Epcot restaurats for picky eaters?

So I'm a VERY picky eater and thus tend to avoid a lot of places because I'm just such a baby sometimes about new foods/foods that aren't...mainstream? I dunno, but my gf really wants to eat in Epcot but I want to be able to eat xD I like standard American fare, I LOVE love love seafood, ummm...I can't think of many off the top of my head xD

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

The first suggestion that comes to me is Coral Reef. - They have some great seafood dishes as well as a fantastic steak.
I love Via Napoli. Excellent pizza (some typical, some really creative). And they have my favorite seafood dish. Linguini Frutti di Mare..depending on how adventurous you are when it comes to seafood..it is to die for.

Teppan Edo might be fun...pretty standard offerings..steak, shrimp, chicken and scallops..

With a picky eater, I think buffets are your friend because with so many choices you stand a better chance of finding things you like rather than picking a single menu item and discovering too late that you hate it.

My (adult) DD is quite picky and did very well at the Biergarten in Germany. Another idea, if your GF will compromise just a little, is to stroll out Epcot's 'side entrance' - the International Gateway - to the Beach Club resort. While at Coral Reef you WATCH the fishies, at BC's Cape May you EAT the fishies. They serve a nightly buffet that is heavy on the seafood offerings and always includes all-you-can-eat crab legs. No sauces, just a big vat of steaming drawn butter next to it if you want to get some to dunk your crab in.

Why not take a good look at the menus of the restaurants in Epcot. You will find them all at allears.net. I'm sure you will find a lot of places that can satisfy both of you. Keep in mind that all of the restaurants have "Americanized" their menus to quite an extent- generally meaning that they are much blander than what you would find in the host country's restaurants.

Coral Reef is an excellent suggestion...but just a short walk down International Gateway way will yield Cape May(seafood buffet) and Flying Fish...Lu's it is a lovely walk

At any WDW restaurant, you should be able to order any entree "plain" without sauces or seasonings.

I do it all the time! Rose and Crown, Coral Reef, Lecellier, Chefs, Via Napoli is already plain enough for me. No chunks in sauce etc! I am not a huge fan of buffets, the sauces are already on the food. You can get enough to eat but I just feel like the price is way too much for eaters like 'us'. LOL. At the Boardwalk, YC and BC. I like Yachtsmen, Capts Grille, and Big River.

If there's one thing I've learned on the DIS, it's that "standard American fare" can mean many different things to different people. I'd advise checking out the menus.
