Birch & Butcher


After walking by Birch & Butcher a million times, I finally decided to detour my route and check it out! Located at Water St. and E. Pleasant St, Birch + Butcher is a modern bistro and butcher shop serving Midwestern cuisine prepared on an open-fire hearth.


When you walk in Birch & Butcher you see a lovely, open floor plan space with an exposed kitchen. I really loved all the natural light and the simplicity to their decor.


Towards the front entrance of the restaurant you'll find the butcher shop and the "casual counter service", which they have open at 7:30am everyday to serve coffee, breakfast and lunch options!


After photographing the restaurant, I decide to sit down and have a cup a coffee and quick lunch. I ordered a wood-fired smoked turkey sandwich, which was delicious! 


In addition to having a great meal, I had a great conversation with one of the owners, Chef Miles. He filled me in on their plans to open an awesome patio in the summertime, and I filled him in on how much I loved my lunch and look forward to coming back to check out their dinner menu. 

If you head to Birch & Butcher for a casual breakfast/lunch or a more upscale dinner, let me know what your experience was like!
