Disney released some new details day for the new table-service restaurant coming to the Japan Pavilion at World Showcase in Epcot. The signature dining experience promises plenty of inspiration by the natural beauty of Japan.
The restaurant will be named Takumi-Tei and will open in the Japan pavilion at Epcot this summer! It will be operated by Mitsukoshi USA (which operates the merchandise, restaurants — Teppan Edo and Tokyo Dining — and kiosks in the Japan pavilion.) The upscale dinner menu will highlight wagyu beef in a sublime setting, and guests interested in the ultimate experience will be able to indulge in a multi-course tasting menu featuring traditional tea service. Signature cocktails and premium sake will be available along with a wine and craft beer menu.
“Takumi-Tei” means “house of the artisan” and the design of the restaurant celebrates the relationship between Japanese craftsmanship and the natural world. Meanwhile, the food is inspired by the collaboration between nature and takumi, the artisan. Guests can also enjoy a special Chef’s Table dining experience in the Water Room which is shown in the image above.
