An official opening window has been announced for the brand new restaurant that’s coming to the Japan pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase. The restaurant, named Takumi-Tei (which means house of the artisan), will open in Summer 2019 and will offer an upscale dinner menu with signature items and cocktails.
Disney released a few details about the menu:
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.Disney
Disney also revealed there will be a special Chef’s Table in an area called the Water Room, which is pictured at the top of this article.
A location offering wagyu beef at Epcot is certainly noteworthy. Guests will need to book reservations well in advance of their trip and should expect a signature dining experience.
Takumi-Tei will be operated by Mitsukoshi USA, the same group that operates the restaurants and kiosks already in the Japan pavilion.
