Dinner, Dessert, Drinks, More Dessert

-- Twas the order of my awesome Friday night with the ex-roomie.

We spent 4 hours together and stopped by 3 places: Momofuku Noodle Bar, Dessert Club ChikaLicious (such a funny name), and then got drinks and another dessert at Butter.

When you enter Butter, there's a long hallway before you reach the restaurant and bar area. I was surprised at how pretty and romantic the place was. Loved the combination of high ceilings, little white lights, warm lighting, and fresh flowers. Hmm... it could be really nice to have a small wedding dinner there.

The bar where we parked ourselves at for a good hour. It got quite crowded by 9:30pm.

Butter martini: svedka citron vodka, pams pomegranite liqueur, cointreau & splash of pineapple. Nice and strong. The cocktails were standard prices of $14 each.

There's no such thing as too much dessert! This was our second dessert of the night. Beignets with raspberry filling in the middle ($10). Just the right amount of chewiness, warmth, and sugary layer on top. Came with a side of vanilla sauce.

Such a lovely night. Would definitely come back to Butter. Some people at the bar sitting next to us ordered the foie gras and it was presented so beautifully my mouth started to water.
A plus of this restaurant-- I got 15% off the bill with my am club card :)
