Gossip Girl will be proud !
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.
Butter, delightfully beautiful.
Try the Ny Strip Steak With Peppercorn Butter, Oyster Mushrooms, And Deep Fried Onions

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.
Kevin is the cutest waiter.

Great for restaurant week
Try the Pork Porterhouse
Soft shell crab is to die for!
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!
Came when it first opened as a fan of the chef, and love the recipes. Challenging recipes, awsome venues.
Loving this place on Monday night.
Social ostracism can taste a lot like Bellinisat an empty table. Don't have a dinner for one like Blair Waldorf.
Great spot back in the day.
Service was fantastic. Great apps and martinis. Loved our waiter.
beautiful restaurant! the service was excellent... order the duck and if you stay for dessert try the raspberry filled donuts! YUM
Garlic potatoes and the sweet corn crime brûlée! Do it.
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.
Have to ask for bread and butter, and you will be glad you did it melts in your mouth :)
Gg!! Still didn't get why all parties downstairs ? What the difference ??
Maya shrimp for a great surf n turf and finish off with the white chocolate soufflé
Great ambiance, great music, great food, great service, great choice. Very pleased. Specialty cakes you can preorder for special occasions are delicious.
Don't get the rabbit, everything else looks amazing, duck was awesome, skip the rabbit ant you'll leave more than satisfied! Raspberry beignets are mindblowing!!
Oh. My. God. Raspberry Beignets.
Butter, delightfully beautiful.
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
Arctic char was awesome. Gooseberry salad was missing gooseberries!
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??
The Raspberry Beignets are the dessert to have. So yummy!
Try the Great Atsby martini- grapefruity and delicious!

If you get the option sit downstairs. Its nice and quiet.
Chef Alex Guarnaschelli was featured at Cochon 555 2013 in New York City.
Awesome for Restaurant Week. The atmosphere is great.
Try the Macoun Apple Crumble
Try the Sea Bass With Asian Pear - Crispy skin on the fish & the pears were pickled in something that imparted a sweet & spicy thing on the tongue.
Try the Warm Burrata With Fettucine - Oozing cheese, how can it be bad, plus the macaroni was cooked perfectly
