Original Penguin Gets Buttered
For New Yorkers checking out the recently opened midtown location of Butter (at 70 West 45th Street), we have a little din-din small talk for your next meal. The entire staff of the place has been outfitted by Original Penguin, with the boys donning classic oxford in grey and blue, and the girls in burgundy A-line dresses. Very appetizing. As for the Alex Guarnaschelli-helmed menu, selections include a house-made veal bacon with red wine mustard; Hudson Valley duck rillettes with champagne grape mostarda; and organic chicken liver mousse on matzo with a schmaltz vinaigrette. Just don’t get anything on your waiter.
