At Cassa Hotel, Butter Restaurant has maintained an exclusive niche restaurant scene for stylish Manhattanites since its initial inception on Lafayette St. in 2002. The American restaurant is helmed by Food Network star and Executive Chef Alex Guarnaschelli, who uses greenmarket offerings to create a seasonal menu. Butter began as Guarnaschellis' first restaurant as executive chef, and she has gone on to create a following for herself worldwide. The dining room at Butter offers a unique atmosphere and decor. Between high arching ceilings- caped with a large format nature scape, cozy booths- perfect for a romantic night out, and an inviting bar, Butter caters to any guest, whether they are seeking either a formal dining experience or one that is more casual. The restaurant has been featured Zagat, Eater, Grub Street, and the Wall Street Journal. Butter midtown is the perfect venue to host your next private event whether it is a special occasion, lunch meeting or cocktail reception. We can accommodate all group sizes from intimate dinners to large format events.
