Long, long ago, I started using Evernote. And one of my first things to save in Evernote was the menu from Buvette, because it was so simple and inspiring and wonderful. And then the owner opened a replica of Buvette NYC in Paris. And then we happened to stay a few blocks away from it, and we happened to visit a shop where the owner said, “You should have lunch at Buvette!” And so, years later, my dream came true.
Oh, Buvette. You are so very me. How cute are you with your stacked plates and displays and loveliness?
With your lovely bar and bowls of eggs and pitchers of water?
With your chalkboard of wine regions and tiny tables?
With your gorgeous menu full of good things?
Which both Justin and I loved?
With beer cocktails…
And lovely spirits?
And your wonderful water carafes and tiny cups?
And your nonchalant bread with a spoonful of soft butter? No big deal, just AMAZING.
And your creamy eggs with asparagus or mushrooms, atop wonderful bread and with the freshest pistou? And a tiny plate of leeks atop a tiny little stand?
And it made me so happy that I actually posed for a photo with my new tiny skull pin from Le Rocketship.
And then the receipt came in this beautifully designed holder, and it was only 39 euros.
WTF, Buvette? How do you rock so much?
P.S. If anyone feels like spending money on me, I would like the Buvette cookbook like NOW. ;) ♥
