The Farmacy restaurant closes at 45th and Spruce; building owners seeking new tenants (updated)

February 12, 2019

After more than five years of operation, The Farmacy, the popular brunch spot at 45th and Spruce, has closed. The restaurant closed at the beginning of the month, and “For Rent” signs have been displayed in the windows since then.

The owners, local chefs Ross Scofield and Danielle Coulter, want to focus on their new restaurant in New Jersey, according to Foobooz

Scofield and Coulter opened The Farmacy in the summer of 2013 as a revamped, farm-to-table concept of the Rx restaurant that had occupied the space until 2011. It’s worth noting that the restaurant was burglarized a few times during these years. One of the most recent attacks happened in October 2018, when burglars shattered a side window on 45th street and broke into the restaurant’s walk-in refrigerator. The front door window has also been broken in the past few months.

The building owners said that they are already interviewing prospective tenants. What business/restaurant do you want to see in that location?

    Why not a good Greek restaurant/grill, with affordable seafood?

    Oddly underrepresented in this neighborhood is a restaurant with either a French or Italian theme.
