It seems like there are a lot of changes happening over at Disney Springs. We just saw this store suddenly close. We saw Trend D recently get a whole new look. The Flavors of Florida event is happening right now for a limited time at Springs, which includes new food options. We also just reported that a new restaurant is coming soon.

On July 18th, Disney announced that a new Indian restaurant, EET by Maneet Chauhan, would be coming to Disney Springs and we’re here to break down everything we know about it. First, here is the restaurant’s logo where you can see an elephant holding a spoon with its trunk as well as the words “Modern Indian”.

Featured Cuisine

Disney revealed that the restaurant will bring “famed Indian cuisine“. They also shared that it will be a”modern, fun Indian-inspired concept”.

What Could the Menu Look Like?

In 2014, Chef Chauhan opened Chauhan Ale & Masala House in Nashville, Tennessee. Here, the restaurant’s menu is “perfectly combining Indian fare with traditional Southern dishes“. Here’s a look at the menu from Chauhan Ale & Masala House and this could give us an idea of what could be to come to Springs. First, Appetizers include Tandoori Chicken Poutine and Cremini Mushroom Toast.

While we wait for the official menu for EET to be released, we can hope to see some of these flavors to be brought to the new restaurant.
