Fodor's Expert Review Papillon

$$$$ Palm Beach and Noord French

Despite being inspired by Henri Charrière's escape from Devil's Island, the food here couldn't be more removed from bread and water. The owners use the famous autobiography and film as a metaphor for a culinary journey to freedom—they transform classic French cuisine with Caribbean flair. There are whimsical prison touches throughout the restaurant and especially in the washrooms. The menu includes classics like beef bourguignon but isn't afraid to offer more adventurous dishes such as a standout crispy duck breast served with passion fruit and chocolate, and game when it is in season like deer and wild boar. Whatever you order, you'll find that the presentation is impeccable.
