Maine lobster with sautÃ©ed mushrooms, poached egg, and creamy black-truffle bouillon; lamb tenderloin; roasted duck breast.
Monsieur Paul may be a bit formal and high-priced for many park guests, but if you can get past the sticker shock, this is the spot for a quiet dinner and conversation. Young chef Francesco Santin, who worked at Bocuse’s restaurant in Lyon, France, wows diners with classic French tastes, including escargot, roasted duck breast with apple fondant, grilled beef tenderloin with mushroom crust and bordelaise sauce, and flourless chocolate cake with praline crunch. There’s also a three-course fixed-price menu ($89 per person) that doesn’t include anything on the regular menu, along with a solid wine list. A rather grownup kids’ menu includes roasted chicken breast and filet mignon.
Setting and Atmosphere
Light and modern, Monsieur Paul is tucked away upstairs at the France Pavilion. Access lies up a stairway (there’s also an elevator) lined with photos of legendary French chef Paul Bocuse. His son, Jerôme, runs the restaurants started In 1982 in Epcot by his father and two other famous French chefs, Gaston Lenôtre and Roger Vergé. Despite Monsieur Paul’s relaxed ambience, this is definitely upscale cuisine, with sublime sauces and classic French preparations. Open only for dinner; request a table at the windows to watch the world go by on World Showcase Lagoon. Seats just 120.
Chef Bocuse’s black-truffle soup, available only on the fixed-price menu; red snapper in potato “scales”; pot-au-feu of scallops.
