Lately, I feel like I’ve been spending majority of my evenings and weekends at cafes. I can be pretty picky with cafes because when I go to one, I tend to camp out there for hours as I type away on my laptop. This past weekend the café of choice was Berkli Parc.
After starring at our screens for a few hours, Sami and I decided to go for a walk around the neighborhood. We happened upon The Butcher’s Daughter. Neither of us knew anything about it but we loved the stylish outdoor seating and everyone’s plate looked pretty good so we decided to give it a shot.
Carbonara, Bolognese, Butcher’s Burger – by the titles of the dishes on the menu it sounded like a typical NYC restaurant. However, once we took a look at the details of each dish we realized all of the dishes were vegetarian! I was pretty impressed with the selection on the menu and how they were able to get creative with dishes that typically contain meat.
We decided to try the spinach artichoke crock, the angel hair carbonara, and a side of crispy cauliflower. With no meat, we were both a little nervous that we would be hungry afterwards but to be honest it was just right! My favorite part was breaking into the egg on top of the carbonara – molto bene!
The restaurant also had a selection of fun “popsicle” cocktails that I would love to go back and try. Between the décor, food, and ambiance I’d say it was an evening well spent!
