Market Square Deli

NOTE: This restaurant is now closed Market Square deli opened in the old Schlotski’s location on Wade Hampton after it declared bankruptcy.  The decor has been updated to old-style New York.  It is also apparent that they are striving for a “family-friendly” atmosphere with game nights and other kid-oriented activities.  It’s a nice update, but … Continue reading Market Square Deli

Sticky Fingers

Tonight we decided to try Sticky Fingers downtown.  I had seen these new restaurants popping up here and in Columbia, and wanted to give them a shot.  Apparently the first one was in Mt. Pleasant, and they have spread from there all over the Southeast, with most of their restaurants here in SC. Atmosphere A … Continue reading Sticky Fingers

Rene’s Fishmarket

NOTE: This restaurant is now closed Rule #1 – Never wait in line more than 30 minutes for any restaurant in Greenville.  There are just too many nice places in town. Rule #2 – Even taking into account the first rule, Valentine’s season is a tricky time to find a place to eat in any … Continue reading Rene’s Fishmarket

Burritos, Burritos, Burritos

Sometimes, Taco Hell just isn’t what you’re after, and you don’t have enough time for sit-down with wait staff whose tenuous command of English only includes the phrase, “hot plate.” So to fill this mid-level fast-food niche, several new chains of pseudo-Mexican have popped up. Here’s a quick rundown of three in our area… Senor … Continue reading Burritos, Burritos, Burritos

A Visit to the Acropolis

Changes in Latitiude

This was supposed to be a review of Latitude, a very nice restaurant on the West End of town.  Instead, it’s a review of The Palms, located in the former Thunderbird Motor Inn, reborn some years ago as the Phoenix Inn. Five of us had reservations for Latitude, but when we arrived, the restaurant had … Continue reading Changes in Latitiude

Coronas

When Laura finally got home from work, she wanted to go to Coronas for Mexican, then go to the … Continue reading Coronas

La Boheme

NOTE: This restaurant is now closed Happy Birthday to Laura! We had a nice birthday meal at La Boheme this evening.  Seated at the table next to ours were Charlotte and Lindsey Smith, retired music faculty from Furman.  I caught myself trying to be on my best behaviour.  Amazing how they can have that effect … Continue reading La Boheme

Bourbon Street Bordello

NOTE: This restaurant is now closed August 28  – I’m sitting outside of the Bourbon Street Bordello. Not in the Big Easy, but in lovely downtown Greenville. It isn’t a real bordello, in the commonly accepted sense of the word, but a New Orleans-themed restaurant that used to be called Betty Pearle’s Bordello. I had … Continue reading Bourbon Street Bordello
