Roastbeef's Reviews
 
Farmshop, opened in 2010, is a Restaurant and an Artisanal Market & Bakery located in the historical 1948 Brentwood Country Mart on 26th Street in Santa Monica. <br /><br />Jeff Cerciello's cuisine focuses on seasonal local ingredients. Irene Verbila from the LA Times wrote " Sunday nights at Farmshop are devoted to fried chicken… it's the best...but the bird I'm nominating as one of the 10 Best Meals is Cerciello's organic roasted chicken...golden and crisp, the flesh dense yet moist, each bite was better than the last."<br /><br />In addition to highlighting fresh local produce, Farmshop offers a 300 choice California-centric wine list, a market with curated cheeses, charcuterie, artisanal foods and housewares, all an homage to the many California based farmers, producers and purveyors we are proud to showcase.

"This was the first time we'd been here for dinner - at lunchtime it is essential to book a table, so we were surprised to see so many empty tables in the evening. Service was helpful - our waitress made clear recommendations. The burrata with caviar and maple syrup, with toast, was stunningly good. Then the octopus in squid ink, with roasted potatoes, was equal to it. All done in an unfussy manner, in portions that were not huge, but kind of perfect. We'll be back for dinner in the future, for sure."
