Move over, Remi: There’s a new rat chef in town, and he’s not about that hoity-toity French food.

Oh my Gonzo! Disney World is welcoming a new Muppet-themed restaurant to its Hollywood Studios park.

PizzeRizzo, named after the smart-aleck rat from the Muppets series, will replace Toy Story Pizza Planet, which was themed after the hit Pixar franchise.

The restaurant, described as a “casual Italian-American dining experience,” will be plastered with Muppets memorabilia and nods to Rizzo, Kermit, Miss Piggy, and friends. PizzeRizzo will open this fall, though an exact date has yet to be determined. The two-story, quick-service location will have indoor and outdoor seating, a “cheesy” banquet room, and a “special booth designated just for Rizzo’s celebrity friends.”

As PopSugar pointed out, since Pizza Rat became such a viral sensation on Instagram last year, Rizzo’s pizza-making skills might really take off. Either way, that makes two rat chefs on Disney property, including Remi from Ratatouille over in Epcot; We can see how the House of Mouse might have a penchant for rodents.
