We are extremely excited to learn more about a new restaurant coming to Epcot in Walt Disney World! This new restaurant will be a table service dining location, which will be located in the Japan pavilion within Epcot’s World Showcase. This restaurant will offer a signature dining experience that is inspired by the natural beauty of Japan. There will even be a Chef’s Table dining experience offered in the water room (artist rendering below).
The restaurant name is confirmed to be Takumi-Tei, which means house of the artisan. “The design celebrates the relationship between Japanese craftsmanship and the natural world, while the food is inspired by the wonderful collaboration between nature and takumi, the artisan.” Guests will find waqyu beef on the menu, plus a multi-course tasting menu including a traditional tea service.
Takumi-Tei is set to open in Epcot this summer. It will be operated by Mitsukoshi USA, which also operates the other restaurants at the pavilion as well as the merchandise locations.
Who else can’t wait to check out Takumi-Tei at Walt Disney World?
