Mica has recently been bought by Yianni Arhontoulis, previously the chef de cuisine at Blackfish. It is now a byob which warrants deep exploration of your wine cellars. My friend Ron and I both enjoyed the 6 course price fix ($69) while our wives went...More

Dined at the new Mica last night. Chef Yanni has a winner on his hands. The tuna carpaccio and crab dumplings were wonderful. For dinner we enjoyed the chicken and lamb. Both were lovely. The new Mica is a little more price friendly and a...More

This is a nice small place, simple decor, right on Germantown Ave. We shared a first course, middle and an entree. Each dish came with new plates and table service. Kale and Brussels sprouts salad and the gnocchi were wonderful. Our flourless chocolate desert was...More

If you are in the northern Philly suburbs, this is a great choice. Truly delicious food, served in a multi-course format, with a terrific wine list (wine pairing available). Every bite was delicious. However, the portions are sized for a four course meal, and so...More

Mica continues to be our "go to" special restaurant, because of the sophisticated cuisine, as well as the professional, caring service provided. Each of our dining experiences has been exceptional, and we typically enjoy one dish that ranks in the "best we've ever had" list....More

The restaurant space I small and the tables spaced closely or cozy depending on your company, and what the table next to you is doing. In our case it was great and made the dinning more cozy. The menu has some creative offerings as well...More
