    Universal Studios is adding eight new restaurants to its CityWalk dining and entertainment area in 2014, including a North Carolina-based burger and sushi fusion restaurant.

    Universal executives made the announcement Thursday. They also discussed the much anticipated Harry Potter-themed area being built at Universal Studios Florida plus a large new resort. Both will open in 2014.

    The first of the new eateries, Red Oven Pizza Bakery, has already opened. Other original concept restaurants include Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food, The Bread Box, Pranzo Italian Kitchen and the Hot Dog Hall of Fame. A sixth, named The CowFish, is a North Carolina-based restaurant that serves burgers and sushi. Cold Stone Creamery ice cream and Menchies frozen yogurt will also be added.
