is most of the time...Only $16 or $17 for lunch/dinner most of the time...Sans a shake hahaMy guess is that with all the recent success Universal have enjoyed with family friendly ‘concept’ dining, this will be more on the level of Toothsome for cost and food selection/quality than a high end dining experience. The money is in the mid-range these days.
The only buffet that works IMO is a breakfast one. Though I would love to see more character meal options in the parks, or on citywalkUniversal's version of The Crystal Palace would be popular. A bountiful buffet and characters all the time. And the placement between both parks makes it even better.
