Crepes & Burgers

‘In America, you can find a hamburer place every block or so… Breton, where I come from, you’ll find a creperie every block,’ says Herve, chef/owner of Papillote.  The chef makes these large and luscious delicacies exactly as his mother makes them.  They are available every Sunday  for Papillote’s all-day breakfast, filled with your choice of sweet or  savory goodies including his own marvelous fig preserves.  These are a don’t miss!

Papillote Closed for Vacation

Chef Herve and partner Ann Marie are in France for a long anticipated vacation.  It’s the first time in three years that Savannah’s noted French chef has been to his home country.  We’re certain that he’s thoroughly enjoying reconnecting with family and friends!  Papillote will re-open on January 18.

Mushroom lovers alert!

If you love mushrooms and you enjoy mushroom soup, you need to try the Mushroom soup at Il Papillote is is by far the best mushroom soup I’ve ever had in decades of eating the dish.  Chef Herve has created a soup  like no other.  The texture and the flavor are intensely mushroom and only mushroom. No milk, cream or chicken broth. Purely pureed mushrooms, of several varieties I’d guess, including-shiitake, one of the portobello varieties, etc. Perhaps a hint of thyme and cumin. The result is the most intensely meaty, woodsy mushroom brew you’ll ever experience.

New Restaurant!

Gourmet-around-town, Ron Melander (also among the most thoughtful of real estate agents) tells us that the newly opened Noble Fare, in the spot formerly occupied by Jean Louis, is a definite winner!  Another friend tells us that it is actually French! (Since the lady in question has never been to France, we’re reserving our hopes, but will be checking this one out soon!
