Midweek: The Pharmacy and Five Points First Visit
The Holland House folks are getting ready to open their newest venture this fall. The "Pharmacy Burger Parlor & Beer Garden" is located just around the corner from Holland House. It’s a stylish renovation with a huge beer garden space. The Anderson Design Group worked on the retro logo (very cool) and describe the concept on their blog as “Southwestern/German beer garden”. That certainly sounds interesting.

We had our first taste of the new Five Points Pizza in East Nashville. It certainly looks and feels like an East Coast pizza joint. The paper plates and napkins reinforces that feel…although, who knows, it could be a recent opening kind of thing. The pies are perhaps a tad thicker than the typical New York style, but still proudly flat and wide. Good ingredients and well-chosen herbs made for a satisfying result on our first go-round. They have a bunch of beer on tap and a number by the bottle. That combination should prove popular with Five Points partiers. The place is well-staffed and trained, all of which will be critical if the demand is what it seems to be thus far. At 11:15 a.m. this Sunday (just 15 minutes after opening) there were already 15 people putting in orders. No take-out quite yet, although that is apparently in the works. We’ll get back in a few weeks and have a review.
