Les Papilles is a bistro combined with a retail wine store. The name means “sense of pleasurable taste” or “taste buds”, only it means more than that. The policy they are using regarding wine pricing, is a quite common and successful one that we see used more and more these days; sell the bottle at the takeaway price and add a small markup to consume it on the premises. The kitchen is serving good straightforward dishes that are visually appealing yet not frou-frou in the least.
