Whenever it is meant to be… at Buvette

Buvette has been one of those cute, cute West Village French Tapas spots for a couple of years. One bad thing is that they don’t take reservations. Sometimes I happen to be near there and pop in, but oh my ~ always such a long wait so it is kinda hard for me to plan to come here. I guess I’ll dine here whenever it is meant to be… Amen!!!

I came here for a date night last time. I ordered a bunch of tapas to try. The most memorable dish was the rabbit stew pictured above. It was so yummy and comforting. I remember finding the octopus to be very salty, but HEY! I’m sure it’s already fixed. Otherwise this place wouldn’t be so popular still. No matter how cute places are or their great location, in the end it’s all about good food. Sometimes New Yorkers are so jaded and picky, just like me! (^o^) My name is Cutie Patroller and I am a jaded New York foodie! Bahahahaha!!!

Good luck getting a seat without waiting. If you don’t have enough time to wait or you are with someone for a first date, the bar seat is wonderful for two people as well. But you’ll probably find a wait list for that, too♪♪☆~(>__<)~☆♪♪

New update: I came back to Buvette summer 2015 so I added a few more photos. xo
