Ooh La La! Bistro de Paris Gets a New Name!

Published November 29, 2012 by

Bistro de Paris will soon have a new name, Monsieur Paul. The restaurant has been closed since July 2012, and the new name has been spotted on the most recent Epcot guide maps. “Monsieur Paul” is in reference to Paul Bocuse, one of the three chefs who started the restaurant. Not one to steal anyone’s thunder…as of right now… Remy is only making appearances at Chefs de France. I think he and Chef Paul are friends however. Here is some photographic proof.

Chef Paul has been named Top Chef of the 20th Century by the Culinary Institute of America. He is also considered to be the first “celebrity chef,” because he put his name on his own restaurant way back in 1965. The newly re-named Bistro in Epcot (Monsieur Paul) is expected to re-open in early December 2012.

Before the Bistro closed, it was a little known fact that you can see Illuminations (Epcot’s fireworks) while dining there. The second floor view was said to be awesome – as long as you requested (and got) a window seat. If you’ve eaten there I hope you’ll share your experiences. Hopefully one day soon I will make it to Monsieur Paul. 

Until next time…Passez une bonne journée magique! (I think that means have a magical day.)
