All children want to rebel against their parents, so it makes perfect sense that Nolita newcomer The Butcher's Daughter serves anything but what Daddy would. Heather Tierney—the boozy brain behind Pulqueria and the red hot (literally) Apotheke—has partnered with Brandi Kowalski and Joya Carlton to create a menu of juices and light cafe fare in a cheery, sun-filled space on Kenmare at Elizabeth Street. Don't let the meat hooks on the ceiling fool you: the menu is entirely meat-free.
Inside the white washed walls, diners can imbibe a selection of freshly-pressed juices—the "Rubies in the Dust" combines beet, carrot, ginger, local berries, plum, flax seed oil and rosemary—smoothies, nut milks and "Elixir" shots while seated at butcher's block tables. The mostly vegan menu has nods to classical meat dishes, including a Vegetable Charcuterie and Cheese Board ($16) with vegetable terrine and peppercorn cashew-chevre and a Butcher's Burger ($16) made with Kasha-Portobello mushroom and non-cheddar "cheese." Pop by in the morning for organic muesli and other breakfast items or swing through to grab a sandwich, salad or soup to go in the afternoon.
