The 2013 urban fantasy manga ‘Isekai Shokudou’ has been published in English as ‘Restaurant to Another World’ by Seven Seas Entertainment since June 18, 2019. It is written by Junpei Inuzuka and is published by the Japanese magazine Shufunotomo. Its popularity led to an anime adaption in 2017, which kicked off its second season titled ‘Restaurant to Another World 2’ in 2021 after a four-year hiatus.
Funimation announced on their website that they had acquired the rights to produce an English dub that will stream to their app for North American audiences.
“Order up! We’re excited to announce that the Restaurant to Another World 2 English dub is officially headed to Funimation as part of the Fall 2021 anime season lineup,” they explained on their website. “Episode 1 of the Restaurant to Another World 2 English dub arrives on Funimation, returning us all to the fantasy isekai world where the patrons are mythical creatures and beasts of all kinds—and the food is delectable.”
“The English cast of the series includes Christopher R. Sabat (Dragon Ball Super, My Hero Academia) as Chef, Jill Harris (The Quintessential Quintuplets, SSSS.GRIDMAN) as Aletta and Monica Rial (Dragon Ball Super, Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!) as Kuro,” Funimation said.
The rest of the cast includes Corinne Sudberg as Alicia, Charlie Campbell as Artorius, Marcus D. Stimac as Captain, Tyson Rinehart as Gaganpo, Trisha Nishimura as Hilda, Jeremy Inman as Lionel, and Xanthe Huynh as Ranija. Caitlin Glass will serve as ADR Director.

MyAnimeList describes the synopsis:
“In Tokyo lies a small restaurant called “Western Cuisine Nekoya,” ordinary in every way―save one. Every Saturday, its door connects to another world! Follow along as a cavalcade of curious guests from half-elves to samurais, dragons, halflings and vampires enter its premises, all with the same goal in mind: to fill their stomachs with the most mouth-watering of foods.”
