Welcome to The Elm: A gathering place for people who crave community and culinary adventures. Here, the creative spirit of Bloomington takes shape in new, delicious ways.
Our work is rooted in a single principle: Amazing food, crafted with love, has the power to bring people together. In the kitchen, we are unyielding in our pursuit of greatness. In the community, we are fierce in our commitment to our friends and neighbors.
Our name honors the Elm Heights neighborhood. A century ago, it was home to a wildly diverse mix of residents, from stonecutters to Nobel Laureates. Today, it remains one of the most eclectic neighborhoods in Bloomington. We will celebrate that tradition by warmly welcoming everyone—our neighbors most of all.
