I love tasting menus for several reasons. They give the chef freedom to curate a meal as they see fit, and it allows me to try different dishes I wouldn't normally order. While they don't allow you to substitute dishes at La Buvette, they do cater to vegetarians and those with food allergies. Additionally, you can order two different "sizes" with more, or fewer, dishes. I found all of the dishes to be creative, delicious, and quite filling. Service was impeccable, and the atmosphere was lively with a variety of diners from large groups of friends to intimate dates. Oh, and if you're wondering about the candle at the end, it was for a belated birthday celebration. They definitely didn't go around lighting candles on everyone's dishes!
