Many of you may recognize the familiar butterfly logo of the extraordinary French restaurant Le Papillon, located on Saratoga Avenue in San Jose. Established in 1977, owner Mike Mashayekh's talent and passion has resulted in one of the finest restaurants in the Bay Area.
You may not know though, that Le Papillon also caters special events outside of their restaurant.
I have worked with Mike and Jondel in previous years, and their ability to bring their culinary excellence from their five star restaurant to anywhere a client chooses has proven to be amazing. One can dine under the stars in the middle of an open field with Le Papillon's fabulous food and exceptional service!
I will always remember a wedding that I worked on together with Mike and Jondel, at Villa Montalvo. It was important to the couple to have a full vegetarian menu for their reception. Mike and his chef created a phenomenal 5 course vegetarian menu, which blew the guests away!
A couple of weeks ago, Mike outdid himself again by generously inviting 50 Event Professionals to his restaurant to enjoy a four course luncheon. We were allowed to pick directly from the menu and I must admit it was VERY difficult to choose because everything sounded so delicious. It was such an enjoyable afternoon lunching with my good friends in the industry. Thank you so much to Mike and Jondel for organizing this fabulous event!
