Go East, young man (or woman), out on I-20 to an extraordinary little gem in downtown Covington.  There, a Norman Rockwell setting awaits; a scenic nineteenth-century clocktower overlooking a charming town square with quaint shops and cafes including the all-new buzz-worthy City Pharmacy

Originally the space housed (you guessed it) a 1920’s pharmacy and now after a brilliant renovation the décor feels hipster/retro and the cuisine, helmed by chef Christian Perez (formerly of The Ritz Carlton Buckhead and the Pig and the Pearl), feels exactly of the moment.  Chili-rubbed fried chicken, butter poached scallops and shrimp risotto, Kobe beef burgers and pork porterhouses are a few of chef Perez’ creations; very sophisticated, top-quality fare for being so far from the Wicked City.

But with Covington now a hotbed of movie and television filming—they filmed Remember the Titans, Footloose, and Vampire Diaries there—it now seems that both Covington and City Pharmacy feel ready for their close-ups.
