New York City is filled with cute hotspots to visit. There were just too many places for my mom and I to go but we did manage to go to a couple food places I had on my hotspot list. One of those hotspots was The Butcher’s Daughter. You might recognize this name because it has been all over Instagram. That’s actually how I found it. I was curious to see if this very well-known hotspot would be like I imagined it to be through Instagram… And it was!
THE BUTCHER’S DAUGHTER | 581 Hudson St, New York
The Butcher’s Daughter is a plant-based restaurant, cafe, juice bar and “vegetable slaughterhouse”. When I first saw the name, I was confused but that’s where the name actually comes from! At The Butcher’s Daughter you can have breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch, snacks and dinner. I was really interested to see what they would have on their menu, since it’s 100% vegetarian, and mostly vegan and gluten-free. 🌱
My mom and I went to the location of The Butcher’s Daughter in West Village and wanted to have breakfast here. We got there just in time because after we sat down, there weren’t any places left. I was very happy with the place my mom and I got because it was a very cute table with big chairs near the window. Something that immediately caught my eye, were all of the plants. As you know, I love plants and it kind of felt like we were in a garden. Besides that, the white painted brick wall in combination with small detailing of wood (and the plants of course), kind of describes my perfect interior.
As I already said, I was very curious to see the menu since it was completely vegetarian with lots of vegan and gluten-free options. When I had a look at the menu I was pleasantly surprised. I saw so many things that I didn’t think were able to be served as vegan and gluten-free. So after browsing all the dishes, I went for the Butcher’s Pancakes, which consisted of home-made rice flour pancakes with almond milk batter served with whipped coconut cream and berry sauce 🥞. My mom got the Triple Berry French Toast, which was 9-grain bread, almond milk and egg batter served with banana, raspberry and blueberries, topped with whipped strawberry vegan butter and pure maple syrup. A whole mouth full if you ask me but both of our dishes were very good! Now I am very interested in trying to make my own vegan pancakes because they tasted so good.
When in New York, you should definitely visit one of the locations of The Butcher’s Daughter. My mom and I went to the West Village location (581 Hudson Street), but there’s also a location in Nolita (19 Kenmare Street) and Williamsburg (271 Metropolitan Avenue). Even if you do eat meat, you just have to give the food a try. It’s really good and they have something for everybody. Have you ever been to The Butcher’s Daughter? What dish would you like to try?
