Monsieur Paul - formerly known as Bistro de Paris

Just happened to have a reservation for tonight - opening night. I was not aware it was going to be opening night when I booked the reservation (Nov 19th, according to my email confirmation for BdP), but they did let us know when we checked in. Since I had no place I needed to be, I was totally fluid with however the meal was going to unfold. Besides, after years of delivering IT projects (where the stakes are usually VERY high for a successful launch, given the nature of these systems), it was kind of interesting (entertaining) to watch the last minute finessing of someone else's project - pulling the flowers out of the elevator and putting them on the stands, Philippe navigating the first two customers on electronic carts into the elevator, Jerome handing out electronic communication devices, etc. It was fun to be part of the start of something, for which I had no responsibility whatsoever!!


For those who may not have already seen them, these threads may provide some context for the evolution of my experiences with this restaurant....

In other words, I was a pretty big fan of BdP, and feared the worst when I heard that DDP was coming (which, I am sure, is a profitable business proposition for Disney, but generally has not had a positive impact on menu variety).

Be not afraid - it was great.
