The new outpost of plant-based restaurant The Butcher’s Daughter invites Brooklyn diners to ‘CBD their dish’.

Proving it has a finger firmly on the wellness pulse, The Butcher’s Daughter in Williamsburg wants to top off your meal with a drizzle of CBD olive oil, or spike your green juice with a drop of CBD-infused MCT (medium-chain triglyceride oil).

Cannabinol (CBD) is the healing compound found in cannabis. Not to be confused with THC – its psychoactive sister compound responsible for inducing that high feeling – it has been shown to reduce stress, anxiety, and inflammation, which is why many New Yorkers have embraced the ingredient as a way to enhance their overall health.

“I always try to curate each menu based on the community we are opening in front of, and I felt that Brooklyn was ready and open minded enough to explore a new style of eating,” Executive Chef Richard Rea explains. “Personally, I have been playing around with this for over a year and half and could not be more excited to finally put it on the menu for this specific crowd.”

If you’re worried about CBD adding a funky taste to your meal, don’t be. Rea says it has a subtle earthy flavor that goes with virtually the entire menu. His personal recommendations are the 7 Minutes in Heaven smoothie or the Stone Fruit and Tomato Jam Toast, which has a sweetness that pairs well with the richness of the oil.

All CBD products The Butcher’s Daughter uses are made by New York-based company Plant People, which sources industrialized organic hemp from Colorado. It’s totally legal and contains less than 0.3% THC, because the goal is to have you feeling calm and relaxed by the time you receive the check, not get you buzzed at brunch.
