Orlando's first secret restaurant opens (but you didn't hear it from me)

From the same owners/chefs who brought you The Table Orlando, comes their latest restaurant concept—Pharmacy. This 1920s “speakeasy” is now open to the public—if you can find it.

Tyler Brassil, Loren Falsone and Dominick Tardugno have spent more than a year secretly planning this concept that would transport guests back in time to the 1920s Prohibition era. Pharmacy is their take on a modern day speakeasy. From its mysterious unmarked entrance to its celebratory menu of locally sourced ingredients and handcrafted proper cocktails, Pharmacy is a secret place where guests can come and escape to a comfortable/casual atmosphere with moderately priced appetizers, entrees and bar selections.

While the menu selections will change throughout the year, their founding principles remain constant with the use of local, seasonal, organic and most importantly sustainable foods. Some of their recently featured menu items include Clams Arrabbiata, Hudson Valley Foie Gras Torchon, Whole Garlicky Cape Canaveral Rock Shrimp, Roasted Whole Seeley’s Arc Thyme Chicken and a selection of their own Neapolitan Pizzas.

Behind the bar features full liquor, handcrafted proper cocktails, custom blended barrel aged classics, beer, wine, house-made tonics, sodas and fresh herbs, fruit and produce.

Pharmacy is open Monday through Saturday from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. and is located at 8060 Via Dellagio Way in Orlando’s Restaurant Row. Keep it a secret, but if you do tell anyone about it, make sure you don't mention my name!

The menu sounds delicious and I like the concept of the restaurant "secret". Looks like a lot of fun and good food.
