June 3, 1984 – The Restaurant Bistro de Paris Opens in Epcot’s France Pavilion
“Gourmet restaurant located at the 2nd floor”
On June 3, 1984, the restaurant Bistro de Paris opened in Epcot’s World Showcase, in the France Pavilion. The restaurant was created due to the success and demand for reservations for Les Chefs de France, and was located in the upstairs area of the restaurant. Like Les Chefs, Bistro de Paris specialized in gourmet French cuisine, featuring favorites such as filet mignon, duck breast, and crème brulee. The restaurant was closed on July 31, 2012; it was renovated and reopened in December, now named Monsieur Paul after famous French chef Paul Bocuse.
