Three of us dined at Papillon the other night. The restaurant is located in the "Village" complex which is across the boulevard from the Radisson.
We took a seat outside (against my rules normally but okay) and proceeded to review the menu. Mrs. 44 likes escargot and she ordered it straight away along with a glass of Pinot Grigiot. Cousin of 44 had a merlot while I chomped a most fantastic salad, sans booze.
Entrees came next: salmon for Cousin of 44, duck for Mrs. 44, and a filet for 44 himself. All very good. Portions are reasonable as opposed to gigantic like too many places these days.
Service was very good and knowledgeable, worth the 15% plus a little tip. Atmosphere is also quaint with one exception: the tv monitor playing the movie Papillon has to be removed, very distracting. Prices are at the upper limit of my budget, sky high compared to my local joints. But this was a special night out and it turned out to be worth the investment.
