I am looking forward to hosting my first event for NYC Vegetarian & Vegan Meetup. I am lucky, because my first venue is at such a great location: The Butcher's Daughter. This is the first time our group has had a meet up at this location!

It offers an incredible menu that is great for both health conscious diners as well as those looking for a delicious meal. You will find a wide variety of dishes here. All are vegetarian and most are vegan.

From The Butcher's Daughter's website: "At The Butcher’s Daughter, we treat fruits and vegetables as a butcher would meat: We chop, fillet and carve fresh produce into healthy vegetarian dishes and press them into pretty juices."

(Website continued:) "The Butcher’s Daughter serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend brunch in a 35-seat light-filled space. During the warmer months, our sidewalk terrace expands with an additional 30 seats outside. We take pride in our daily-changing menu, which is 100% vegetarian and non-dairy. Most of our menu items are vegan and gluten-free, and we can always prepare substitutions for most dietary restrictions."

Here is their Dinner Menu (

Time Out New York says: "Chef Joya Carlton serves witty variations on classic carnivore dishes, like a beet tartare, and a "charcuterie" plate featuring a roasted-vegetable terrine, broccoli rillette and cashew ricotta with fig mostarda. Perch at the 16-foot-long bar for one of the colorful concoctions from "juiceologist" Brandi Kowalski. After a long night, reach for a Hang Over Killer, a pina colada–like mixture of coconut water, pineapple juice, yuzu, chili and evening primrose oil. The drinks menu also includes immune-boosting elixir shots (such as wheatgrass), and eye-opening La Colombe Torrefaction coffee, which you can lighten with one of the house-made nut milks. Butcher-block counters, a produce-filled display case and vegetables hanging from meat hooks complete the theme."

New York Magazine: "Healthy fare gets a stylish upgrade at this vegetarian café from the cocktail maven behind Apothéke and Pulqueria and a former chef at Buvette. The breakfast sandwich, with a cooked egg, cashew cheese, kale, and tomato jam on an English muffin, is a balanced meal in itself. It hits both sweet and savory notes, solving the ultimate conundrum of brunch-ordering. The menu includes an exceptional organic muesli, accented by local fruits and almond milk, and curry-flavored smashed avocado toast. It's clear that the kitchen is showing restraint—nothing is too sweet, too rich, or too spicy. There’s also cold-pressed juice: The Goddess of Green (kale, cucumber, green apple, fennel, pineapple, thyme, and blue green algae) is easy to drink in one sitting, but the almond milk is in need of sweetener. This could be the kind of café you frequent daily and nightly."

For those of you who have never attended one of our Meetup events: this is an incredibly friendly & welcoming group. Everyone pays for their own meal. Easy!
