The Butcher’s Daughter: A juice bar and more!

The Butcher’s Daughter

In New York, eating healthy means adopting a vegetarian or gluten free lifestyle! The Butcher’s Daughter is part of that trend!
The Butcher’s Daughter is a juice bar but also serves coffee and is essentially a vegetarian restaurant. Created in 2012 by Heather Tierney who own 2 additional spots: the cocktail bar Apotheke and the Mexican restaurant Pulqueria, both located in Chinatown. After noticing that most fresh juices were lacking creativity, Heather decided to create her juices with exotic fruits, roots and fresh herbs.
But why choose a name like “The Butcher’s Daughter”? At The Butcher’s Daughter, fresh market products are treated just like at the butcher. There are cut and prepared to be used in vegetarian dishes or squeezed in fresh and original juices.

What can we eat at The Butcher’s Daughter?

All dishes on the menu are prepared daily with fresh and locally grown ingredients, vegetarian and lactose free. Each month, a vegetable and a fruit are celebrated. In May for instance, green apples and fiddleheads (ferns sprouts) are in honor.
Needless to say, you must try one of these creative juices. I really liked the Honey Bee part of the “Heritage Juice” ($9) and it contains: grapefruit, curcuma roots, yuzu, kumquat, pear, honey and bee pollen.
You can also seat down for breakfast, lunch, brunch or dinner. For lunch, I recommend the Spicy Kale Caesar Salad for $12 (Kale is a trendy vegetable in New York right now), or the famous smashed avocado toasts for $11.
On the other hand, I do not recommend their scones, or muffins, a bit too dry to my taste.

Size and design of the space

The Butcher’s Daughter is worth a visit just for the decor!
Green plants and fresh herbs adorn the tables and the walls to soften the industrial side of the place (natural wood, concrete floors and brick walls) creating a successful welcoming mix and joining the green atmosphere of the place.
The restaurant is rather small (no individual tables but a large table and a bar along the windows) but in summer you can enjoy the outside seating.
