Mica is a restaurant located in Chestnut Hill. Taking the reins from chef Chip Roman, former chef de cuisine Yianni Arhontoulis transforms this compact, “modernist” Chestnut Hill townhouse into a tasting menu–optional BYO that still dials back any “temple-of-gastronomy” mystique; Roman’s taste for seafood remains, and the kitchen works with elevated techniques to create well-conceived plates like roasted eggplant with bonito and basil or salmon with wheat berries – dishes that you probably “wouldn’t touch elsewhere.”
Designated “Philadelphia’s Garden District” and named “one of the top seven urban enclaves in the country” by Forbes, Chestnut Hill is one of the best kept secrets in the Philadelphia Metro Area.
