Bistro de Paris, the upstairs restaurant in the France Pavilion at Epcot, is getting a whole new look plus a new name by early December and by mid-December, a new bakery will also be open.The restaurant will be completely new with a new name, dining room and menu. It will still offer true French cuisine but with a less formal atmosphere. Chefs de France, the downstairs restaurant will remain the same.

The bakery will have a bread oven and do baking for all three restaurants in a show bakery. The menu will include all of the current bakery items along with an expanded menu featuring salads and sandwiches. There will also be about 90 seats vs. the small indoor/outdoor seating area of the current bakery. The former bakery area become a new Glacier ice cream parlor.
