CURRENT UPDATE AS OF 4/6/2018:
Hello everyone! Our official start day for the 2018 season is MAY 17th!!!! Our mission this year is to serve primarily small plates and drinking snacks and offer a more sociable and casual environment.
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.
Hours of Operation
Open 6:00—>9:00—- Thursday, Friday, and Saturday
Offering a complete menu of small plates and snacks to be enjoyed by the beautiful Delaware. We strongly encourage our BYOB policy as our menus offer many drinking snacks and a comfortable and social environment. However, we do offer an array of soft drinks available for those who wish to refrain from alcohol and for persons under the age of 21. We have two outdoor dining areas and a temperature regulated indoor dining room. Please call if you have a party of six or more. Otherwise, no reservations needed.
Please be aware, this is more or less a “sample menu.” We work with the best ingredients we can get our hands on, hence, our menu could be entirely different from one day to the next. Due to the frequency of changing menu items it’s difficult for us to maintain a website menu. To keep up with the most current menu developments and recent updates, we insist following our Instagram Account: @the_platform_restaurant.
You can also call us at 908-996-6040 and we’d be happy to answer any questions.
