Bonjour Monsieur! -A Restaurant Review



Au Revoir Bisto de Paris, Bonjour Monsieur Paul!

If you blink walking through Epcot's France Pavilion you just might miss it.  That is the kind of restaurant Monsieur Paul is.  Almost secret-like. Club 33-esque, you could say…without that pesky members only thing!  It sits high atop Chefs de Paris, offering a very unique vantage point in World Showcase.  Other than a quick, backward glance from Maelstrom, this perspective can only be had here.  If you are seated near one of the classically French, floor to ceiling windows, you have the opportunity to linger over that view, sweeping your eyes over passers-by as well as the lagoon (or the Seine River at this point- you are in Paris).

Inside, the newly remodeled restaurant is somewhat whimsical, with shades of cream, muted blue and pink.  Crystal chandeliers and sconces mimic the curved lines in the ceiling and the white tablecloths give the space a bright elegant feel.

The staff all hail from France and they are eager to share their home, culture and cuisine with you.  I began with Salade au Roquefort a la poire et aux noix de pecan caramelizes.  Translated, that would be a salad with Roquefort cheese, pears and caramelized pecans.  As a Celiac, I tend to stay away from Blue Cheese, as the mold is sometimes grown on a wheat source.  When in doubt, go without.  However, the French know their cheeses and the Chef was extremely knowledgeable.  The waiter even proudly proclaimed that this very cheese came from the region he lived in.  I had to try this cheese!

The salad was light, refreshing and the cheese was spectacular!

Next, I ordered Magret de canard a l'orange, pommes paillasson, jeune carottes.  Translation: Duck with orange sauce over shredded potatoes and carrots.  This was well cooked and absolutely scrumptious!

I realize this is a sin of mountainous proportions, but I simply was not hungry enough for dessert.  We left, planning to stop in at L'Artisan des Glaces after a good walk around World Showcase.

This restaurant is tops on my list.  You can't beat the view, the feel is so quaintly French, the food delectable and the service top-notch!

Bon Appetit!



XO, Ami
