All I can say is wow. What a great report. The food looks fantastic. There are only 2 restaurants at WDW that we have not dined at Monsieur Paul & The Wave. I guarantee after reading your review we will be dining at Monsieur Paul on our next trip.

Brenda, I'll be back to read later, but wanted to wish you, Em, Michael and the rest of your family a Happy Halloween.

Day 6: Wednesday, August 21, 2013 - Club Level Evening Appetizers

Inserting a bonus section here that wasn’t included in my live dining review. We partook of some evening appetizers since we had an 8 hour gap between meals. (And you don't know that I snuck in a little snack from DHS earlier but that's not been revealed yet...)
Was your little snack a carrot cake cookie? I seem to remember something about you liking them.

There were a selection of wines; a chardonnay, zinfandel, pinot noir, and merlot.

I stuck with the crudités and dip since I didn’t want to spoil my appetite for dinner while Em sampled a few of the hot and cold items.

Honestly, no idea!
Could this have been gazpacho?

[B][COLOR="Blue"][SIZE="4"]About this time Philippe came over to welcome us and say hi. He remembered me from February (apparently I have a reputation now!) and recalled that we “met” (or whatever the French word for argued is) at Chefs de France, not here at Monsieur Paul. Exactly. We chatted briefly and then Nicolaus showed up with some champagne and club soda cocktail that was compliments of Philippe. Still trying to make me feel better with champagne I see!! He said the name of the drink probably 3 times and I still can’t recall what it was. However, it was pretty tasty. Here's a short video of me introducing the cocktail... wish I knew what this was called.
That was really nice of him to try and make up for his behavior last February. The food there looks fantastic. I love Em's fish dish.

Happy Halloween!! I think the pumpkin bread is offered year around at Starbucks. I know I had it least once here during the summer.

Ok, add this restaurant to my wish list. For the bread alone!! Your entree looked amazing too. I'm also a huge nerd for design & those menus look so cool! I love the font they used for the front. Classy but not stuffy. I think I'm going to have Rich read this entry to boost my TiW argument. Thanks for that! I'm so glad you guys had a good time & got to experience this place. Thanks for sharing with us! And of course, that you are getting champagne from Phillippe during this trip too!

That looks like a wonderful meal (Monsieur Paul). I will definitely talk to my hubby about trying to go there.

Ok, I'm slapping myself right now for not resisting the urge to read your Monsieur Paul review. Now of course I want to dine there in December. I had that filet when I was there (it was BdP then) and loved it. And that salad that you guys had looks like it's right up my alley. So is there anyway to fit it into our schedule? How many meals do you think we could squeeze into one day before we slip into a permanent food coma?

I'm enjoying both your trip reprot & dining report. Imagine my surprise, when you post the picture of the line out the door at the 50's Prime Time Cafe & I'm in the photo. I thought to myself "I have that bag" then "wait a minute! that is me!!!" I'm in the orange tank with the orchid colored bag. It truly is a small world.

I'm finally caught up!

Ugh… you are going to make me end up at 50's… I just KNOW it. That just looks amazing and a place I think we will all love. I've been thinking if I can get FP+ for TSM and TofT, then I may not NEED the early morning ressie at H&V, although it was fun! Hmm….

Monsieur Paul's looks lovely as well! I loved Chefs… so I'm sure I'd enjoy MP!

And the club level… sigh… one day!

Again thanks for the club level food report, I am very much looking forward to our first and probably only club level stay.

Your meal at Monsieur Paul's looked amazing, unless we decide to put our ds into the kids club it won't make our list this time though unfortunately.

The potato wrapped snapper at Flying Fish Cafe is delicious but not done so beautifully as Em's snapper from Monsieur Paul's. Here is a photo of my plate from 2010:

Food with a side of sarcasm is my favorite! Because that's like eating with me everyday.

Kids chicken meals! Perfect. I need to think of that more often. I just can't eat as much as I used to after losing weight, so I try to order smaller meals as often as I can.

Haha. Your fudge comment had me thinking Pirates of the Caribbean. "Why is the fudge always gone?"

Okay, so I had to go back and read your Brown Derby thing. All I can say is, really?! Unreal. I don't even have words, and I always have words!

Listen, if they foist snails upon you without you knowing, you can pass them my way. It's my favorite thing there. When it was the Bistro, but to me it's just been a name change.

I don't see it on the menu, but when Jason and I ate there about two years ago, they had a Grand Marnier soufflé that was amazing for dessert! To die for.

Glad that you and Philippe can pretty much get along. For the moment.
