Celebrity Chefs Morimoto and Smith Plan a Progressive Dinner at the Springs

This is just the sort of thing you hope might happen with the celebrity chef-driven restaurants at Disney Springs.

On Saturday, Dec. 3, Masaharu Morimoto of Morimoto Asia and Art Smith of Homecoming Florida Kitchen will host Sake & Shine, a progressive dinner between their two D-Springs restaurants.

The evening will begin second floor terrace at Morimoto Asia with three Pan-Asian courses selected by the Iron Chef himself. They’re include Alaskan King Crab and Nantucket Bay Scallop “Ankake” over crispy noodles; five-spiced braised beef short rib with a Sansho Peppercorn Sauce and Wilted Dou Milao; and a special sushi course showcasing ingredients of Morimoto’s native Japan.

From there, guests will take a short walk across the courtyard to Homecoming, where Smith will offer the sweet endings to the evening. Guests will be able to indulge in a Build-Your-Own-Florida-Strawberry-Shortcake-Bar while also enjoying Smith’s signature Hummingbird and Shine Cakes.

The evening will also include a variety of beer, wine, sake and moonshine cocktails throughout. Morimoto and Smith have promised to be active participants in the evening and will be available for -graphs — both photo and auto — throughout.

Tickets for the event are $225 per person, which includes tax and gratuities. Things get started at 7:30 p.m. at Morimoto Asia. This link will take you to the Sake & Shine web page where you can reserve your place. Or call 407-939-MOTO for more information.

I’m glad to see these busy chefs do more than just slap their names on a restaurant. I’m hoping to see more of this type of collaboration taking place.
