BREAKING NEWS: Monsieur Paul to Reopen Soon! – Disney Dining

October 12, 2022
Bonjour! We have news that is simply très magnifique! After two very long years, Monsieur Paul will finally reopen at EPCOT! The France Pavilion’s signature restaurant has is one of the last restaurants in the World Showcase to reopen after the COVID closure, though the regular table service restaurant below it, Chefs de France, reopened just mere months after the rest of the Park did.

When Monsieur Paul reopens, next week (October 18, 2022), it will do so with a brand new menu! The restaurant, formerly à la carte, will feature a prixe fixe menu. From Disney, “The new prix fixe menu offers a gastronomic meal––one in which people devote themselves to the art of ‘eating and drinking well.’ Very popular with the French and deeply familiar to them, the gastronomic meal has developed over centuries, constantly evolving, and has been passed down from generation to generation. The meal entails rites which include the search for good seasonal and local products, references to a codified repertoire of recipes, culinary skills, the setting of a beautiful table, the succession of courses and the pairing of dishes with wine.” 
To put it another way, the new menu will be French to its very core and will be a complete culinary experience from beginning to end.
We enjoy this restaurant very much, and some of our best dining experiences involve Monsieur Paul.  One stand-out experience was when our waiter, Marc,  presented our small son’s fruit-flavored soda water to him exactly as he presented our wine. He also walked him through a wine tasting with his water and explained the French significance of savoring a beverage. He made our son feel extremely special and left us all happy enough to still remember it even though said son is not so small anymore. 
Some things to keep in mind before your visit:

Don’t let these things prevent you from booking a reservation, though. The restaurant was founded in 1982 by legendary French chef, Chef  Bocuse, named Chef of the Year in 1961 and Chef of the Century in 2011. His son now runs the restaurant.  We cannot recommend Monsieur Paul highly enough. From the atmosphere to the food to the expert-level service, this is a dining experience you’ll never forget!
