Hello everyone! Our winter break has been FANTASTIC. We’re all feeling very much rejuvenated! During this whole break though, re-opening has been nothing but on our minds! We’re changing things up a bit this year and are very excited! DOORS WILL BE BACK OPEN MAY 24th!

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 very BYOB friendly.  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.
