Justus Drugstore believes real food raised with painstaking care by local small farm producers, prepared lovingly by skilled artisans served in an ambient beautiful space is an experience everyone should enjoy. One of the restaurant's mottos is simply: If we can't make it from scratch, we won't serve it. Plenty, indeed, is made in-house from pickled vegetables to cured meats (including bacon), sausages and pastas. The wine list is extensive, and the menu includes pairing suggestions for curious diners. The cuisine takes care to make use of all parts of farm-sourced ingredients, showcasing a nose-to-tail method with inclusions of pork sweetbreads, chicken livers, and marrow.
