Should I refill Rx?

Kevin | Nov 25, 2002 10:13 AM

Friday night was a late dinner at Rx, a newer byob in West Philly. A renovated pharmacy, it was pleasant and comfortable inside. Though they seemed to push the organic limit with free range this, wild that, etc, I couldn't quite decipher the type of cuisine (I'm still new to this culinary bit.) Friends had appetizers of frog legs and portabello stuffed w/ crabmeat. Both were just ok- a slight letdown from the menu's build-up. The main course was less-than-stellar as well. It seemed everything was overcooked. Steak was two shades overdone, my wild halibut was burnt on one side, and the duck was kinda tough. We all passed on dessert...

Maybe it was the couple bottles of wine, the good conversation, or the fact that the place wasn't chock full of the pretension you find in Center City... whatever the case, I'd give it another try, pending some other (better) reviews. Anyone been there?
