Introducing Shiki-Sai: Sushi Izakaya, a new table-service restaurant set to debut this summer inside the Japan Pavilion at EPCOT! This new dining location will be taking the place of Tokyo Dining, which closed it’s door back November of 2022.
This new dining experience promises to offer a “festive dining experience in a sharable Izakaya-style”. For the uninitiated, Izakaya is a Japanese-style pub that typically offers an array of small plates and shared dishes, as well as beer, sake, and other alcoholic beverages.
