Old City’s “Farm-to-Table” Restaurant FARMicia Has Served Its Last Meal
In the last few years the Philly brunch scene has exploded. In some places lines were out the door with expected wait times. One of those flourishing during Philly’s golden brunch years was FARMicia. Opened in late 2004, FARMicia (15 S. 3rd St.) was one of the premiere restaurants in Philadelphia that was blazing the trail for a true farm-to-table experience.
Formed by chef Kevin Klause, Wendy Smith Born and James Barrett, FARMicia quickly became a go-to spot for those seeking that fresh tasting experience. However, it looks like FARMicia has served its last meal and are closing its doors for good. Now we’re not sue what exactly caused them to shutter their doors but with the trend seems to be it was in part due to the Coronavirus pandemic. In a recent Facebook post, the company posted the following message:
“It is with a sad heart and with deepest regrets, that we must inform you that FARMiCiA Restaurant will be permanently closing its doors due to the coronavirus pandemic. We thank you for your constant support and patronage over the last 15 years, it means the world to us. We could not have done anything without the constant love and support from our loyal guests.
Thank you for everything,
The Farmicia Team @ Philadelphia, Pennsylvania”
