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.
