Press Release

Dora joins the annals of 'A Mother's Work'. 

This project, conceived by Cara Soulia, (also known for her inspiring work during the COVID-19 isolation phase in The Front Steps Project) is an anthology of interviews with female industry leaders who also juggle motherhood and family life along with demanding careers.

 

As you all know, Dora is a hardworking mother of two, a seasoned marathon runner and co-owner of two restaurants with her husband Gabriel.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our community and patrons for their continuous support during these difficult times.

We will continue doing takeout, delivery and curbside pickup Tuesdays to Saturdays from 12:00 - 8:00 p.m.

 

Patio dine-in service: Tuesdays to Saturdays

Due to social distancing and limited outdoor seating we are able to welcome dine-in guests with reservations only.

Call our main lines: 

(508) 545-1506  OR  (508) 975-4157 between 3:00 and 5:00 p.m.

Reservation times:

We have three options: 4:30, 6:00 and 7:30 p.m. Due to restrictions these are the only times we can take reservations. The restaurant will close at 9:00 p.m.

Our staff members are trained to handle current health protocols and sanitation standards professionally. We are strictly adhering to the governor's mandates and our staff will be wearing protective masks and gloves to keep you and your families as well as our Buttercup family safe. 

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out. This might seem like a lot but please bear with us. We are beyond thrilled to be able to see you all again and we're hopeful that soon everything will be back to normal. 

But for now, the great news is that you get to spend some time in the sun and enjoy some of our delicious fare!

Stay safe!  We'll see you soon!

Buttercup and The Farmhouse Team Up with The Boston Globe to Feed the Medical Community

May 9, 2020

Press Release

 

Buttercup, Natick and its sister restaurant The Farmhouse, located in Needham, are proud to partner with The Boston Globe’s “Serving Our Front Lines” initiative.

In normal times, it is our responsibility as hosts to provide our guests with memorable experiences. Nowadays during these unprecedented times when the medical community have answered to the call of service, it is an honor for us to provide them with comfort and nourishment.

That is why Dora Tavel-Sanchez Luz, Buttercup’s chef and owner wanted to express her gratitude, by providing those in the healthcare trenches with a nutritious and at the same time, delicious meal. We can’t imagine the strenuous day to day that nurses and physicians are going through, but we can understand that they are doing it for the sake of our society, to protect us and our loved ones, and to keep us safe from this common enemy that has tremendously impacted our lives.  

We would like to take the opportunity to thank you all in the Metro West hospitals and all medical professionals in general. You have chosen selflessness over self-preservation. Your courage fuels our inspiration to continue working hard to rebuild our community.
