BRINGING INNOVATIVE FOOD AND DRINK TO DELAWARE, OH SINCE 2008
Tucked along Winter Street in the heart of historic Delaware, Ohio, this restaurant, 1808 American Bistro was established in 2008 and as our name reflects, we have always been committed to embracing the rich traditions and heritage of our community while introducing our customers to innovative and modern cuisine.
Offering superb quality classics with the finest, most local ingredients available is our specialty. American bistro fare with the occasional twists. We know our fan favorites are a mainstay, but we keep our menu fresh with one-of-a-kind, chef-inspired dishes.
Our attention to quality doesn't stop with our cuisine. We toast to good drinks. Handmade cocktails with fresh squeezed ingredients. Wines from around the world and right in our backyard. And, we have the most extensive craft beer list in town - 48 brews on draft. Cheers to that.
We welcome all at our table for dinner or brunch.
Almost every dish from our kitchen is made to order, and we take pride in both our taste and presentation. Our fan favorites are a mainstay, but we keep our menu fresh, seasonally, with one-of-a-kind, chef-inspired dishes.
We believe that every ingredient on each plate is important, and together they help enhance and elevate the dish as a whole. We love to serve our menu items as they were curated, therefore allowing you to experience our chef’s unique palette.
Thank you for your continued patronage as we could not do what we love without the support from this amazing community. Cheers!
We welcome you to join us at our bar.
All of our craft cocktails have a great amount of time and detail put into them - from the ice, to the delicate balance of spirits, to the vessel. Not only that, we make everything for our cocktails here in house - fresh squeezed juices, house made syrups & infusions.
We also boast an impressive wine selection from all over the world and right here in our backyard. All of these wines have been hand selected to expertly pair with our food.
Below, you will find a list of our current cocktails and wine selection, along with our extensive bourbon and whiskey collection.
