A terrific dinner among gossamer wings
Let Papillon Restaurant take you on its elegant wings to the Butterfly Farm.
Elegant Papillon Restaurant is planning a stunning evening at the Butterfly Farm. Surrounded by fluttering gossamer wings, guests will be treated to specialty Hendricks Gin cocktails and an amuse in the garden before being led to their tables for a five-course extravagant dinner with superb wines. Tables will be set up throughout the Butterfly farm, so lovely, winged creatures will be forming a colorful backdrop to the plates that are served. A kitchen will be set up, so that Papillon’s chefs can whip up their delightful treats with all the seasonal specials on location. The Papillon dinner is held on July 4th; the cost is US 120.- per person.
Guests can expect the best of the best during the extraordinary evening, which is sponsored by the Aruba Trading Company (ATC). The fantastic twinkling lights that make everyone and everything sparkle in this botanical garden are courtesy of Patrick Verburg.
Papillon’s chefs and management have come up with the best possible pairing for the wines, which include a Veuve Cliquot 1995 Vintage Rose, Chablis Premier Cru, Super Tuscan and more. As there is space for only forty-five seated guests, pre-registration is necessary. And one of those forty-five will be the lucky winner of a magnum of Veuve Cliquot rosé. Who would not like to win one of those?
A bit of background information: Papillon, the name of the most famous escaped prisoner in the world, is also the French word for butterfly. The concept of hosting a `Papillon’ dinner in the butterfly garden is therefore a stroke of genius. Five years ago, the evening was a resounding success; guests still vividly remember the tremendous event.
Please make your reservation early: you can do so via mail, website or in person. You will receive a numbered ticket, which might make you the evening’s special winner.
