RX Wilmington

Last night, Mike and I ventured downtown to RX Restaurant to have dinner with our good friends Chad and Amber.  RX is in the former Halls Drugstore on Castle street and there has been plenty of buzz around town about this trendy (dare I say hipster?) hot spot and their eclectic southern fare.  I must say, it absolutely lived up to the hype!

Amber and I chose the seared scallops for an appetizer and the boys were brave and went with the braised pork cheeks (yes, it's actually the cheek!). I'm so ashamed, as a food blogger, to admit it, but those were my very first scallops!  I'm definitely going to have to try making them at home.  The scallops were perfectly seared and had a light yet buttery flavor.  They were served with a squash flan (who thought of squash flan?!) that was the perfect compliment.  I snuck a taste of the pork cheeks as well and I'm so glad I did; they were fork tender, succulent, and rich- almost like a pot roast.  The appetizers were followed by southern fried chicken, flank steak, and we all shared a slice of sweet potato pie to finish the meal.  I will definitely be going back to RX for more glammed-up, down home dinners!
