Enjoy Tastes from the Globe Without Ever Leaving Jersey
A true fusion-style eatery that pulls inspiration from New Orleans, Italy, the Caribbean Islands, and other foodie hot spots, this resto has been pleasing Orange residents for years, and was even afforded the honor of "Best Overall Restaurant" by Taste of Essex. We suggest you start your experience with the corn and crab croquettes, Cajun calamari, or freshly made Caprese salad. As far as entrées go, consider trying the flavorful mango shrimp, the crab-stuff filet of sole, or the signature jumbalya—a combination of rice, smoked turkey sausage, chicken, and jumbo shrimp sauteed with peppers and onions in a spicy Creole sauce. Regardless of what you choose from the expansive menu, be sure to pair your meal with an offering from Papillon 25's wine cellar, which boasts a selection just as eclectic as the restaurant itself.
