    This used to be a playground for celebrities, now it’s a fun place to have a fancy dinner, especially if you get seated downstairs.

    Didn't make it out for Monday night? Go for dinner any other day of the week—it will more than make up for it. Chef Guarnaschelli definitely know's her way around a menu.

    Go to Butter during Restaurant Week. Eat delicious food for cheap and act like you're on Gossip Girl. Talk about Nelly Yuki during dessert.

    wasn't impressed with their food during restaurant week, BUT holy crap when we came back for their normal menu, we were blown away! Hudson Valley Foie Gras & Raspberry Beignets were to die for!

    Social ostracism can taste a lot like Bellinisat an empty table. Don't have a dinner for one like Blair Waldorf.

    This place is definitely special. Try the pear cocktail - to die for. Also, the raspberry beignets are their signature dessert for a reason. Take your time here. Enjoy every bite.

    Butter Mondays are legendary. Impossible to get in so don't even try unless you happen to be Brangelina ;)

    The bread is toasted to perfection, but its sea salt crusted top is the real showstopper. Absolutely divine. For an appetizer, order the Brussels sprouts with homemade ricotta

    As much as I love the ambiance here the place is starting to feel dated. Unimaginative cocktail list needs help. Why do the straws come with paper on top? Is this a diner??
