Great location just off 5th, and a really warm and welcoming place. It has a busy bar scene, but the dining room upstairs is away from the noise and is really lovely and comfortable. The room is pretty loud and hard to hear, but I...More

Papillon is such a fun place to eat. Great menu, good food and two great bars, on the main floor and upstairs. Always good!

Not that many lunch options nearby after a visit to the Museum of Modern Art on a chilly day, so my wife and I decided to give Papillon, a bistro, a try, especially considering their special lunch options in the window. Well, upstairs was closed...More
