Before entering the Papillon, you may be apprehensive about the restaurant's possibly pompous or extravagant environment. The restaurant is altogether the opposite. Stepping inside, you will be greeted by obliging, friendly waiters and your uneasiness will most likely disappear as mine had. This was Friday night when my boyfriend took me out to dinner here, and the wait to be seated was only about 5 minutes. Looking around the restaurant I noticed the customers at the bar and tables were laughing and talking comfortably. No one was dressed overly fancy, so in general I felt no sense of arrogance in the environment. Their choice of paintings, intricate wallpaper, ornate ceiling fans, and the overall color themes within the separate rooms were all tastefully put together and created a pleasant atmosphere for dining with friends, family, or a date.

Anyone who is looking to watch a movie that will take them through a rollercoaster of action and violence should definitely check out From Paris with Love, starring John Travolta, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. The movie was released February 5, 2010, and follows James Reece (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), who is a personal assistant to the U.S. ambassador of France. Although that is his primary job, he takes great pride in his side job as a low level operative for the CIA. Because he is a low level operative, he strives to receive a higher position in the CIA, and immediately jumps at the opportunity when he is offered his first high leveled assignment, however, he is caught off guard when he learns his partner is Charlie Wax (John Travolta), a rebellious, loudmouth, unorthodox, and extremely violent operative. To make matters even worse for Reece, he discovers that Wax and he are working to prevent a terrorist attack from occurring, and that he himself is also a target of the crime.
