The Old No. 102


The Old No. 102 Tap House on W. Columbia in Downtown Farmington has always been an eye catcher. The old brick building with large front windows and beautiful amber lights really grabs your attention – and the super cool vintage-looking sign tops it all off. I finally got a chance to stop in and check out the menu, and it was everything I hoped it would be.

With a bright and friendly staff, bold colored modern art murals that are somehow also timeless in style, and a laid back decor that’s both rustic and chic, The Old No. 102 makes you feel right at home from the moment you walked through the doors. We were greeted warmly by Bar & Front of House Manager, Jacob Moore, who mixed us up some cocktails to enjoy while we waited for lunch.

The White Peach Sangria was simple and satisfying with a robust flavor and subtle notes of sweet peach. It was great, but my favorite was a toss-up between the Creamy Pina Colada Martini, which was silky, light, sweet, & tropical and the wonderfully refreshing Blackberry Mojito with sweet undertones of wild blackberry and a cool mint kick.

In no time at all the food began to arrive, and thank goodness for that because the aroma was driving us crazy!

First up was the Garlic Knots! Soft, twisted, tasty little garlic treats, served with a house marinara sauce and a parmesan herb butter, the garlic knots were a wonderful little prelude to the Italian feast that awaited us.

The next dish to be brought out was the Toasted Ravioli...wow. Crispy, savory, and scrumptious, the hand-breaded cheese Toasted Ravioli was perfectly seasoned on the outside with a fluffy creamy cheesy inside. Served with a house marinara sauce and paired with a semi-sweet red wine, it was a table favorite!

Before we were finished, Liv, one of our awesome servers, brought us baked pasta. Succulent bacon, tender chunks of juicy chicken, tomato, asiago, and a creamy, delicious roasted garlic alfredo sauce with a medley of savory Italian flavors on al dente farfalle, the Baked Pasta was a big hit and definitely hit the spot.
