Butter’s dramatic interior features cathedral ceilings, supper club booths and a seasonally changing mural of an American landscape.
A favorite among models and the hipster crowd, NoHo’s Butter has quickly become a hot spot since opening in late April on Lafayette Street in Manhattan.
The dining room features a dramatic interior, with cedar cathedral ceilings, classic supper club booths and a seasonally changing photographic mural of an American landscape. The American-fare menu, under the direction of executive chef Keith Harry, also changes seasonally and includes popular dishes like tuna encrusted in black olives with a lemon risotto.
And with a name like Butter, of course there’s a big emphasis on butter. Diners can choose from foie gras, herb, French cream and lemon zest for their bread.
"My menu is small and I’ve tried to put a lot of American and Asian flavors into it," chef Harry said. "But I love a French influence, with rich and heavy food. Flavorful, approachable, direct and easy to interpret, that’s my style."
Signature dishes include rich and delicious sauteed scallops with grilled foie gras; mache salad with smoked sturgeon and baby beets; roasted monk fish served with a gingered eggplant sauce and shitaki mushrooms, and grilled rib eye with shallot red wine sauce. Non-meat eaters can enjoy the grilled warm portobello salad with baby arugula and creamy ricotta falata cheese. Finish it off with the black tea tapioca served with raspberry marmalade and vanilla poached pears, and the milk chocolate walnut cake topped with milk chocolate and walnut mousse.
Appetizers range from $12 to $16, entrées from $24 to $30, and desserts from $8 to $10. Butter, 415 Lafayette Street, (212) 253-2828.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
