Butter…a restaurant with such a name must be predestined to serve amazing food. And it does. At least the Butter Restaurant in NYC. The décor is avant-garde with wooden panels and a large birch-forest picture at the end wall, and Butter has also got enough it-status to appear as the background restaurant in one of the Gossip Girl episodes.
Because of some confusion regarding the location, we were around 30 minutes late for our table, but fortunately it was still vacant and a friendly and welcoming waitress showed us to our seats and introduced us to the menu’s highlights as well as the evening’s specials.
We all had a New York Strip, along with a bottle of sparkling wine to start with, followed by a bottle of Spanish red wine later. The bill for the evening was just below $100 per person. Considering what you get for the same amount of money in Copenhagen (MASH, I’m looking at you), I can’t help wondering why I haven’t moved to NYC yet? All in all, Butter was the perfect place to start a Saturday night. A Saturday night, which later continued with Jaeger Bombs and cocktails, but that’s a different story…
