It’s coming. A gravy train with biscuit wheels. Cars of turkey, dressing, and pies followed by a caboose the size of a house.
Get on a healthier track at The Butcher’s Daughter, now open in a white-tiled corner shop in Nolita.
Heather Tierney (mixologist and owner of Apothéke and Pulqueria) tapped juice expert Brandi Kowalski (ABC Kitchen) and chef Joya Carlton (Buvette) to create a healthy menu that’s primarily vegan but tastes anything but.
Purists will love basic, color-based juices, though we’re keen on more complex concoctions with herbal infusions (hello, hangover killer with young Thai coconut, pineapple, yuzu, chili, evening primrose oil, and cilantro).
Snag a window stool for solo breakfast and house-made nut milk lattes or, come lunch, salads and sandwiches (avocado mash with curry; cashew mozzarella with roasted tomato and basil pesto). Faux charcuterie boards (mushroom-walnut pate, broccoli rillette, cashew ricotta) and kasha portobella burgers are best shared at the communal table.
