Bistro de Paris - Epcot Center, Orlando, FL - 5/25/11

In the Paris portion of Epcot, there are two restaurants - Bistro de Paris is the upper level, white table cloth restaurant, a bit more formal, a bit more high end, a bit more "French restaurant" - I would go as far as to say "shockingly French."


The amuse bouche featured fish....sadly, that's all I can remember.


Escargot - crazy sized portion, I'd say about 12 snails in a thicky, creamy sauce. Delicious, but huge.


Venison medallions roasted, caramelized apple with cranberries, celery purée and patty pan squash, Grand Veneur sauce


Pork tenderlon stuffed with mushrooms, truffles pasta gratin, morel sauce


There you go. A solid meal by any standards - this is straight up, old school French though the portions suggest a German influence. The food and wine list make no apologies - this is a solid, French restaurant on par with what you should expect in any major metropolitan area. Not a cheap dinner, but a well crafted one, and certainly a value for the quality. Service was top notch, friendly, and not at all stuffy.

If Victoria and Albert's is out of your price range and you need a special occasion meal - hit this place up.
