Under the culinary stewardship of renowned chef Jose Delgado, affectionately known as ‘Pupi,’ the restaurant promises a dining experience that transports patrons to the sunny shores of Latin America.

This ensures that guests can enjoy their meals in a cozy atmosphere tailored to their preferences.

It’s not just about serving delicious food; it’s about sharing their passion for Latin American cuisine with their neighbors and visitors alike.

You can stop by Papelon for their grand opening on May 17th. They will also be featured during Wildwood Restaurant Showcase, which is this week (May 8th).
