Whether you’re stopping by for a hot cup of freshly brewed Metropolitan Bakery coffee (located on-site), or lingering over an afternoon lunch with friends, Farmicia is a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of urban life.
The country-chic interior mixes dark oak floors, exposed brick walls, and elegant wooden tables for a casual, yet polished effect. The menu makes good use of organic and local ingredients for simple, New American fare.
While dinner at Farmicia is merely mediocre, you can’t go wrong with crowd-pleasing breakfast and lunch options, like bacon egg and cheese sandwiches and grilled Angus cheeseburgers. The turkey avocado club, served with a spicy herb mayonnaise on fresh sourdough bread, impresses. Healthier options, like the jumbo lump crab or grilled tuna salads, arrive tossed in homemade dressings atop a bed of crisp romaine.
Can’t choose between breakfast and lunch? Come to Farmicia for Saturday or Sunday brunch and take advantage of both menus. Whether you choose an omelet stuffed with various tender meats and cheeses, or a finely prepared sandwich, you can count on a freshly ground cup of Metropolitan Bakery Coffee to jump-start your lazy weekend senses.

We are young (early 20's) and hungry (for knowledge! music! art! food!) friends living on (or in areas which border) Manhattan. We moved to the city seeking higher education, and an alternative to frat parties and gin buckets. We prefer a bottle of Chianti to a keg, lunches at City Bakery to a dining hall, Joe's to Starbucks, Frankie's Amatriciana to Batali's. Our uniting factor is our love for food.
