Gastroteque

The eating establishment Buvette (42 Grove Street in Manhattan) opened in 2011. On January 20, 2011, New York magazine (Grub Street New York) wrote this description from Buvette’s owner:

“Jody Williams likes to think small, and whereas her old haunt, the diminutive Gottino, was what she called a gastroteca, the new 50-seat Buvette is her French-inspired gastroteque: a place where people meet for casual food and drink any time of day (or at least between 8 a.m. and 2 a.m.).”

“Gastro-” (stomach) has also been used for the popular name “gastropub”; “-teque” means repository.

Introducing the ‘Gastroteca’

Even in the dead of winter, good new things keep happening to New York City. The Underground Gourmet giddily points out a new wine bar, Gottino, that is outpacing its panini-packing rivals.

Jody Williams Goes French

Jody Wiliams Brings Buvette to the West Village

Chef Jody Williams, formerly of Italian spot Gottino, is introducing the West Village to the idea of a “gastroteque,” or a place where neighborhood residents can gather pretty much any time of day for a drink and a nibble. Buvette is a small 50-seater that reminds us of the recently opened luncheonette Jeffrey’s Grocery, except with a focus on meats and cheeses rather than sandwiches (also, unlike Jeffrey’s, this spot will be open late).

Buvette in the West Village: Jody Williams Does French (Well)
Posted by The Serious Eats Team, March 22, 2011 at 11:00 PM
Not quite a wine bar, not quite an appetizer-and-entree restaurant, the new Buvette in the West Village calls itself a gastroteque—a French-styled establishment where small plates dominate the menu and wines are marked by provenance on the chalk map of Europe scrawled over one wall. Classy but determinedly casual, structured for drop-in dining and drinking, it’s well-suited to its neighborhood.
