In our Daily Veg series, we've been profiling vegetable dishes we love all over the city. But some restaurants do so many vegetable dishes so fantastically that we can't pick just one. So we're inducting them into our "Vegetable Heroes" hall of fame. First up? Buvette.
When we first visited this charming wine bar and restaurant from Jody Williams, we were struck by how much we loved all of the simple-seeming salads and vegetables, from a Pecorino-laced Savoy cabbage to salsify with red wine and Roquefort. At a time of year when many of us tire of winter's limited produce, Williams shows how leeks, cabbage, and kale can be every bit as exciting as spring and summer's bounty.
Check out some of Buvette's winter offerings here. (Dishes range from $8-12; Buvette's menu rotates often, so not all dishes may be available.)
