Double cut grinned pork chop – Charleston SC double corn grits, pork belly collards, fried super sweet onions
We were invited to a media dinner at a nice speakeasy on Sand Lake Road called Pharmacy Orlando, a prohibition-chic haunt with a hidden door featuring craft cocktails, New American plates & pizza.
It took me a few minutes of wandering aimlessly around and asking a few locals where the speakeasy’s hidden entrance was located but I found it and it was totally worth the hunt. Pharmacy Orlando is located on the first floor of a multilevel shopping/business complex, near Regions bank, behind secret elevator doors. The inside is dim with an intimate ambiance and relaxing vibe. The food (“medicine”) was delicious and the staff was knowledgable and attentive.
