Delaware North’s Patina Restaurant Group last week announced new details about its latest signature table-service restaurant and lounge, Space 220 Restaurant, opening this winter.
The restaurant, located in Epcot® at Walt Disney World® Resort, will invite guests to feel as though they have traveled into the cosmos. The simulated expedition will provide stunning views of Earth by day and night in a new out-of-this-world culinary experience among the stars.
The adventure begins when a crew member invites guests to step inside the restaurant’s space elevator and prepare for liftoff. Guests will feel as if they are on a scenic excursion traveling 220 miles directly above Earth’s surface, docking at the Centauri Space Station suspended just beyond the orbit of Mission: SPACE. Upon their arrival at the restaurant, guests will be guided to their seats past the grow zone, a spinning wall of produce that mimics Earth’s gravity and represents some of the fresh ingredients used by the culinary team.
“I look forward to welcoming guests to Space 220, an immersive culinary journey intended to celebrate the wonders of our solar system and transport guests 220 miles above Earth’s surface to experience the height of dining,” said Nick Valenti on behalf of Patina Restaurant Group.
?Over the past 20 years, Valenti and Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products have worked together to develop several iconic locations on both coasts, including Enzo’s Hideaway and Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs® as well as Tutto Italia and Via Napoli in Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, along with Naples Ristorante e Bar in Downtown Disney® District at Disneyland® Resort in California.
Space 220 will feature the celestial panorama of a space station combined with gourmet menu offerings. Visitors can expect to witness the sublime sights of passing satellites or floating astronauts while enjoying interstellar dishes during a one-of-a-kind dining experience.
