Bistro de Paris to reopen in December with new decor and new menu
Aug 13, 2012 | 11:09am EDT
Bistro de Paris
in Epcot's France Pavilion is currently closed for a three month refurbishment. The restaurant is set to reopen on December 1 2012 with all new decor and a brand new menu.
official Disney Parks Blog
today released an interview with Jermoe Bocuse, owner of the three France Pavilion restaurants, talking about the upcoming changes.
"What’s the biggest change guests will see in the new upstairs restaurant?
Jerome Bocuse: 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.
Tell us a little about the new décor.
JB: Servers will be in less formal attire – no more tuxedoes – and the room colors will be fresh and bright. The theme is our family history, as we’ve been in the culinary business for two centuries. We have a long tradition of French chefs in the Bocuse family.
JB: We want to offer a taste of the true cuisine of France – classical, but with an approachable, affordable twist. We brought a chef over about a year ago from a Michelin 3-Star restaurant in France, so he’s ready to go.
Bistro de Paris has lots of fans, why change the restaurant now?
JB: We’ve never changed the restaurant since it opened more than 25 years ago, and it’s time for a new look and new theming based on our family’s history.
How about the Chefs de France downstairs, any changes?
JB: It is a classic brasserie, and will stay the same. "
