Times may change, but our rich tradition of superb quality remains a constant. Since 1915, Butterfield has been part of New York City history.
Named for its original area telephone exchange, Butterfield began as a humble home delivery service to such illustrious families as the Astors and Rockefellers. But once Teddy "Mr. Butterfield” Appelbaum began knocking on our neighbors’ doors, we began finding the community roots that make us who we are today.
Our commitment to serving delicious food made with the best ingredients helped our original Upper East Side storefront grow into Butterfield Market, Catering, Gifts, and Cafes just two generations later. A family business in every sense of the word, we believe in warm, friendly service, attentiveness to detail, and above all, a great meal.
