Can food be thoughtful? I wondered that because while you know chefs put much thought into their menus, how much of it is based of a mix of intuition, tastes and the atmosphere they are trying to create. Micas tiny menu, smallish space, General air...More

We went here for our anniversary dinner. The food was very good, creative and interesting. I have to say the service needs some work. We felt hurried along throughout the meal, it was clear that they had overbooked the tables and wanted us to leave....More

Returned last night, a year after our first visit. 4 people, everyone had the 6 course $69 chef's menu. The first "amuse Bouche" course included about 4 or 5 really good tastes: an oyster, a pumpkin soup, crab beignets and a couple other things. A...More

Well, we went there last night and I thought it was just outstanding. From the first little extra, the focaccia bread with oil was delicious. Our Eggplant appetizer had such great flavors. It was a top five in my book. I had the lamb special...More

This was my GF and my 2nd visit to Mica. Our 1st visit was so awesome that we selected Mica to celebrate my 53rd birthday. Our appetizers of beet salad and tuna tartar were both beauty on plates. Our entrees of Arctic Char and Roast...More

Nothing disappointed the 3 diners. This small BYO is wonderful from the beet appetizer to the eggplant dish to the liver pate to the roasted chicken. I mean, how can you rave over roasted chicken? We all tasted it and agreed it was perfect. Has...More

Second time at Mica, the first coming when it was under the same management as Blackfish in Conshohocken. At that time, both were fairly comparable - which means terrific. Now, with a new owner, Mica has slipped. We had the tasting menu, which consisted of...More

Small, intimate, BYO with amazing food. The chicken livers were a slice a deliciousness, the crab beignet delicate but packed with lots of flavor, the charcoal roasted eggplant was amazing. Filling, delicate but hardy. Even a carnivore would love it and not miss the meat....More
