Butter from NYC

I took a trip to NYC and as always I picked up a few butters that I haven't seen on the west coast. (Luckily I remembered to take them out of the hotel fridge this time!)

When I am traveling, many of the brands are new to me it and it is difficult to know what is a good quality butter and what is a factory-store butter. I often take out my phone and do online research. I also look for key words like, pasture raised, family-owned farms, grass fed, and organic. I searched for gourmet markets in Manhattan, hoping to find some tasty butter. Below are a few of the stores where I purchased butter.

I am going to pick up some Manresa bread and try my new butters. I will post on these butters soon.

Le District is a French-inspired shopping district. This market is filled with culinary-specific stations, a brasserie-style restaurant, a bar serving artisanal drinks and delicious small plates, and a fresh grocery curated by talented chefs and taste-makers.

They had a good variety of French imported butters.

Le District is located in Brookfield Place, adjacent to the North Cove Harbor, and steps away from the World Trade, the 9/11 Memorial Museum.

Morton Williams is a family-owned and operated food market that was next door to our hotel. They had a nice selection of butter and I was excited to find Finlandia butter on the shelf.
