Looks like Scotland is getting its share of the Food & Wine Festival this year with one of the two new booths announced! I'm sure this will be a welcomed addition.

I'm guessing this kiosk in Scotland would be India since Vesuvius Grille already had a renovation that looks Mediterranean. Besides, Scotland already has enough alcoholic drinks so I doubt it would be the new Cocktail Bar.

Will that area be across from the clydsdale carousel and smoking section or did they remove that smoking section? If the smoking section is still there, seems like a bad place to put a food location. I always thought a smoking section near a kids ride was bad form.

Okay so I don't smoke and I never have nor will I ever but I *love* walking through clouds of certain types of cigarettes because it reminds me going out dancing at dive bars.

Is that weird?

I can appreciate sweet smelling cigarettes. (Haven't had one in almost 5 years)

To answer your question, yes its across from Lil Clydes. And the smoking section was removed from there. The closest smoking section is to the left of Abbey Stone Theater.

How does the Vesuvius Grill renovation look?

Stop trying to make consensus happen. It's not gonna happen.

This year, I am NOT going to avoid the F&W Festival, as I have in the past. What are your DON'T MISS food recommendations? Smiling

Here is our comprehensive review of the 2016 F&WF; and here is a broader look at the event.

Both have specific recommendations:  

"This year we have decided to split our report into two parts: (1) an overview of the booths and (2) a review of the festival as a whole. The former will include our favorite dishes from each kiosk, while the latter, which we will publish next week, will highlight other recommended entrees and our selections for best dessert. We once again elected to rate the sweets against each other, rather than comparing them to the savory options at each kiosk, and as a result, each has its own “Best in Booth.”  We did not select a favorite entree or dessert, when there was only one available; first place was not given by default."

We will be doing the 2017 review the first weekend, and will hopefully publish before the second.
