A short vacation, then a cornucopia of delights from Papillote!

Ann Marie and Chef Herve (owners of Papillote) closed up shop to spend 10 days in Key West. Their return brought an abundance of wonderful new specials.  A Salade Nicoise (tuna, poached egg, lettuce, tomato, potatoes, anchovies, olives, haricot vert, and green peppers), authentic down to the last haricot vert!  Downright scrumptious! Soft shell crabs were n the menu too, as well as the piece de resistance, Baked Brie Vol-au-Vent (Brie in a puff pastry shell, topped with an arugula, fennel, and sliced orange salad, with a honey and raspberry vinaigrette) !  My fervent hope is that this sublime dish goes on the regular menu soon and forever.
