Not Accepted


Jody Williams likes to think small, and whereas her old haunt, the diminutive Gottino, was what she called a gastroteca, the 50-seat Buvette is her French-inspired gastroteque: a place where people meet for casual food and drink any time of day.

Williams’s artful renovation of the historic Pink Tea Cup space incorporates a marble bar, reclaimed-white-oak flooring, and a chandelier custom-made by artist Warren Muller, plus pinhole photography and hand-crafted leather baskets for the nuts she likes to serve as bar snacks. Why French? I always wanted to do a tarte Tatin, says Williams, who has stocked her menu with pissaladière, Provençal tians, croque monsieur, housemade charcuterie, and assorted tartines made with baguettes from Royal Crown. Of the lingering Italian influence pervasive throughout, she says, I can’t stop drinking Italian wine.
