The France pavilion at Epcot has opened a new upscale restaurant in place of Bistro de Paris. Monsieur Paul is described as less formal than its predecessor Bistro de Paris with its makeover that debuted Tuesday December 11, 2012.

The new décor captures classic French architecture with a touch of modernism. The restaurant will also be decorated with mementos from Chef Paul Bocuse’s culinary honors. The restaurant’s approach to French dining includes the wait staff in an elegant but approachable look.

Monsieur Paul restaurant introduces the culture and the authentic taste of French cuisine that Chef Paul Bocuse introduced to the world. Paul Bocuse has achieved three Michelin stars for 48 straight years at his famous Lyon restaurant, Auberge du Pont de Collonges. However, the restaurant does not want to replicate these dishes, but serve interpretations of them with the new restaurant.

The menu includes dishes such as Soupe aux Truffles V.G.E. (black winter truffle and beef broth soup), Homard du Maine à L’Armoricaine, riz Pilaf (Maine lobster, vegetable brunoise, bisque, rice Pilaf) and Carré d’Agneau en croute d’herbes, pissaladière Niçoise, cassolette de flageolet (herb crusted rack of lamb Niçoise style tart with goat cheese, onions, arugula cassoulette of flageolet beans). To finish things off, Soufflé chaud au Grand Marnier (warm Grand Marnier soufflé) and Entremet au trois chocolats (triple chocolate cake) are just two of the desserts.

Monsieur Paul is open seven days a week for dinner beginning at 5:30 p.m.
