Yes! They had a number of jackets hanging behind the hostess stand. We were on the Dream in May of 2011 and the Fantasy in March of 2012 and I remember seeing them. Maybe they don't have them anymore? I'll post on the cruise boards and see if anyone has more recent info!

But wait! There's more!!

I did ask about the significance / story behind the name change. Briefly, in the kitchen, Paul Bocuse = "Chef Paul," but outside the kitchen, as a sign of respect, he is called "Monsieur Paul."

It really is fairly simple - like "-san" in the Japanese culture (my analogy, not theirs). I don't think the French know how intimidated Americans are pronouncing (much less spelling) unfamiliar words that are not phonetic (even though we have plenty of our own). We'll get used to it. Someday.

You ask, I deliver = MENUS

Day one - I expect morphing, and tweaking, and spell / grammar check - but most of you are interested in the core elements - dishes, pricing, etc. Please ignore my handwritten comments, as they were not intended for "publication" and were the reason I did not post more quickly. Tomorrow, I will ask for "clean" menus and repost!

Dinner Menu Page #1




Dinner Menu Page #2




Dessert Menu




After Drink Menu





Let me know if any are "unreadable" (as opposed to being "easily readable")

Thanks for the menu! That is really helpful.

So, according to a fellow DIS'er who cruised the Fantasy in October, they offered both jackets and shoes to men dining at Remy and Palo!

Thank you for the 1st glimpse into MP's, I was glad to see the other photo of the lamb as the first did look entirely over cooked for my liking.

In the early views of the menu and including the one you featured, it states Ravioli of Escargot! The ones in your photo, which I enjoyed tremendously at F&W this year are not ravioli. Was it a menu change?

Your review make me look forward to eating at MP even more!

Did not really evaluate, but requested a copy for posting.

I'd glad a previous poster asked about the lamb, which prompted me to add the second photo.
The escargot in brioche is an amuse bouche. The Ravioli is an appetizer that I did not order (and have no picture).
Hope you get there soon!

I would love to have just the lamb, it looks heavenly! Do you know if you can order the rib eye or lamb without doing the Prix Fixe menu?

I don't know, but I will ask. I did inquire whether I could get a single cut of the ribeye as a solo diner on the Prix Fixe menu, and server said "no" - will ask your question tomorrow

Thank you so much. Your pics certainly make me want to go eat there.

Thank you so much for this! I was so afraid when the refurb was announced. I very much enjoy a formal (yes, even "stuffy") dining experience, and I was really worried they would sort of dumb it down a lot. This helps to assuage a lot of my concerns. One question though, please- I know the serving staff used to wear tuxedos. What's their attire now?

The service staff wears a white dress shirt, Windsor knot tie (male and female), blue apron (like you see on pictures of French waiters). Room and menu similar to BdP. You can wear non-tourist clothing if that suits your purposes, but nothing has really changed on what fellow tourists are likely to wear.
