The Bradford’s menu, curated by Chef Jonathan Kavourakis, serves up a variety of small plates with a few entrée options including the shrimp cocktail, Mediterranean spiced meatballs, and the Bradford burger.

The concept of the menu was for the plates to be shared between guests as the dishes are brought to the table throughout the meal.

The bar menu features an expansive collection of premium spirits, craft cocktails, universal wine offerings, and draft beer. The signature drinks are fun twists on classic cocktails like the ‘Peanut Butter Old Fashioned’, ‘Curious Cucumber’, and ‘Purple Paradise’.
