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.

Quinn Hatfield's deft touch in the kitchen shines through on his short but dead-on, market-fresh menu. Appetizers are playful: Fabulously fleshy charred octopus is offset by a citrus-candied orange rind, and an updated croque madame features fresh hamachi, along with proscuitto, quail egg and out-of-this-world brioche. Main courses are uniformly excellent, be it juicy pan-roasted seabass, meaty duck breast that eats like a steak, and luscious, mint-crusted rack of lamb. For desserts, Karen Hatfield outdoes herself with the molten-centered house specialty chocolate peanut butter truffle cake, which is worth every decadent calorie its name promises.

"Extremely beautiful space with fantastic sculptural lighting design, Hatfield's provides an elegant dining experience. First visited a few weeks after it opened and have been back a coupe of times and have not been disappointed. It's quite a distance from where we live but we find it worth the trip. I am a duck lover and my rule is only order it in an excellent restaurant. Hatfield's met the challenge. We all enjoyed our meals and desserts. The service was attentive without being intrusive."

"Joe's serves excellent food in a sophisticated setting. Located on Venice's happening Abbott Kinney Ave, it's the most fine dining oriented resto on a resto heavy street. It's perfect for a romantic dinner a deux or a birthday celebration for ten which was happening when we were there. We've gone many times and will continue to frequent Joe's because it really never disappoints"
