Papilles means “tastebuds” in French. We are a casual bistro inspired by the bistronomique movement in Paris. We strive to serve elegant, sophisticated food in a fun, relaxed setting.
We offer a seasonal, ever-changing menu featuring produce from local farmers.
Our concise wine selection gravitates towards natural wines from France and other Old World countries. We also have a small selection of great European and domestic beers.
Chef Jordan Rosas
Jordan is a very complex and creative individual. He loves urban foraging and riding his Ducati.
Santos Uy is an Angeleno born and bred, growing up in La Canada, attending high school at Loyola (Go Cubs!), and now opening local restaurants focused on great food and wine. A consummate oenophile, Uy is constantly reading about and sampling new wines as he carefully selects those that make it into his restaurants’ offerings. He not only enjoys drinking and sharing wine, but loves encouraging people to push the boundaries of their palate.
Uy started his career in the wine industry as the first employee at Silver Lake Wine, where his job title was “factotum.” He later acquired a second job at AOC as a part time floor sommelier. Uy has opened a number of concepts including Bacaro LA by USC, Rice Bar and Mignon in DTLA, Cento Pasta Bar pop-up, and Lost at Sea in Pasadena. He retains ownership and involvement in Mignon and Lost at Sea.
