42 North’s menu complements our hand-crafted beer and harvests the community’s assets to enhance the dishes. Husband and wife team, Nathan & Chelsea, manage all aspects of 42 North food offerings and put an emphasis on local ingredients to support 42 North’s dedication to sustainability. What isn’t created in-house is collaborated with Elm Street Bakery, First Light Creamery, Barrel & Brine, Breadhive and various farms in Western New York. The menu will change depending on what’s in season and thriving at the farms, so be sure to check in monthly to taste the farm-fresh difference for yourself.

Most of 42 North’s food offerings are sharable small plates, so we encourage guests to also visit one of the many great restaurants in East Aurora. And, while there, enjoy your dinner with a 42 North beer on tap.
