Monsieur Paul

Monsieur Paul Review

A mere staircase away from Epcot's busy World Showcase, Monsieur Paul is a subdued and sophisticated fine dinery. It's owned by Chef Jerome Bocuse and named for his world-famous father, the Culiniary Institute of America's Chef of the Century, Paul Bocuse. The restaurant is expensive and sophisticated—in odd juxtaposition to the rumpled clothing and sneakers of most diners—and a delightful diversion from the theme park's bustle. The menu is overtly French while incorporating the best of America. For example, the signature fish dish, which has "scales" of potato, braised fennel, and rosemary sauce, is made with Florida red snapper instead of the original's red mullet. Escargot is presented in large raviolis and a parsley cream. The namesake salad tops curly greens with dry-aged ham, braised leeks, a Parmesan crisp, and celery cream, and the seared scallops and roasted duck breast are especially interesting entrées. Although the service isn't as polished as the menu, it is heartening to hear the waitstaff converse in French.
