THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Don Quixote Restaurant Review

: Built by a big fan of the Cervantes masterpiece, this 13,000-square-foot, two-story restaurant re-creates the town of La Mancha circa 1605, with shops, rectory, balconies, and, of course, a windmill. Unfortunately, the expensive, 17-page menu never took off with the public, and after closing the town gates for some months, Don Quixote reopened as an all-you-can-eat Spanish buffet with over fifty tapas, various meat, fish, poultry and paella dishes, and lots of salads and sides. The good news is lunch is now only $12.95, dinner just $19.95, which makes the experience of dining in this unique room affordable for all. The bad news is you get what you pay for, and the formerly fine cuisine has definitely been cheapened. So has the ambience with the addition of four TV screens. Oh well, guess progress has even come to La Mancha. It may be an impossible dream to expect a great dinner here, but brunches are fun and include all the Champagne and mimosas you can manage.
