Rarely has there been a time in last 5 years or so, that I or we have not had a breakfast at Buvette if we are in NYC. I have had countless memorable meals there with friends as well as have dined solo when a quick trip into the city for biz calls. Yesterday it was with our friend CoCo from Portland who was also walking the show buying for her shop. It is always fun to see this incredibly special eatery through new eyes.
Buvette opens at 8 in the morning and serves continuously throughout the day, closing at 2 in the morning. 7 days a week. So really anytime you are hungry, it is open. They don’t take reservations and the space is petite, but I have never ever waiting very long to get a table. Actually, I rarely have ever had to wait.
Yet the space is always busting with stylish New Yorkers, so people watching is a delight. The food, out of this world. Chef Jody Williams has a way of turning everything into something sublime. Whether it be a meal or a space.
Even the planters outside are divine. No detail has been missed. You feel transported to a slower time, with a bit of Paris thrown in. Both of those feelings rate pretty high in my book, especially when in the city where all moves at lightening speed. It is always such a treat to just ‘be’ there.
