Summer House on the Lake Restaurant Coming to Disney Springs in 2023, Replacing Canceled Beatrix Site

A new restaurant has finally been announced for the space formerly planned for Beatrix, which was canceled last year. The new location is a spin-off of the popular Chicago and North Bethesda, MD restaurant Summer House Santa Monica named Summer House on the Lake.

The news was announced on the official Summer House Santa Monica Instagram page today.

Summer House on the Lake will take the location formerly reserved for the Beatrix Restaurant, which was canceled last year. Nearest to that area are the AMC Theatres Disney Springs and the newly-opened Salt & Straw, which itself took the place of another canceled eatery.

Disney and Lettuce Entertain You had previously announced that Beatrix was merely “on hold” after we revealed its cancellation last year, but it seems they decided not to go forward with that particular project. Lettuce Entertain You is the owner of both Beatrix and Summer House Santa Monica, which are both considered Chicago staples.

The interior is mostly white with wood and wicker accents all around, fitting their typical restaurant aesthetic at their other two locations.

  1. Here we go again with ambiguous theming and stale design elements. Looks like something that could be found in trendy cities like Toronto, Austin, or Portland. Not unique to Disney at all. More of the same dull theme and design. Color me unimpressed.
