Walt Disney World is expanding the dining options at Epcot with Spice Road Table at the Moroccan Pavilion.
Inspired by the outdoor cafes along the Mediterranean, the restaurant will serve small plates like zesty harissa chicken drumettes; a Mediterranean omelet with sausage, potatoes and caramelized onion; mussels with preserved lemons and tomato sauce baked in an earthenware tagine pot; Moroccan merguez sausage with a fresh tomato salad; and garlicky jumbo shrimp in a spicy chile pepper sauce.
Spice Road Table will be situated along the lagoon side of the pavilion, offering a great view of the World Showcase, and Illuminations in the evening. It will feature 120 outdoor terrace seats, and the inside will seat 60 with cozy booths, Moroccan light fixtures, tilework, tapestries and art representing Morocco’s indigenous Berber tribes.
This will be the third eatery in the Morocco pavilion, joining The Tangierine Café, which features a variety of Moroccan sandwiches and specialty pastries, and Restaurant Marrakesh, where savory dishes, Moroccan music and belly dancers showcase the authentic charm of the North African country.
Spice Road Table is set to open in 2014.
