Living in Chicago I have an embarrassing richness of world-class restaurants at which to dine. And anyone who has seen me in person can attest that I apparently take frequent advantage of this easy access!
On a recent trip to Disney World I was surprised to discover a restaurant that is easily among the best of those I have been to in my entire life. It’s Monsieur Paul, located in “France” at Epcot. It’s regarded as one of the park’s fine dining options, but I was skeptical after our experience at the California Grill in the Contemporary Hotel. But this time, I was not at all disappointed.
Everything — from the food it to the service — was great. However, I should add that the price was also as high as some of the finest restaurants I’ve been to. It would be easy to drop $200 a person. But I think you can get out of there for closer to $125 if you are judicious about your cocktails and wine.
I had one if the best pork chops of my life, a very nice French martini, and part of a scrumptious dessert. All of it was delicious, and this coming from someone who doesn't normally like French cuisine.
The service was also very good. (Thank you, J.P.)
The atmosphere is a little frantic compared to other fine restaurants, but compared to other Epcot venues it’s downright peaceful.
Of all the places I’ve dined at Disney, Monsieur Paul is the only one I’m eager to visit again.
