Papilles debuted this week at 127 E. Seventh St. between Avenue A and First Avenue.
Here's what Florence Fabricant at the Times had to say about it in a recap of openings around the city:
Andrea Calstier and Elena Oliver, a French couple and fledgling restaurateurs in their early 20s, have joined with a more experienced partner, Nicolas Thoni, to create an intimate spot with an open kitchen. Mr. Calstier’s menu is rooted in French-Mediterranean fare. The name of the restaurant translates to taste buds.
