What We Offer


The beef, pork and lamb available in The Larder are part of our fully comprehensive, whole animal butchery program. The program focuses on local growers, dry aging, and elevated craft, and supplies both the restaurant and the retail counter.

Handmade Pastas

The Larder showcases an ever-changing selection of house made pastas. This fresh pasta is carefully prepared from Italian-inspired southern French recipes. Tortellini and ravioli are just a few examples of the variety available on a daily basis.

Fresh Bread

The smell of freshly baked rolls wafts from our ovens every day beginning at 5 AM. Crusty baguettes are baked as fresh as possible, two to three times per day, and are available daily in The Larder.

Coffee Service

French tradition is about more than just the food. No meal would be complete without a piping hot espresso or cappuccino to end the night. We proudly partner with Roos Roast here in Ann Arbor for all of our coffee. The freshly roasted beans are also available for purchase in The Larder.


Discover a well-curated beer list featuring dozens of local and European beers. We emphasize the legacy of traditional Belgian breweries such as Chimay, Duvel and Orval.

Terribly French Wine

Rooted in French tradition, wine plays an important role in dining at The Bistro. Travel through Alsace, Bordeaux, and the Rhone Valley while sipping wines suggested by our in-house sommeliers. Their expertise and passion of the terroir helps to create the first class dining experience we provide at The Standard.

What is the Larder?

Historically, the larder was a food storage area nearest the kitchen. Before the use of refrigerators, this room would be kept cool with blocks of ice. Tile walls and fine mesh over window openings kept the space clean and free from flies, important as there could be any number of animal parts hanging from the ceiling aging and curing.

For our modern day use of the term, the Larder refers to our retail area, centered around a full-service butcher shop. While fresh cuts of meat and house-made sausages are the most prominent, the Larder also offers our house-made pastas, ready-to-eat items, and breads. To-go orders will be picked up at the Larder counter.
