It’s been forever since I’ve written a Healthy Hot Spot post. Why? Because David and I are eating at home more than ever and we love it. We DO get out on occasion (a girl’s gotta live a little!). But I swear now that my belly is used to home-cooked food, restaurant food mostly feels too heavy and salty.
Then we stepped foot into The Butcher’s Daughter and that all changed — at least for a few hours.
I have to say we weren’t too sure about this place. We’d driven by a few times, the reviews were a little hit or miss and David’s hard to convince on vegan food. I think the word “Butcher” in the name could have helped in this case.
We approached the vegan-inspired Nolita eatery with hesitation but once inside we were instantly taken with the bright, sunny space and chill vibe.
All very inviting.
While the namesake would suggest otherwise, the menu is in fact mostly vegan with smoothies and juices galore, and a few egg dishes sprinkled in.
All local, fresh and sustainable right down to the reclaimed wood and fixtures.
The restaurant was packed for lunch late on a Sunday afternoon but we were able to squeeze into two seats at the communal table.
When We Dined: Lunch, Sunday

Be In the Know: Go early for the best selection. Popular menu items and daily specials tend to sell out.
