Morimoto Asia hosted their second installment of their Guest Chef Series this past Sunday with a collaboration with The Polite Pig, both Disney Springs restaurants. The event, “Pigs N’ Pints” was truly a unique gastronomic event featuring locally and nationally celebrated chefs, Yuhi Fujinaga plus James and Julie Petrakis.  During the family friendly event there were multiple food stations and local breweries.  Tickets for the event were $55 (adults) $25 (children 12 and under) + tax and gratuity.
