The Butcher’s Daughter
From the name, you might expect The Butcher’s Daughter to be a meat emporium of some kind. But, no. This joint is all about plants, vegetables and other meat-free marvels. And it’s everything you’d hope for, if you’ve been to one of the other outposts in New York. Painted white brick as far as the eye can see, festooned with draping greenery and blonde wood. There are shelves heavy with wine, wicker baskets and copper detailing. And, of course, menus that account for every meal of the day, filled with moreish dishes, fresh juices and smoothies, and hot drinks ranging from straightforward coffees and teas to “wellness lattes”.
At Butcher’s Daughter, you can start the day with a Solar Power smoothie (avocado, pineapple, coconut, kale, coriander and hemp protein) or, if you’re in need, the Hangover Killer juice (young Thai coconut, yuzu, pineapple, chili and coriander). Maybe a fresh-baked pastry, or the so-called “Best Egg Sandwich”, which, with farm eggs and homemade English muffin toast, baby kale, cheddar and harissa mayo, could actually be the best one we’ve tried.
Moving on through the day, diners at The Butcher’s Daughter will find a sweeping range of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free dishes on offer. We’re talking everything from daily market stone-oven pizzas and pad Thai to salted caramel affogato. There are salads, wraps, “elixir” shots of pure veg-based goodness, handmade pastas and more. And the best thing? Not only will you leave feeling sated and reeling from a rush of great food, but you’ll be seriously, healthily nourished to boot.
