That’s because Epic Universe, AKA Universal’s brand new theme park, is set to open! There is a lot of hype surrounding this new park…and for good reason. You can expect to see new coasters, attractions, lands, and hotels solidifying Universal as one of the best. We’ve slowly been getting news drops for each new land coming to Epic Universe, and now it’s time to talk about Dark Universe!

Along with a look at the new concept art and attractions, Universal announced the new restaurants coming to Dark Universe — the classic Universal Monsters-themed land.

First up is the Das Stakehaus (spooky sounding, huh?) This restaurant is set to be a quick-service meal option for diners within the Dark Universe land and has a spooky backstory to it! It’s set inside an  “old inn and dining hall built over the ruins of ancient catacombs.” Here you can dine surrounded by vampire artwork and artifacts, and be served by vampires’ “familiars”, or servants. But don’t go off wandering or you could find yourself served on the opposite side of the vampire’s menu!

This restaurant’s theming and artwork will allow you to explore the world through the monster’s eyes. Das Stakehaus’ various paintings will immerse you within the vampire’s perspectives of the world and the theming and artwork you’ll find will paint them as “heroes in their stories while displaying some of Darkmoor’s history, and referencing its architecture.”

That’s not the only restaurant you’ll find in this land though. The Burning Blade Tavern will also be available to serve your monstrous appetites! This restaurant will also be a quick-service location where visitors will dine with “the old mill which Darkmoor Village’s monster hunters have transformed into their hangout.”

Here diners can feast on the opposite side of the wheelhouse from Das Stakehaus with creature captures listening to their tales that make them the countryside’s most accomplished, as you chow down on a full menu of burgers, wings, bratwursts, pretzels, and beverages. You’ll quickly discover why this is Darkmoor Village’s “hottest” eatery around due to the windmill at the top of the tavern which will erupt into flames several times an hour. When we finally get to see it, Universal has teased there are two types of fuel used in different ratios which allows them to create its visibility any time of the day — or night.

Finally, there will be a snack stand called De Lacey’s CottageNear Frankenstein Manor, it will serve a variety of snacks and sweets including ice cream, cinnamon bread, twisted taters, and more. Anyone who has been to Halloween Horror Nights and tried a twisted tater knows how exciting this is!

Those aren’t the only restaurants you’ll be able to dine at when the new theme park opens. We also got a look at the dining locations for Celestial Park, How to Train Your Dragon — Isle of Berk, and Super Nintendo World. Let’s go over them because honestly, we can’t stop thinking about it!

In January, Universal announced five restaurants coming to Celestial Park. Atlantic is a full-service “surf and turf” restaurant, while The Blue Dragon Pan-Asian Restaurant will take visitors on “a culinary journey across Asia as they enjoy authentic Chinese, Japanese, and Thai fare.”

Some quick service spots are coming to Celestial Park as well including The Oak & Star Tavern (serving BBQ), Pizza Moon, and Moonship Chocolates & Celestial Sweets.

Want to feast like a Viking? You’ll want to head to the Isle of Berk to try the How to Train Your Dragon-inspired restaurants. Mead Hall is the “village’s main gathering hall” and will serve a variety of meats, fish, sandwiches, and more, along with a collection of meads and ciders.

For a quicker bite, there will be Spit Fyre Grill with an (unseen) dragon fry cook and Hooligan’s Grog & Gruel, a racing-themed snack stand. We can’t wait to try them out!

Super Nintendo World is bringing some iconic restaurants we’ve seen at the other versions of this land at Universal parks around the world. That includes Toadstool Cafe, and some snack stands like Yoshi’s Snack Island and Turbo Boost Treats.
