Foursquare Tips

  • Skip the food-- go for the atmosphere and drinks. Friendly staff too!
  • Try the The Bedford Bloody Mary from our 100 Best list: The kimchi actually belongs in this drink. It adds a pleasant background of earthiness to what otherwise would be just tomato juice and spice.
  • Awesome atmosphere, enjoy the vault!
  • Located in an old bank vault The Bedford is a new "secret" basement. Try the Jacknife Judys (Templeton Rye, Rishi Vanilla Black Tea Reduction, Cynar, Muscat dessert wine, Orange bitters)
  • Get The Bedford Burger stacked with onion marmalade, cheddar, bacon, and garlic aioli, and always pay the extra $3 to have poutine added to your side of fries.
  • Snag a seat by the fire for the perfect date spot!
  • With cream cheese, tomato, bacon, a fried egg and hot sauce, the burger is a beast. The doubly crisp potatoes are tasty enough to take up space needed for a funky, delicious kimchi Bloody Mary.
  • their water is so good. best ever. obviously laced with crack.
  • Former HotChocolate chef Mark Steuer keeps it seasonal with dishes such as braised chicken with greens in a whole-grain mustard broth, and sates late-night appetites with grilled cheese on black bread
  • How about a close-up of the Bedford Bloody [Mary]? {I love close-ups.} 3=D)
  • The Vault is where it's at! You can actually strike up a conversation with those at the end of bench. (You'll understand when you're there.)
  • If you are veg and love lots of flavor, go for the gnocchi... So yummy and loads of veggies!!!
  • The Triple Threat by Bedford Mixologist Justin Anderson: equal parts hum, Fernet, Cynar. Sweet/Tart/Red/Dark/Slinky/Naughty
  • Went with 20 people& had an amazing time. Amazing food & decor. Its an underground 1920's bank with Bank Vault & safe deposit boxes throughout its incredible. Try the mac n cheese& cauliflower
  • The dining space itself feels cavernous, and its really three spaces, the most impressive of which is the former bank vault.
  • Week night live music in the vault, what a pleasant surprise!
  • Ok food, had to send back the baby Octopus
  • The food is delicious.
  • I got the Darker And Stormier. Pretty damn tasty.
  • A++++++++ Would do business again!!!!!!!!!
