Part restaurant, part bar, part café, Buvette Gastrotheque combines the elegance of an old world cafe with the casual nature of a neighborhood eatery on a leafy block in the West Village, giving the the street a Parisian je ne sais quoi. The long, marble-topped bar is filled with stylishly bespectacled regulars sipping wine and nibbling tartines made from Royal Crown baguettes, the floor is made from reclaimed white oak, and artist Warren Muller's custom-made chandelier gives the 50-seat space a twinkly glow. This is gastropubbery at its best: think perfectly made omelet topped with fresh parmesan, crusty bread with hazelnut pesto, and no fewer than three types of croque monsieurs.
