Sushi Kaito was an amazing culinary experience. Sitting at the sushi bar watching the head chef lovingly and artistically prepare each sushi one by one for our omakase was incredible. The fish was extremely fresh and well prepared. The service was outstanding and it was a true japanese experience. Would recommend in a heartbeat. This very quiet place is a hidden gem. I already made another reservation. More

French | East Village, Manhattan

My boyfriend and I dined at Papilles for the first time on Saturday and opted for 4 course tasting menu. We had Leak(appetizer), Striped bass (main) and Lamb (main), followed by Clementine for dessert. Portions were not small for tasting menu. So, we took one of the desserts to go. We were very impressed with every dish. Each dish was beautifully presented, perfectly prepared and all ingredients tasted so fresh. We also loved the sauce that came with each dish. Chef is extremely talented. Cocktail was just as creative and equally beautifully presented and tasty. Service is efficient and friendly. We just made another reservation to go back in 4 weeks. Papilles definitely stays on our list of favorite restaurants and we cannot wait to go back. More
