Chefs de France
With the lively atmosphere of an authentic brasserie
along the Rue de Seine, Epcot's celebrated Chefs de France restaurant
welcomes diners to a true French dining experience.
Gastronomic creations of its three famous owner-chefs, Paul
Bocuse, Gaston Lenotre and Roger Verge, are featured. Their gourmet
restaurants in Lyon, Paris, and Cote d' Azur are known around
the world as the epitome of French cooking.
Michel Cipolla, a veteran chef and hotelier who formerly managed
major hotels in Monte Carlo and Cannes, is the general manager
of the restaurant with Paul Bocuse's son, Jerome, as assistant.
He is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. Bruno
Vrignon, also a long-time associate of the three chef-owners
in France, is the executive chef. He trained under Paul Bocuse
in his original restaurant in Lyon.
While retaining its Belle Epoque exterior styling, Chefs de
France has quadrupled in size, incorporating the outdoor dining
area formerly known as Au Petite Cafe. French windows swing open
to let in the sounds of sidewalk musicians during most days.
Tables and banquettes are arranged for a better view of the
quay-side promenade and the popular nighttime "IllumiNations:
Reflections of Earth" spectacular on World Showcase Lagoon. The
dining area is surrounded on three sides by large windows giving
it a light and bright feeling.
A la carte.
