Food is the Drug
Hillside Farmacy is a farm-to-table restaurant in Austin, TX built around a pharmacy theme. While it may sound odd, it is brilliant in its execution of incredible food and wonderfully eclectic design. The restaurant space was formerly the home of a 1920s pharmacy owned by Austin's first African-American pharmacist. The decor features authentic apothecary items (from a different 1920s drugstore) - a vintage collection of medicine bottles, antique cash registers, tin ceilings, and wooden cabinets. But it's the "F" in the deliberately misspelled Farmacy that nods to the emphasis on simple, fresh food. The restaurant works with local food purveyors and regularly changes the menus around the highest-quality seasonal ingredients. Local cheese, homemade pate, artisinal breads and pastries, raw bar, charcuterie are all available here. Dishes include bangers and eggs, buttermilk bisquits and gravy, and bison tartare. Other perks include an old fashioned soda counter and a shaded outdoor patio. If I were a local here, this would definitely be one of my favorite go-to places. www.hillsidefarmacy.com 1209 E. 11th Street

East Austin Bloody Mary
Weekend brunch is a bit of a ritual at my house, and finding the perfect balance between great food and short lines is always tricky. If you get there early enough to avoid the crowd, Hillside Farmacy serves delicious farm-to-table fare and a mean wasabi bloody mary. Sit outside on the patio by their herb garden and watch the bike riders and other East Austin traffic roll by your table.
