----------------------      

Buttercup is going to be a contemporary American farm-to-table restaurant and bar owned and operated by a husband and wife team. Located in 13 W Central St, Natick, MA. 

 Buttercup will be able to accommodate 100 people inside the cozy, charming restaurant and bar, gorgeous outdoor patio, and private room. Buttercup’s produce will be sourced locally from farmers whom we trust and have worked with for years, some of the vegetables coming from our own, family-run farm with the help of our children! 

 

 The owners, Dora and Gabriel have a combined 50 years of restaurant experience and have been running the highly-praised and award-winning, The Farmhouse, in Needham for five years, satisfying guests and critics alike by maintaining an upscale-casual, fine dining experience.  

Buttercup is a brand new shell, a blank canvas that we need your help to complete. All of the money raised in this campaign will go towards architectural renovations and fulfilling the aesthetic charm we believe will compliment the guest experience. Specifically, we plan to construct antique light fixtures and chandeliers, as well as using restored barn boards to construct an open kitchen, our eating counter and entryway. We chose to use Kickstarter because we want to form a close bond to the community by allowing them the opportunity to be a part of our vision, and contribute to a place that won't just be a restaurant, but all of our restaurant. Once successfully funded, we will begin serving in Spring 2018, and we cannot wait to see you all there!  

We've decided to build our second restaurant because after five years of running The Farmhouse, we feel we have created a successful and well-received restaurant, attracting people from far and wide to enjoy the unique experience we offer. The Farmhouse is established and has an upstanding reputation which instills in us the confidence that we should provide a similar experience to people from further away who may not be able to experience what we have available in Needham. We chose to set up shop in Natick as we're already active members in the community and have noticed that there is a vacancy for a restaurant that offers the wholesome, organic, farm-to-table experience that we offer. Think of Buttercup as The Farmhouse's sibling, the same high standards, fresh produce and homey, sophisticated atmosphere, but with a variety of new dishes, flavors and experiences.

Risks and challenges

We have signed a ten year lease for this space and anticipate raising necessary funds for all of our touches to sculpt buttercup into the local hang in Natick center. We are confident we will deliver a neighborhood gem to all. Through our past experience we know the blood, sweat and tears required to succeed. We invite you to come along on the journey with us. Let's go get it!
