Jody Williams is a miniaturist in everything but ambition. She likes small spaces, small servings, small glasses—even diminutive, doll-house-size spoons. Not that anyone should leave her French-inspired “gastroteque” unsatisfied. Plates might be small, but they’re generally rich, from slices of toasted baguette with anchovies and cultured butter to three crusty, gooey variations on open-face croques monsieur, and especially a dense, deeply chocolaty mousse that’s better consumed in measured bites (or spoonlets, if you will). At once welcoming and elegant, Buvette pulls off that neat trick of feeling rooted in its neighborhood and atmospherically transporting at the same time.
