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.
