    This was in Eric Davis' update. It's a temporary paint job, right?

      The paint on Antojitos looks like the 1980s threw up all over it; I hope jcruise86 is right that it’s only temporary. Universal has been doing so well in theming and placesetting that choosing a color combination like this for real would be a real step backwards.

        I’m with you and don’t like the colours (they are off-putting) but I’m afraid they are exactly as the artwork offered so I’m afraid we are stuck with it for now. I’m sure enough people will complain and they’ll paint it in a nice colour. What we are left with is a great eatery because I really dig what they are going to offer.

          Tielo, your “off putting” is polite. I’d go with hideous, aggressively ugly, or Freddie’s “looks like the 80s threw up all over it”. Maybe a talented artist made it look interesting in a small, impressionist drawing, but someone at Universal (maybe the great Steve Burke himself) needs to say that the emperor’s clothes take garish to a level never before seen. That paint job gives color a bad name. Somewhere a rainbow is crying.

      I'm not hating it. I'm glad to see the splash of southwestern colors. I do hope the final product will look more adobe and less day-glo, but still glad to see something unique in the space.

        Yeah, this is awful.

        That said, it's not in the park at least...

          The "80's threw up all over it" was my reaction to the concept drawings.

            It looks like it was painted with a paint-ball gun.

                It's getting detail work now.

                Still looks really awful.

                  Wow- decoration by paintball, indeed. I hope they fix it.

                    I started this thread because it shocked me at first, but I've seen more photos and I'm hating it less. I guess it's better to be bad than boring. If the food and service are great and it's reasonably priced I'll forgive the exterior.

                    I hope the new Harry Potter restaurant is well themed and excellent and (hint hint) I'm looking forward to seeing more details of that.

                      I haven't eaten there, but I've heard good things about Antojitos, except for portions being too small for the price.

                      Don't get too excited about Leaky Cauldron. I'm under the impression it'll serve much of the same food as Three Broomsticks.

                        Is it supposed to be tie-dye? If so, is that a Mexican or Tex-Mex color scheme? Whatever was intended, it won't last.

                          This place looks like it just got back from a Grateful dead concert.

                            Well, it's hideous, but to me it's the fun kind of hideous. The kind of thing you can show people like "See? Somebody actually painted something in splotchy neon colours because they thought it LOOKED GOOD" Reminds me of being a kid.
