Butter Branches Out, and the Meats Are Masterly

The newish Midtown outpost of Butter serves one stellar Berkshire pork chop. It's nicely seared outside, slightly pink in the center, seasoned with mustard, and crowned with roasted shiitakes, Chowhound coasts reports—a smart order among a lineup of destination meat courses that include an aged tomahawk rib steak (pictured). On the side, try an irresistible Jerusalem artichoke gratin with Gruyère. TV chef Alex Guarnaschelli's Midtown menu is similar to the one at her original Butter downtown, which remains closed for renovations.
