On Labor Day weekend, I had the opportunity to try out the recently-refreshed Monsieur Paul in the France Pavilion at EPCOT. Joining me were @AmyLPlant, @JonDPlant, and my lovely girlfriend @misslissa_sue. We were all blown away by the beautiful settings, impeccable service, and wonderful food. Check the gallery below for a sampling of what we enjoyed that Sunday.

Entering the lobby, you’re immediately taken away from the hustle and bustle of the plebian world outside…
Beautiful, minimal light fixture.
Up the world’s slowest elevator for this bionic-ankled blogger.
Nearing the top of the elevator, you can see Monsieur Paul’s colors peeking through.
Jon decides to take a picture of me taking a picture of him as the elevator comes to a halt.

Pink and green are two colors I’d never really thought of together. They work… they work well.
Specials and main menu.
Cheese puffs arrive first… they were DELICIOUS.
The wine menu.. it’s quite expansive.
I love the colors here.
More bread service – four types of bread are on offer. Ask for as many or as few as you’d like.
