Last week Morimoto Asia opened at Disney Springs to much fanfare, and I had the pleasure of attending the media preview the night before, in conjunction with The Disney Blog.
The evening began with a ceremony attended by several Disney VIP’s as well as Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, who not only sang for us, but conducted a traditional sake ceremony involving breaking open a cask with mallets before serving us all with the contents.
Walt Disney World has announced two new restaurants that will be located in their new Disney Springs project. They will be called Morimoto Asia, and The BOATHOUSE (no, I’m not sure why all caps either).
Morimoto Asia is named for famed Master Chef Masaharu Morimoto, and will be the Iron Chef’s first-ever pan-Asian restaurant. It will feature cuisine from across that continent.
The two-story restaurant will feature waterside seating, terraces, a grand hall, and a cocktail lounge. Food will be cooked in exhibition kitchens, and include Peking duck carving and dim sum.
