    A new waterfront eatery is due to open at then of this year at the Morocco Pavilion in World Showcase at Epcot.

    Spice Road Table will feature various small plates and refreshments inspired by the cuisine of the Mediterranean. With seating both indoors and out, it’s a welcome addition to the line-up along World Showcase Lagoon.

    Ah. That explains why they are emptying out the souk.

    I did too. There are some items moved to one of the seating areas of Tangierine Cafe. (The area closest to the walkway). I'm not sure if they've moved other items to the shopping areas "deeper" into Morocco. We didn't get that far yesterday as we actually ran out of time! :eek: (That's what happens when you are taking someone who has never been to EPCOT, and they have to look at EVERYTHING! LOL!).

    The henna person was still in the souk, but clearly they were clearing it out. I'm a little relieved to know it's for a new place to eat.

    I wonder why they don't reopen the Odyssey? Maybe the kitchen is too dated or something, but you'd think they'd reopen a place that was so big, huh? :unsure:

    Becca, it is the building behind Test Track as you walk into the World Showcase.

    It's that really old and tired looking building where they now hold special events sometimes. It's to the right as you are facing future world from the world showcase (near the crossover part).

    It's part of the building where there are restrooms and (to the extreme right) the first aid and child care center.

    They used to hold the Food Among the Flowers Mother's Day Brunch there. :yes:

    OH YEAH!! Took me a minute to even remember it! It's such a "non-thing" in my mind. Shame, so much wasted space it seems.

    Some more information is coming through and it sounds like there will be 120 outdoor terrace seats and 60 indoor seats. The restaurant’s menu will offer Mediterranean cuisine as well as Moroccan and will be a variety of tapas, small plates, olive oil and other ingredients.
