Many of you will remember when in 2012 Disney Food Blog shared exclusive details about a new restaurant coming to Epcot’s Morocco pavilion in Walt Disney World! Yesterday, Disney confirmed that the restaurant will be opening in 2013!
The name has changed since we reported the story, but the details have not! Here’s a recap of what you can expect at the new waterfront restaurant — Spice Road Table — in Epcot later this year…
Spice Road Table Restaurant
Please note that these are exclusive details from the operator of Disney World’s Morocco pavilion restaurants about the restaurant!
Breaking ground this year, the Spice Road Table Restaurant will join Restaurant Marrakesh and Tangierine Cafe to offer authentic Moroccan and Mediterranean cuisine in one of Epcot’s most exotic pavilions.
The new restaurant will combine 120 outdoor terrace seats with 60 indoor seats to offer guests a new option for dining in the World Showcase (and another amazing view of Epcot’s Illuminations fireworks show).
Spice Road Table Menu
The food and drink offerings were described to me as a “Food and Wine Festival all year round.” The menu will include tapas, small plates, olive oils and ingredients, and great wines representing specific Mediterranean countries. Guests will be able to order several dishes from the same country, or mix and match to enjoy several different flavors and influences.
We’ve also been told that the expansion of the Morocco pavilion could see the opening of several new shops, including one selling the olive oils and other ingredients from the restaurant.
In more food news, a small, walk-up window bar selling beverages, cocktails, wines, and pastries could replace the current Morocco pastries kiosk.
We’re so excited to experience this new transformation in Epcot! More waterfront restaurants are always a plus!
