Farmshop-Larkspur Landing

Had dinner at Farmshop last night. I had never been there before or the one in LA. I absolutely loved the decor and the open kitchen. They have a huge waitstaff and the service was top notch- pouring water while not picking up the glass, cleaning the table between courses, lots of checking in on how we were doing. It made for a special evening. Unfortunately I chose the Jidori chicken for my main course and the brine made it almost inedibly salty. They offered to bring me something else but I chose not to. I had never had Jidori chicken so I was not sure what the flavor profile was. The octopus appetizer was phenomenal though - the waitress suggested the Rustic Bakery bread to sop up the sauce - good call. I had a nice rose and the chocolate budino for dessert which was good. For two the bill was $100. One interesting moment for me was when a child who was dining with two ladies came through the restaurant eating an ice cream cone purchased elsewhere in the shopping center (she was in shorts). She sat with them and proceeded to eat away at her cone while they completed their meal. I was completely appalled - really upset me. I noticed a staff person went over and said something to them but I don't know what it could have been because they stayed quite a bit longer and we're smiling when they left.
