Don’t be fooled by its quirky name - The Butcher's Daughter is actually an all vegan/vegetarian juicery and restaurant-café in Manhattan’s trendy Nolita ‘hood. Since its opening last November, the restaurant has been working its way into the hearts of New York’s health-conscious clientele, who come for the bright atmosphere, fresh juices and simple, elegant, vegetable dishes. The Butcher’s Daughter is the newest addition to Heather Tierney’s group of trendy downtown spots, which also include the trendy cocktail bar Apotheke and Pulqueria. We sat down with Chef Joya Carlton to learn the secret recipe for “The Best Kale Salad”, as it is named on the menu. Click through our slideshow to see how to make it!
