Voulez Bar

“Voulez” in French means, “You want.”  When you arrive at Voulez Bar, a French bistro and cafe in Buenos Aires, it’s pretty clear, yes, you do want.

It’s not just that you might be tired of steak and excited to eat a little quiche/tarta with some fresh greens dressed in a very French way.  Of course, the space is beautiful, with large windows that let in the kind of light that makes the most lowly glass of white wine gleam and glimmer.  It is obviously popular, despite being a little expensive by porteño standards, filled with ladies lunching, businessmen dining, and a trio of Americans who seemed more like expats than tourists judging by their self-satisfied conversation.  (I would be self-satisfied, too, if I managed to figure out a way to live there.)

It’s just the magic that’s always in the best cafes.  It’s that perfect low-level buzz of noise that comes from the echo of voices and clinking silverware, and the feeling that you can sit as long as you want looking out the window.  You can be alone but have conversation surround you.

And the quiche really is very good.
