Buvette restaurant in Paris

Buvette Gastrothèque

Manhattanite Jody Williams has brought her well-loved “gastrotheque” back to the city that inspired the original rustic-chic café. The appealing drinks menu includes artisanal cider, organic beer, a tight selection of wines, and pages of cocktail and apéritif options. Small plates range from 5-10€ and include plenty of vegetarian options (salads with fennel or beets, ratatouille, a croque with wild mushrooms and tangy cheese) alongside satisfying miniature versions of coq au vin, os à moelle, and hachis parmentier. Service is kind, the design is familiar but beautiful – all in all a great addition to the already booming neighborhood south of Pigalle.
