Empire builder Michael White seems to be in a nostalgic mode as of late. His last opening, gilded steakhouse Costata, marked his return to the space of his first NYC restaurant, Fiamma. And hot on its heels, White debuts his sixth Gotham venue, the Butterfly, named after a Wisconsin restaurant where he worked as a youth. The cocktailcentric supper club will showcase the heady creations of master mixologist Eben Freeman (also the restaurant group's beverage director) at a 13-seat bar, backed by a wooden wall cut to resemble open butterfly wings and a shadow-box mirror. Choose from original and midcentury concoctions, like the crème de menthe–based Grasshopper and the brandy old-fashioned. Booze-friendly bar bites also riff on classics, with comforting dishes like bratwurst sliders, a patty melt and ricotta ravioli with pork ragù.
