Breaking News: Buffet de la Gare Back to the Goulets; Closed for Renovations


Gwenael and Annie Goulet, along with their son Gwendal, have taken back ownership of Buffet de la Gare in Hastings-on-Hudson.

In 2005, they sold the restaurant to Luc Dimnet, a Frenchman from Alsace who had been the chef at Brasserie, and his wife, Nicole. Dimnet is back cooking at Brasserie.

The Goulets are closing the restaurant so that they can wall off half of the restaurant and return that lease to its landlord. They hope to reopen the south half of the restaurant in mid-summer with two new bathrooms, a bumped-out bay window and new floors. They’re keeping the bar — and they’re keeping the old bistro-style feel of the restaruant.

The menu will change slightly — perhaps some smaller plates and lighter dishes — but chef Gwenael will still offer his French classics: cassoulet, escargot and sweetbreads.

Buffet de la Gare,  155 Southside Ave., Hastings-on-Hudson. 914-478-1671.
