Le Grand Bistrot is a dining establishment in Twilight Town, founded by Scrooge McDuck and run by Little Chef.

Story[edit]

Kingdom Hearts III[edit]

During his travels, Scrooge encounters Little Chef after enjoying one of his dishes. As Little Chef wants to expand his culinary horizons, Scrooge takes the little rat's desire as an opportunity and funds Le Grand Bistrot in Twilight Town to help Little Chef fulfill his dream.

Sora, Donald, and Goofy encounter Little Chef in the woods, where he is pursued by a group of Heartless and has left a group of fruits on the ground. After the trio save him, they prepare to leave, but Little Chef takes control of Sora and uses him to collect his fruits. Sora ultimately collects the fruits on his own, but is unable to understand Little Chef's intent to cook with them, and the trio bid Little Chef farewell.

After a visit to the Old Mansion, Sora and company pass by Le Grand Bistrot, where they encounter Scrooge. Scrooge offers the trio a tarte aux fruits that Little Chef made as a token of gratitude for them rescuing him from the Heartless, and introduces Little Chef as the chef of the bistrot. As Little Chef wants to cook more culinary delights for Sora and company, Scrooge has the trio collect ingredients for Little Chef. As the trio collect ingredients on their quest, they often visit the restaurant, with Sora and Little Chef cooking meals and raising the restaurant to five stars.

During their travels, Sora and company are contacted by Chip and Dale, who inform them that Merlin is waiting for them to have a cup of tea. Realizing that Merlin is waiting for them at Le Grand Bistrot, the trio set forth to Twilight Town, where they encounter Merlin. At the restaurant, Merlin explains that Sora is missing on the cover of the Old Book, the home of the 100 Acre Wood, and has Sora enter the book to reconnect with his friends. Sora learns that his fall to darkness by Xehanort had caused his removal from the cover and Pooh's heart, and realizes that his connections are becoming weaker.

Cooking Mini-games[edit]

Dishes that can be cooked are separated into two menus: the Classic Menu and the Special Menu. The Special Menu has generally higher-difficulty mini-games, and requires rare ingredients, such as those from the Flantastic Seven.

Once a dish has been selected, preparing it requires playing one of three mini-games:

  • Chop the Ingredients: Sora holds an ingredient on a cutting board, and chops it into thin slices with a knife. Tilt Left Stick down repeatedly to chop ingredients, and tilt the Right Stick down to grab another ingredient once the current one has been completed.
  • Crack the Egg: Sora gently pulls apart the two halves of egg over a bowl. Gently move Left Stick and Right Stick apart, and press L1 and R1 simultaneously to drop the egg into the bowl.
  • Flambé the Food: Sora will hold a bottle of oil and a frying pan. Rotate Left Stick to add oil to the pan, and tilt Right Stick down at the correct time to activate the stove's fire.
  • Grind the Pepper: Sora will toss a pepper shaker between his hands. Alternate between tilting Left Stick and Right Stick down according to which hand holds the shaker.

The screen will darken as the mini-game progresses, and red ribbons and sparks of "imagination" will steadily form around Sora. These sparks indicate the correct timing of the final cooking action (the fire input for the flambé, the L1 and R1 input for the egg, etc).

When the mini-game is complete, one of three rankings is given. In all three cases, the ingredients used for the food are lost.

  • Excellent - The food is prepared perfectly, and the rewarded dish will have a star ranking of 3.
  • Good - The food is prepared moderately well, and the rewarded dish will have a star ranking of 2.
  • Failure - The food is ruined, and no dish is rewarded. This can display as "Too Slow", "Too Fast", "Too Gentle", "Too Hard", "Too Little", or "Too Much".

Successfully preparing a dish may also reward a Filet Mignon ingredient at random.

Equipping the Chef Extraordinaire ability on Sora will make it easier to obtain "Excellent" ratings when preparing dishes.

Bistrot Star Ranking[edit]

The Bistrot will have a star ranking from 0 to 5, depending on the amount of unique dishes that have been cooked with an "Excellent" ranking. Only dishes on the Classic Menu will count toward the Bistrot's stars - the dishes on the Special Menu do not count.

Star Rank "Excellent" Dishes Reward
0 stars 0 -
1 star 4 Gourmand's Ring
2 stars 7 -
3 stars 10 Elixir
4 stars 14 -
5 stars 20 Grand Chef Keyblade

Strategy[edit]

  • Chop the Ingredients: Left Stick can be used rapidly, and there is no penalty for chopping while Sora does not hold an ingredient (aside from simply wasting time). Therefore, tilt Left Stick as rapidly as possible, and tap the Right Stick just when the icon on the right lights up.
  • Crack the Egg: Hold down L1 for the entire mini-game. Pull Left Stick and Right Stick apart slowly, and when the red sparks appear, hold the sticks where they are and press R1 gently. Do not move the sticks any farther at that point, or the mini-game will fail. A common mistake is pulling the sticks too far - pressing L1 and R1 suddenly with a lot of force can also cause the sticks to move accidentally. Holding L1 in advance mitigates this possibility.
  • Flambé the Food: Rotate Left Stick at a moderate speed - not too fast, not too slow. The prompt for Right Stick will appear early, so continue to pour until the red sparks appear, and then tilt Right Stick.
  • Grind the Pepper: Tilt down Left Stick or Right Stick when the circle approaches the appropriate icon. The icons happen to be circular, so aim for their outer edge.

To make this easier, Sora can equip the Chef Extraordinaire ability, which is available on two Gourmand's Rings and the Grand Chef Keyblade. The ability's effect will stack if he equips multiple instances of it.

  • One Gourmand's Ring is obtained after earning an "excellent" rating on 4 unique dishes.
  • One Gourmand's Ring is obtained by redeeming Prize Postcards from the Moogle Shop.
  • The Grand Chef Keyblade is obtained by earning an "excellent" rating on the 20 Classic Menu dishes. Note that the Special Menu dishes are not required to obtain this, so it can be earned before attempting the Special Menu entirely.

Also note that the Bistrot will trigger an auto-save immediately upon finishing a mini-game. If the game is exited to the title screen and re-entered with the "continue" option, then this auto-save will be used, meaning the ingredients will still be lost. If a particular mini-game is difficult to clear, manually save the game outside of the bistrot and then attempt the dish. If it fails, then exit to the title screen select "load game" instead of "continue" to load the save before the dish was attempted.
