In February, Bites reported that chef-entrepreneur Trey Cioccia, a veteran of Cantina Laredo and Capitol Grille, was planning to open a new restaurant, The Farm House, in the ground floor of Encore in the SoBro neighborhood downtown. Today the company announced the opening date in October.

"After careful attention to detail and endless nights in the newly constructed kitchen, Cioccia is ready to open his doors on Thursday, Oct. 7, 2013," the company said in a release. "Cioccia has been involved all steps of the conceptualization and execution process; from tile selection in the kitchen to visiting over 30 local purveyors from which he sourced fresh ingredients."

Yes, as its name would indicate, The Farm House aims to emphasize farm-fresh, locally sourced ingredients. It also touts "a refined bar program featuring high-quality bourbons, house-flavored moonshine, local microbrews and updated takes on Southern staples like the Old Fashioned."

The Farm House, 301 Demonbreun St., plans to serve lunch Tuesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., dinner Monday through Saturday 5 to 10 p.m. and brunch on Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

There's a preliminary menu on the Farm House website. For updates on the opening, you can follow The Farm House on Facebook or @FarmHouseSoBro on Twitter.
