Embracing the beauty of simplicity, Farmer’s Bottega is taking the “farm-to-fork” culinary trend and transforming it into a necessity that’s here to stay. Located in Mission Hills, guests relish in carefully crafted fare where the food is as organic as the vintage, reclaimed décor. Upon entering the intimate eatery, the vintage décor creates a rustic ambiance like that of a real farmhouse. From a treadle sewing machine to a 40-year-old table-top recovered from the ocean, these warm details of Farmer’s Bottega radiate authenticity. The Edison bulbs dimly glowing from iron chandeliers, and the hollowed wine barrels, produce a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
