Papillote, the definition: cooking en Papillote is to cook in parchment paper (or a pouch), where the contents are steam cooked. Papillote is also a traditional French Christmas candy wrapped in shiny gold or metallic paper tied at both ends and often having some sort of fortune-like note inside.
The concept of Papillote is to make fresh, delicious food available to everyone and to be eaten anywhere. The shop is simple, as is the food – but everything is made from scratch on the premises. Our menu is posted and varies depending on what is in season, what people are asking for, and what Chef is in the mood to prepare. But don’t let the menu make your final decision. There are always additional items in the shop, whether sweet or savory. Don’t expect fancy plates or silverware – just paper and plastic here. Whether you eat in or take out, we’ll serve you with a smile and most likely a sample or two.
