Paris via the West Village

One of my favorite restaurants Buvette was recently featured on One King's Lane.  My husband, Philippe and I have been going to Buvette since 2012 and we love it because it truly gives you the feeling you're in Paris.  Every detail by the owner, Jody Williams has been fully considered, from the menu, wine list to the interior design, yet it manages to be neither precious or pretentious.  It's now so popular it's almost impossible to get in unless you're prepared to wait sometimes up to an hour, however it's worth the wait and the staff is welcoming and professional.  Yes, its definitely a big fave!!
