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.

"The open air feeling really sets Farmshop apart. They really nail that rustic farm feel but in a very upscale way. Food here is always delicious and perfectly made, even when doing delicate techniques. They use only the freshest organic ingredients and those shine through in a big way.
I come here for brunch a lot. Not a big fan of the best-seller brioche french toast for my own tastes, but I love all their egg dishes, in particular the coddled eggs with mushrooms. The service is very nurturing and the coffee is wonderful. It's always fun to stroll the FS market after you eat, too, as well as enjoy the rest of the Brentwood country mart."

"We had a large group, so we decided to make a reservation for the T&R Supper with goat, which you have to do at least a week in advance. We were in for such a treat! The service was amazing and the dinner even better. It started with a delicious charred lettuce salad and continued into the main course - a wonderful goat hand-picked just for us and lovingly slow cooked for over 24 hours, along with amazing roasted carrots and cous cous sides. The sauces that came with it were also divine. The wine kept flowing and the service was impeccable - we all had an amazing time and can't wait to go back!"
