New Chapter for West Philly’s Rx


The long-time Rx (and for a short time, Rimedio) is poised for a comeback. Ross Scofield, a graduate of the Restaurant School at Walnut Hill and one-time neighbor to Rx will be taking over the space with his his good friend, Danielle Coulter (also a graduate of the Restaurant School). Together they are planning to  reopen the restaurant as Rx The Farmacy.

Scofield, a Salem County New Jersey native has spent his last fifteen years cooking and most recently opened a restaurant in Connecticut, tells us to expect farm fresh foods, locally sourced to be the backbone of Rx The Farmacy’s menu. He refers to his style as “refined rustic.”

Scofield, who has recently returned to Philadelphia was disappointed to see the once bustling corner BYOB vacant and immediately set upon reinvigorating the neighborhood institution.

“Soon” is timeframe for the reopening.

    refined rustic? these farm to table restaurants are tired. Let me guess? Beet salad with goat cheese? Wild boar parpadelle?

      Eh, it beats the mediocre, overpriced Italian BYOB that was there a few months ago.

    If anyone is capable of success in this spot it’s a guy like Ross Scofield. I am really looking forward to see great potential come to fruition. Best of luck to Ross and Danielle!
