As reported on the Disney Parks Blog – exciting things are happening over at the France pavilion eateries! By early December Bistro de Paris at EPCOT will have a whole new look and name. Also in December a new bakery will be open! Les Chefs de France remains open as well as the current Boulangerie Patisserie shop.
According to Jerome Bocuse, president and owner of the company that runs all three of the France pavilion eateries talks about the biggest changes coming to the upstairs restaurant ” It’s all new – new name, new dining room, new costumes for the servers, new menu. We’re still aiming for haute cuisine, but with a less formal atmosphere. Guests are in the park with their families, so we want to create an elegant, nice ambience, but not stuffy. Our guests want to experience true French cuisine.”
Bocuse also says the servers will be in less formal attire and the room colors will be brightened with the theme of the restaurant being their family history (they have been in the culinary business for two centuries!).
The new bakery – currently under construction at the back of the pavilion by the theater exit – will feature a bread oven and will do all of the baking for all three restaurants. The current menu will be expanded to include both salads and sandwiches as well as seating inside for about 90 guests. The old pastry shop will be changed into their new Glacier ice cream parlor!
