Located in New York City’s storied East Village, Papilles is a purveyor of fine French dining helmed by 24-year-old Chef Andrea Calstier.
Classically trained in France and formerly of multiple Michelin-starred restaurants, Chef Calstier has created an innovative menu using ingredients and inspirations from his travels around the world which he calls “cuisine vagabonde.”
Meaning “taste buds”, Papilles is a collaboration between Andrea Calstier, his wife Elena Oliver, and fellow French expat and close friend, Nicolas Thoni.
Nicolas is a French-Italian mixologist and restaurant manager who grew up in Lyon, the capital of food. Along with a thoughtful wine list, Nicolas creates specialty cocktails using fresh herbs, spices, and flowers to complement the seasonal ingredients of the menu.
