Butterleaf is plant-based cuisine for people who like to eat. Seasonal vegetables take a bountiful center stage at Chef Andrew Gruel's 3rd bold, new food concept (Prev Slapfish and Two Birds). Too many people have the misconception that vegetables can't be filling. You don't have to sacrifice hunger for eating well. At Butterleaf, a rotating variety of vegetables make for hearty dishes, leaving you satisfied and full without the guilt.

Everything is made to order, allowing us to serve many different special dietary needs including gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian and vegan entrees.
