Barrington’s newest restaurant, Farmhouse on North, is getting rave reviews after officially opening for business. Farmhouse serves fresh, homemade food prepared with ingredients sourced from local farms. You’ll find the restaurant in a storied North Avenue property that was originally built in 1883 as Hough Street school. They lovingly restored the space to reflect the farm-to-table menu, which is rustic, sophisticated and hitting the spot among local diners.
So far, guests are LOVING Farmhouse! Here are some of their first reactions on Facebook…

The restaurant, which has been preparing to open for more than a year, is the life-long dream of Meghan McGinty, the Proprietor of Farmhouse on North. Meghan comes from a long line of restaurant entrepreneurs and farmers, and says she feels proud to carry on the legacy of her ancestors.
Meghan hopes the guest experience at Farmhouse on North will be one of memory making. “One of the things about the opening that is so special is sharing it with all the people that mean the most to me. Executive Chef Marcanthony Griffin and General Manager Michael Vaccarello are like family, and have poured themselves into Farmhouse on North.”
“We share a promise to serve the freshest and best quality dishes possible while resourcing as local as possible,” Meghan says. “We put our passion behind every dish and hope you taste it with every bite. We want you to come in and enjoy a meal at our house, Farmhouse on North.”
Farmhouse on North also includes a bar on the top floor which they refer to as “The Hayloft”. And the restaurant offers fresh, house-made catering for special events.
