The permit lists the address 1773 Avenue of the Stars, which is located just off to the side of La Bottega Italiana. The description of the work to be done states “Install new food vending building”, meaning an entirely new kiosk—or full-on dining location—may be in the works. The work is to be done by Icarus Exhibits, a rather high-profile firm considering they’ve done work related to Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and even Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.
The expiration date for the permit is listed as December 31, 2021, so in the meantime, these construction walls at the Italy Pavilion may be up for some time while we await the debut of the new location.
