ATTENTION: We will be CLOSED Saturday, July 20th. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Hello Everyone!!!! This coming weekend is Frenchtown’s annual Bastille Day (Saturday, July 13th)!! Don’t miss it! We’ll be sticking to our current menu with a few additional specials coordinating with this fun packed day. See you soon. Bon Appétit.

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 menu is not based on the typical dinner style. It’s more or less a “Happy Hour” menu consisting of mostly small to medium sized plates, burgers/sandwiches, and the occasional large “share” plate.  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. 

Sorry in advance, but we do not offer “Take Out” food. Majority of the food we serve just doesn’t package well. We encourage our guests to sit down, relax, and enjoy a wonderful meal and experience. Thank you for understanding, we look forward to seeing you.
