DCL's Disney Dream will feature restaurant Remy with menu by dream team of international chefs

At a dinner at New York City's Le Bernadin restaurant that was prepared by chefs Scott Hunnel (Victoria & Albert's) and Arnaud Lallement (l'Assiette Champenoise, Reims, France), Disney Cruise Lines announced that the upcoming ship Disney Dream will feature a fine-dining restaurant called Remy, with a menu designed by the two chefs.

I do not understand why Remy the rat scares people in the resturants? We got Mickey and Minnie Mouse bugging you at every other place while you are trying to eat...the nerve :)

Mickey and Minnie look nothing like mice?

Robert: You could also add that Mickey and Minnie are decades-old icons, while Remy is a character from a single recent movie, so there's a difference in familiarity.

Anyone who's seen "Ratatouille" will associate Remy with gourmet dining, but to anyone who hasn't seen the movie, he's just a rat -- and a fairly realistic-looking one, compared to other cartoon rodents.

I really don't care who they name the restaurant after -- if it's in the least bit comparable to the meal I enjoyed at Palo aboard the Wonder, I'll be there!

The rat adds character. French restaurants, particularly bistros, are all about unfitting names, especially those that involve animals. We have two in town: one is called, "Chez Piggy," and the other is, "Chien Noir." When you think about it, those are pretty unappealing names, but both serve excellent food.
