Helmed by Chef Karys Logue, until now Butter has only lived online. A virtual cake shop of baked-to-order nostalgic delights. But from December through May 2021, nine of Butter’s most popular cakes and pies will be available by the slice at Landmark and just in time for the festive season.
Butter’s retro Americana offerings have always stemmed from founder Christopher Mark’s nostalgia for diners. As an 80’s kid, the diners he grew up in were already a little faded and past their heyday, but the waitresses still called you darlin’ and the desserts were comforting, delicious and unfussy. Nobody took pictures of their food so flavour was really what mattered and this is the ethos with which Chef Karys approaches everything at Butter. Classic American baking techniques, executed with a lot of love.
