ATTENTION: Our 2017 season has ended and we are CLOSED for regular service. We will announce any special events to come after the holiday season. A big thanks to everyone who helped make this year so special.
The Platform Cookhouse is a seasonal Pop-Up Restaurant. We’re located at 8 Bridge Street, Frenchtown, NJ (Operated out of the The Bridge Cafe). Our goal is to always try to serve something different, hence, our menus change constantly and always highlight the ingredients that are at their peak. We invite you to dine with us and enjoy a memorable meal and evening alongside the beautiful Delaware River.
For those who are dining with us for their first time; we do not utilize the main “Bridge Cafe” entrance. Please use our riverside entrance alongside the bike path. We are also a BYOB friendly establishment. Reservations are not necessary unless you have a party of 6 or more, or if you’d like to reserve a preferred table.
Full Service Dining
Open 6:00—>9:00—- Thursday, Friday, and Saturday
Offering a complete menu to be enjoyed by the beautiful Delaware. We have two outdoor dining areas and a temperature regulated indoor dining room. Our menu mainly focuses on a lot of small to medium sized dishes as we know people enjoy trying new things and/or sharing. However, we do offer several main course options as well.

Please be aware, this is more or less a “sample menu.” We work with what is fresh and of which is the best quality we can get our hands on. If a dish isn’t available, it’s only because of escalated market prices or an inferior quality of an ingredient that we refuse to use. If we remove a menu item, we simply add a new dish to keep the menu balanced.
