Papilles menu 1/25/12 and a note to vegetarians.

We’ve had a couple of inquiries of what we do for vegetarians. Our answer is this: We always have vegetables that we can prepare for a vegetarian and make it taste wonderful, but we wouldn’t suggest this restaurant expressly for vegetarians.
Being a true French restaurant, we prepare most of our vegetables and grains for the day with meat stock and butter, but we can cook raw vegetables in oil for those that insist.
Now on to the menu…
