Agricola Eatery offers a refreshing twist to rustic American dining inspired by seasonal flavors that are locally sourced. The 130-seat restaurant showcases a mix of textures and natural wood tones with color accents in the furnishings to provide a comfortable, yet elevated dining experience.

Upon entry, local ingredients are highlighted on a wall display of hand-painted wood plaques. The front seating extends the outdoor patio indoors with clusters of woven basket lights, a wood pergola-inspired ceiling, and chaise-upholstered seating that opens to the sidewalk scene.

The main dining space is more intimate with curved lounge banquettes that tie into the design of the main bar. The agricultural inspiration is brought forward in the wrought iron, galvanized metal finishes, and the burlap-inspired finish in the curved ceiling. The farm-to-table craft lends itself in concept and color palette to the hand-painted murals on the brick walls and artwork display.

The expo kitchen seating and private dining room have exclusive views offering a glimpse of the kitchen experience in action. The private dining room surrounds guests with detailed wood cabinetry for a charming experience.
