This restaurant under construction, recently photographed here on TPI, is to be a lounge, "offering a variety of Moroccan small plates and specialty drinks." The restaurant's designers state that the lakeside establishment will be "perfect for IllumiNations viewing." The update also provided a glimpse at the contents of a menu at the Table; diners will be able to select between "zesty harissa chicken drumettes" or "a Mediterranean omelet with sausage, potatoes and caramelized onion", perhaps "mussels with preserved lemons and tomato sauce baked in an earthenware tagine pot", "Moroccan merguez sausage with a fresh tomato salad", or potentially still "garlicky jumbo shrimp in a spicy chile pepper sauce."
Speaking of the restaurant's aesthetic elements, the Table is said to have been inspired by "the outdoor cafes along the Mediterranean; the whitewashed façade of Spice Road Table is accented in icy shades of blue from the famous “Blue City” of Chefchaouen in Morocco’s Rif Mountains." The building will jointly contain the Spice Road Table, with 120 "outdoor terrace seats" and 60 "indoor booths", and a "collection of shops in the colorful style of a Moroccan souk, or marketplace, that stretches along the front of the building" alongside a "henna tattoo artist will create temporary body art from traditional and modern designs."
