Yeah That Greenville

A Trip To South Carolina with Garden & Gun Magazine
Filed Under > Everyday

 

Recently I had the opportunity to head back to one of my favorite cities, Greenville, with one of my favorite magazines, Garden and Gun. On our agenda; eat, drink, and see my way through the city in two short days.  Which proved to be harder than I had anticipated.

If you’ve never been to Greenville, South Carolina you’re missing out.  Located a short drive from Atlanta; Greenville is a small but mighty city.  Mighty in the sense of activities, culture, shopping, food and drinks.  While Greenville is a place I escape to a few times each year I’m always shocked by how it’s constantly changing and evolving.  I swear I was just there a few months ago and half of the restaurants that I went to this go-round weren’t even there last time.  Case in point, Husk.

I’d been to Husk in Charleston and loved it, so I couldn’t wait to see what spin Husk brought to Greenville. And Husk did not disappoint. Led by James Beard Award-winning Chef Sean Brock, Husk’s Greenville location reinterprets the bounty of the surrounding area, exploring an ingredient-driven cuisine that begins in the rediscovery of heirloom products and redefines what it means to cook and eat in Greenville. The menu was completely unique and true to it’s location and I foresee it having a long life in this highly food-driven city.

I also had an opportunity to hit up other parts of town that I hadn’t seen last time. I spent an entire day in West Greenville where I checked out The Village Grind, Anchorage, GBD, and Kuka.  All three are places I highly recommend next time you’re in town.  At the Village Grind try a Methodical coffee with lavender. At GB&D you must get the flat iron steak and mac and cheese. The entire menu is order worthy at Anchorage. And definitely pick up a few juices at Kuka. I loved the Cocoa Loca and the Green with Envy. 

I also spent some time over in Traveler’s Rest where I devoured crepes for breakfast at Tandem Creperie & Coffeehouse and pizza from Sidewall Pizza for lunch.

Lastly, I spent some quality time downtown taking advantage of the views with drinks at Up On The Roof, and grabbed a great cheese plate, salad and a few bottles of wine at Caviar & Bananas.

All in all, Greenville did not disappoint, as it never does. And I’m already planning a trip back there this summer.  Make sure to check out the story over on Garden & Gun Magazine, and let me know in the comments what you love about Greenville!  Truly, MKR
