While we’re getting up and running, we’re hoping to start opening more Locals 8 locations. We are committed to offering the highest quality food and drink that you’ve come to expect, in a responsible, safe, healthy manner.

Our Story

Butchers & Bakers is the twelfth restaurant venture from the Locals 8 Restaurant Group. Located in The Exchange in Farmington, CT, the restaurant houses twin coal-fired ovens, three full bars, and one of central Connecticut’s largest outdoor patios. The building, like our menu, combines warm elements with a fresh, farmhouse atmosphere. Our inviting space is perfect for sharing small plates with a table of friends or relaxing with a drink or pitcher of Sangria on the patio. For us, it’s about transforming simple, authentic ingredients into unpretentious food with a rustic sensibility. We think great ingredients make great food and we think you’ll agree.

Coal-Fired American Fare

Designed by Executive Chef Luis Vazquez, our menu features made-from-scratch new American fare prepared with fresh, seasonal ingredients, sourced locally whenever possible.

Butchers & Bakers isn’t just our name, it’s who we are. Our team of bakers prepares fresh breads, rolls and pastries each day. Steaks, pork chops, chicken & seafood are all custom butchered in-house by our team. Many other ingredients such as ricotta cheese, sauces, and fennel sausage are also house-made.

The Bar

In the bar, you’ll find hand-crafted cocktail classics like Pisco Sours and Gin Fizzes, and more innovative concoctions like a mezcal-based “Where There’s Smoke”. The Moscow Maid – a rosemary-lemonade cocktail made with Tito’s is available on tap. The beer selection is a combination of easy-drinking local favorites, big-name domestics, and international staples. Our wine list is accessible and well-balanced, and we even have a few on tap!

Grown Locally

We are committing to featuring fresh, flavorful, produce from our area and we source from local partners whenever possible. Our commitment to home-grown ingredients was even integrated into our décor. A wine display case directly off the main stairway was converted into a vertical hydroponic garden that grows herbs for the kitchen.

We miss you all so much! Our business was founded We miss you all so much! Our business was founded on, ‘The simple belief that good food and drink bring people together – and the world needs more connection.’ That’s our core. That’s who we are. Self-isolation is tough for us all.

It’s been ten days since we closed all 14 locations (Plan B’s, Butchers & Bakers, Half Door, Tisane & Catering) for dine-in, takeout, and delivery. We made this difficult decision at a time when limited information was available. For the safety of our staff and you, the public, we chose to shut down completely. Given the information we now know, including the 6 feet social distance guidance, transmission risk, and the lifespan of contagions on various surfaces including plastic, paper, and other surfaces, we feel we have a responsibility to remain closed. We still do not have 100% clarity on best practices to safeguard our staff and communities.

Please know that we are daily monitoring and evaluating the safest way to get our incredible burgers, crave-able pizza, tasty martinis, and a pint of Guinness out to you all. In the meantime, we hope that you are enjoying good beer and bourbon at home. Message/call/email/text us if you need tips on how you can improve your at-home food and drink experience. Some of the incredible DJ’s we work with are broadcasting live on Facebook to keep the beats on. Let’s support them. These are unprecedented times, and now more than ever, we all need connection.

By the way, the Kentucky Derby, one of our favorite days of the year, has been moved from May to September. We hope to celebrate it together with you all.

As the weather improves and we receive more guidance on safe and best practices, we’re also entertaining the idea of some touchless, pop-up drive-through dining experiences to rotate through the area. We’ll keep you posted on this.

We can’t wait to see you all in our restaurants again soon to reconnect, eat, drink, laugh, and share stories together.

Please be safe, be kind, social distance, and sip bourbon!

We need to be safe, stay healthy, and listen to the public health officials and government leaders who will guide us through this,” says Allie J.
