Disney never disappoints when it comes to food, particularly in Epcot, so Walt Disney World’s upcoming French restaurant is eagerly awaited by many Disney Guests and foodies! The name of the restaurant is La Crêperie de Paris, and it will be “a traditional crêperie…inspired by the Brittany region of France”. This restaurant is focusing on galettes and dessert crêpes, as well as authentic hard ciders from the French region, and we’ve got a preview of the menu right here!
Disney has released details about the cooking techniques for the galettes and crepes, confirming that they will be very thin in keeping with traditional styles. High temperatures will keep the outermost textures crispy, allowing for a strong contrast with the softer (and sometimes sweeter) fillings. La Crêperie de Paris will also be offering gluten-friendly galettes comprised of French buckwheat. The anticipated highlights from the menu are the Classique–a ham, eggs, and Swiss cheese-filled galette that can suit any time of day–and the Ratatouille, which is a wonderful vegetarian option consisting of tomato, zucchini, and eggplant filling.
Crêpes are typically sweeter than galettes, but they are also very very thin and crunchy with contrasting fillings. Disney is particularly proud of the Gourmande, which will contain house-made hazelnut chocolate spread, and the Pomme, which is a caramelized-apple-and-caramel beurre salé-filled dessert that sounds especially delightful. Ice cream will also be offered to complement the crêpes!
La Crêperie de Paris’s hard ciders are designed to accompany the galettes and sweet crêpes flawlessly, and with Disney’s track record, we’re sure that they will. These ciders will involve a variety of flavors, be imported directly from France, and be comprised of Brittany apples!
Disney is recommending the restaurant’s daily prix fixe menu for anyone who wants a casual perusing of all of the offerings. This menu includes a soup or salad, one galette, one crêpe, and a glass of hard cider, soda, or juice. There are plenty of other offerings besides the aforementioned Classique, Ratatouille, Gourmande, and Pomme, so you won’t go hungry!
The extensive galette options include the Poulet (chicken, bechamel cheese sauce, and mushrooms), the Chèvre (goat cheese, spinach, and walnuts), the Saumon (smoked salmon (hence the name!), crème fraiche, chives, and a bit of lemon), and the Savoyarde (a crispy galette filled with Raclette cheese, onions, and imported Bayonne ham.)
For those with a love of sweetness, the Banane (featuring banana and the caramel beurre salé from the Pomme), the intriguing Melba (containing peach, red berries sauce, and almonds), or the Poire (filled with pear, chocolate ganache, and topped with whipped cream) are sure to provide decadent variety!
For quick-service, there will also be a walk-up window at the restaurant that will serve a smaller menu of the galettes, crêpes, and ciders or wines.
Even though this menu will no doubt result in some long lines upon opening day (October 1st), reservations are not required to visit this restaurant, but that may change now that everyone has seen a teaser for this delicious menu! Are you excited to try these new French cuisines?
