Space 220 is the new restaurant coming to EPCOT, located near Mission Space. The story behind it is that guests will be taken 220 miles up into space to eat at this special location.
Thanks to an article on Totalfood.com, we’ve learned two new things about the upcoming Space 220 Restaurant coming soon to EPCOT:
1. The Flatware is expensive. 2. it will likely open next month.
The article is actually about William Welch, CEO of Studio William, and his flatware deal with the Patina Restaurant Group, who also run restaurants like Via Napoli and Tutto Italia:
“Next month, Patina Restaurant Group (PRG) is set to launch into space with the opening of Space 220 inside EPCOT Center, creating everlasting magic in the city known for doing just that.
The 375-seat restaurant is inspired by the cosmos, and to anchor their tabletop specification in a space with so much gravity (or lack thereof?), PRG’s procurement team selected the ultra-sleek Tilia pattern, in black.“
In those two paragraphs we learned that the Patina Restaurant Group will open “Next Month” and is going to have “ultra-sleek,” black flatware.
But Disney Food Blog actually went and looked into the “elongated,” “space age quality” flatware and found out that a 16 piece set, service for four, retails for almost $330.00.
While I’m sure that is not what they end up paying for the cutlery, it will likely still be very expensive. I’m over here have the Galaxy’s Edge spork flashbacks. Since it’s table service, people will probably be less likely to try and flip them on eBay.
Now we have an idea of when we can expect the restaurant to open. I’m thinking it is going to be expensive based on the choice of spacey, black flatware alone.
