Who’s cooking for Thanksgiving?

We’ve found two more Savannah restaurants offering package deals for Thanksgiving Dinner.  The Blue Turtle will put together a Thanksgiving Dinner that will feed 12 people for only $175.  They even have the option of buying items a la carte.  Wild Wing Cafe will offer complete dinners as well, and will be serving up fried turkeys this year. 

If you know of another Savannah restaurant offering up Thanksgiving Dinner, leave us a comment!  We’ll be posting all sorts of Turkey Day Tidbits, so if you don’t want to miss a post, subscribe to our blog.

Papillote triumphs again!

Everything that comes out of Papillote is excellent. But the latest arrival on the ever-changing “specials” menu is truly spectacular. Braised rabbit leg, stuffed with mushrooms, mustard and dried plums and served with crispy polenta and a luscious asparagus side dish is, I think, the most uniquely delectable dish I’ve yet had from this small French take-out restaurant. The rabbit is succulent and tender and the stuffing as savory as anything I’ve ever eaten. The polenta is the best I’ve had in years.  Chef Hervé Didailler has created a world class winner here. Don’t miss this one!

Joyeux Anniversaire, Papillote!

Today, Papillote celebrates its first birthday, having opened February 27, 2009.  Along with so many others, we rejoice that this delightful French take-out restaurant not only survived, but thrived, during that most perilous first year!   Best wishes, Chef Herve and Ann Marie, for many years to come!

Papillote…French Goodness!

We tried it and we loved it! The first genuine French meal we’ve ever had in Savannah! It’s all take-out, but it’s as truly French as one could imagine. For this first foray into this little spot,  we got their Tartine, an open-faced sandwich on brioche style bread, this one with roquefort, pears and  walnuts, served open faced served with an array of spring greens with a ginger vinaigrette. This sandwich, tart and sweet, crisp and creamy, simply could not be improved upon! We also had a Bouchee a la Reine filled with hearty chunks of  chicken, mushrooms, and carmelized onions, in a beautifully creamy sauce,  all encased in a puff pastry wrap. Topping the whole meal off was a Gateau Breton, a crumbly, buttery cake from the chef’s own region, Brittany. Plus we sampled the Gilded Brownie, a fudge chocolate concoction topped with an edible 23K gold leaf. Can’t beat that. Hours have already been extended to go from 10:30 am to 7:30 pm.  Wine is coming soon.  Call 232-1881 if you  wish to order in advance.

Viva La France! Papillote is Open

It’s been months now since we first heard that a French take-out restaurant, Papillote, was going to open n West Broughton St.  And we’ve been cruising by the address at 218 W. Broughton off and on ever since. Finally,  they are open! I haven’t been there yet, but spoke briefly with Chef and co-owner, Herve Didailler,  who comes from Brittany,  in the northeast area of France, an area especially noted for its fine shell fish and superb pastries! For those of us longing for traditional French food, this sounds like THE place! The menu changes every day,  he said,  according to what’s in season and  “what I feel like cooking,”  but it is all traditional French cuisine. The day of our conversation he had,  among other things, a Bouchee with chicken, mushrooms and caramelized onions, a quiche with salmon and asparagus, a couple of tartines, and a mouth-watering array of tarts and other pastries. We’ll be there to check it out one day this week, and will report back!
