This restaurant stands out because of its bright blue exterior, but West Villagers also appreciate the good French food and understated class. While other neighborhood spots compete for trendy crowds, Papillon focuses on locals who are looking to avoid a scene. The interior is bright and inviting, and many patrons choose to sit at the bar and drink. The kitchen is becoming well known for its game dishes, including Vension and Rabbit.
