Overview

Resembling a swanky speakeasy from the 1920’s, Bavette’s is a popular spot to meet up for classic cocktails and scintillating sparklers. At this “bar and boeuf” restaurant, the Four Taverns Restaurant Group has created an intimate space where dry-aged steaks sidle up with oysters from both coasts and meals are complete with a scoop of whiskey ice cream.
