Buvette Bistro & Wine Bar is a bright and airy French restaurant located inside Hotel Realm in Barton, and their new Petit Feast – definitely a feast, definitely not petite. However, after thinking about it some more, I’ve come to the realisation that perhaps ‘petit’ refers to the bite-sized nature of the food. A feast that’s designed to share with all these little morsels of heaven that are just screaming at you to try them.
Let’s start at the beginning, with a glass of rosé, some bread and an oyster each. Innocent enough until out comes a board with all manner of savoury goodies – cheeses, olives, cured meats, pâté, sandwiches, quiches, a little meat pie.
