Patina will reportedly be opening a new Italian concept, Maria & Enzo’s, located inside of the very same complex as The Edison on The Landing at Disney Springs. Patina Restaurant Group also currently operates Morimoto Asia, Tutto Italia and Via Napoli in Epcot, and The Edison when it opens later this year. They will even be involved in the upcoming unnamed space restaurant in Future World.
The new Italian restaurant will also feature a speakeasy bar element, themed to an underground rum-running tunnel. This likely means that the restaurant is in basement of The Edison, replacing the long rumored “Neverland Tunnels” and “Walt’s Lounge” concepts originally meant for this space. Maria and Enzo’s is also expected to feature a counter service component of some kind.
Maria & Enzo’s is planned to open late 2017/early 2018.
