Sources tell BHB that Henry Street eatery Bread and Butter (nee Le Petit Marche) has served its last dish of “American comfort food”. One report has the operators of Picket Fence in Ditmas Park taking over the operation.
Bread and Butter [46 Henry Street] debuted in January 2010, flipping its name and menu to American comfort food in an apparent effort to capitalize on the Brooklyn trend popularized by Buttermilk Channel in Carroll Gardens. Its former incarnation, Le Petit Marche, had struggled since opening in December 2006.
In December 2009, Le Petit Marche ran into issues with the Department of Health which its owners blamed on “clerical errors”.
