Buvette is a West Village landmark. Since opening in 2011, Chef Jody Williams spot has captured a quaint and tasty spot in the neighborhood. Best enjoyed over a leisurely afternoon espresso, brunch or lunch. Enjoy delicious Parisian style egg dishes, scrumptious pastries and a Bloody Mary or coffee. It's tight so avoid bringing a big group. Save it for that good freind you need to catchup with or tht special someone you want to get to know better.

When you're looking for a great cocktail in the Village and looking to seem a little 'extra local' head to the Garret. You enter through the Five Guy's on the block and then walk all the way to the back. There's a staircase in the back that will take you to the Garret.

Relaxed bar serving some cool cocktails like a great spicy tequila.
