Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Farmer’s Table’s menu borrows some best-sellers from sister restaurant Farmer’s Bottega, including Bison Tartare, Pecan Crusted Chicken Sandwich, Kurobuta Pork Chop, and Tiramisu French Toast. Part of the Farmer’s Table expanded menu includes true Italian pizza; the restaurant features a light blue Stefano Ferrara pizza oven imported directly from Naples, to demonstrate their commitment to authentic cooking methods and flavors.

From custom chandeliers and light fixtures, to a 1940 tractor in the bar, the Farmer’s Table décor presents a tasteful arrangement of rough-hewn, vintage details. The private dining area, separated from the rest of the restaurant by a working gate that doubles as a living wall of succulents, features walls that are coated in a blue jean fabric to accentuate the farmer feel. A key touch to the décor is that 80% of all materials used for decorating is reclaimed, aiding to the importance of sustainability and recycling to support the environment. Check out the benches and tables made from old car parts, tires, and vintage suitcases. One entire wall of the restaurant is all retractable glass windows and doors, bathing the entire dining space in natural light.
Celebrating the farm-to-table concept, Farmer’s Table proves that food doesn’t need to be complicated to be good, and the owners will strive to let the natural flavors speak for themselves. “’Honest food done right’ pretty much sums up our mission,” says co-owner Alberto Morreale.
