Adelaide’s The Apothecary 1878 relaunches
Adelaide wine bar The Apothecary 1878 has debuted a new name and a new menu.
Now known as Apoteca, the venue now sports a slick interior inspired by New York brasseries.
In spite of the revamped interior, owner Paola Coro says the elegant but approachable ethos of the venue remains. “I don’t want it to feel completely different; there will still be elements that are going to be the same,” says Coro. “We still want a connection to our past.”
Head chef Mirco Ruthoff has designed new menus for the bar and main dining area with dishes including grilled ox tongue with sauce gribiche, lamb croquette with red cabbage and walnut and pork tomahawk with spring onion and ginger.
The 30-page drinks list remains with a focus on prohibition-style cocktails.
Apoteca is open seven nights a week from 5pm and dinner from 6pm.
