A celebrated farm to table restaurant situated close to the Blackfriars Bridge offering seasonal menus, dining, pop-ups & a new brick and mortar pantry/larder attached to the restaurant featuring baking and gourmet food items.
An Authentic Farm-to-Table Experience
The cuisine at Blackfriars Bistro combines precise technique and skill with quality, hand-selected ingredients. The restaurant supports and depends on indie farmers, sustainable fisheries, local artisans and craftspeople for seasonally changing offerings. Owner Emanuela Frongia and chefs Bryan Lavery and Dani Murphy ensure that the cooking and hospitality celebrate the farm-to-table experience, food, drink, and authentic flavours grown in southwestern Ontario.
This neighbourhood restaurant housed in a heritage building (formerly a broom factory), situated in one of London's oldest communities just west of London's downtown core, draws guests from all over the city and beyond. The restaurant's namesake, Blackfriars Bridge, two blocks east, is a stunning, recently refurbished 19th-century wrought iron bridge. From the beginning, Blackfriars staff was committed to doing things with generosity, innovation, and attention to detail. From Lavery's first 4-star review, "Food gets star billing at new Blackfriars," the chefs continue to be consistently celebrated for the cuisine's seasonality and authenticity and innovative approach to the culinary arts. Blackfriars is an authentic farm-to-table experience.
In addition to the dining room, there is a patio at the side of the building for alfresco dining. Blackfriars is renowned for its catering operations. At Blackfriars Bistro & Catering, all the food is prepared with fresh, quality ingredients in-house by a staff of experienced chefs. Say your favourite flavours, and leave the menu design to them. Blackfriars customize menus to reflect your unique requirements. Some of Blackfriars' fans know the restaurant more for its catering expertise as one of London's premier caterers.
