As I have said many times before, brunch, especially in New York City, is a great opportunity to get together with friends or family and enjoy a lazy weekend meal!
I do enjoy going on walks and ending up at random places that turn out to have amazing food by myself, but sometimes its so much more enjoyable with company.
During my first week in the city, I went with my sister, Karsten and her friend Blair to the beloved Butcher’s Daughter. I had come here as well with my mom the first time I ever came to New York.
The Butcher’s Daughter has multiple locations in the city, and we ventured to the one in Nolita. Known for their creative all vegetarian dishes (although none of us are vegetarians), and relaxing space, we had to check it out!
Even the water looks amazing as garnished it with fresh mint sprigs.
Between the three of us, we got two sandwiches, toast and a juice and a smoothie.
Their classic avocado toast, a go-to of mine, was two slices of 9-grain bread, topped with smashed avocado, mustard seeds, and sprouts.
The winter blt consisted of vegetarian bacon, roasted tomato, wine-braised onions, spicy mayo, and herbs-de-provance, all within two slices of toasted sourdough.
When my mom and I went, I distinctly remember getting the spicy kale caesar salad (chipotle marinated kale, crispy red onions, avocado, toasted almonds, almond Parmesan, croutons) and how delicious it was.
As I can’t remember the exact name of the drinks we got, I believe that you can’t go wrong with any of the smoothies or juices, as they taste so fresh, and have amazing flavor.
The price range for this restaurant was between $10 and $20 per dish, so somewhat more affordable according to NYC prices.
I will never forget my memories of coming to this restaurant with my sister and her friend because we had such a great time just hanging out together.
I would encourage everyone to venture out there and try a great meal with even greater company! Even if you are not in The Big Apple!
