Throw A Bash Or Let The Pros Cater – It's Party Time!

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 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

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 discover an array of hand-crafted cocktails like no other. Whether you’re stopping by for a quick sip of your favorite classic cocktail or indulging in a decadent brunch over bottomless mimosas, we’ll have just the thing to quench your thirst. We believe each sip tells a story; if we had to summarize ours, it would be fresh, delicious house-made ingredients. From simple syrups to fireball whisky, we take great pride in keeping our innovative concoctions in-house. And with a selection of craft beers to match, there’s truly something for everyone to imbibe. So come take a seat and tell us your story as you get a taste of ours; we have no doubt both will be memorable. 

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.
