Foodie Friday: Le Chefs de France

Le Chefs de France is located in the France area of the World Showcase at Epcot. We were all a little apprehensive about it because none of us had ever tried French food before. We were pleasantly surprised! The atmosphere was fancy French dining but casual enough for park attire. We had a lunch time reservation and seated at a table near the center of the left side. We were near a window and could see the streets of France. We saw Belle and the Beast come out to had to their greeting spots. Our waiter took our drink orders and brought us French bread and butter.
Zachary decided to try a Prix Fixe, a 3 course meal. His appetizer was Lobster Bisque, he said it was okay, but a little fishy tasting. Paul ate most of it! He also had a French ham and cheese sandwich that he described as the best he had ever eaten.
I had the Demi Poulet Fermier roti Pommes ris soles et broccoli- basically a half of a roasted chicken with rissole potatoes and broccoli. Man, this was delicious. I even ate the broccoli and I don't like broccoli! The chicken was fall off the bone tender and the potatoes were perfectly seasoned. I would definitely order this dish again.
Erin had the child's cheeseburger and fries. Clay also had a burger. It's called the Steak Hache' Angus, champignons et Bearnaise ou frites, or a 1/2 lb Angus burger with confit onions, mushroom duxelle, tomatoes and Bearnaiseon and fries. The fries come in a cute little newspaper cone. Clay is our big burger lover and this one is at the top of his list of burgers to try again.
Paul had the Plat de Cafe de boeuf au cabernet aree pates, simply, beef short ribs braised in cabernet with pasta, pearl onions and mushrooms. He said that this was one for the best dishes he had ever had at a Disney table service restaurant. He couldn't believe how good it was and he cleaned his plate!
In between our entree's and dessert we were surprised with a visit from sweet Remy! He comes out on a wheeled cart being pushed by a waiter. Remy himself does not speak but responds with motions as the waiter jokes and interacts with diners. Kids and adults alike loved watching him move around from table to table. Cutest rat I have ever seen!
Now, on to dessert. Zachary's choice to go with his 3 course meal was the Creme Brulee. None of us had ever had it and were excited to try it, however, we didn't care alot for it. Paul had Crepe a la pomme et cannelle, glace vanille, caramel jus de pimies- crepes filled with cinnamon, apple, vanilla ice cream and covered in a apple caramel sauce. I did not like it, but Paul and Erin did.
Erin had kiwi sorbet with a candle in it for her birthday. Clay and I had profiteroles au chocolate. These were puff choux with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce. We loved them! They were great little flaky puff pastries with vanilla ice cream and dark chocolate sauce. AMAZING! The service at Le Chefs de France was fast and fun. The waiter was vary attentative to all of our needs and we hope to visit again on our next trip!
