Buvette is a wine bar, restaurant, or simply a « gastrothèque » – a more appropriate term for naming such place opened all day long, from Breakfast to dinner. When I don’t want to search for a place, Buvette remains a safe bet in my repertoire. On the menu, good wine, little dishes to share and for cocktails, the Bee’s Knee’s which was unforgettable. For food, if you have friends hating veggies, they will change their mind after trying the roasted Choux de Brussels served with walnuts. When it comes to dessert, I can’t resist taking the creamy, fluffy and crazy chocolate-y Mousse au chocolat.
Behind Buvette – Pigalle hides the New York chef Jody Williams who already opened a Buvette in Greenwich Village. I have not yet been to that location but I heard that the food is exactly the same, maybe at the exception of some wine and the coffee, which comes from the local french roaster l’Arbre a Café.
For Breakfast, lunch, dinner, cocktail or brunch, WHERE? In the trendy South Pigalle, 28, rue Henry Monnier – Paris 75009

Sharing in this post another brunch / lunch spot I loved: Melvin’s Juice Box. They serve jamaican food in a very cool ambiance. Chicken Jerk Salad was incredible ! I saw the owner Melvin himself serving fresh juices, because Melvin’s is also the first Juice/Smoothie Bar in New York. Forget the traditional smoothies but expect spicy and unique ingredients in your drink. Not to be missed if you are in the area.
Address: 132 West Houston Street, Greenwich Village
