Greenville, SC recommendtions?
We'll be mostly downtown. What are some good and not too pricey places to try?
I'm going to be there Sat. meeting someone for lunch and picked Pita House on S. Pleasantburg Dr. near Greenville Tech.
Search this board for Greenville, SC and you'll find some suggestions.
Island Blend (jamaican)
Barleys (pizza is mediocre, but the best in downtown, great beer selection)
Chicora Alley (decent Tex Mex/Carribbean fusion)
Coffee Underground (good coffee, homemade desserts)
Sprouts (salad for lunch)
Oysters on the West End (on Camperdown) - seafood, good bar food
Agree with Lemongrass (on Main) - great Thai food
Soby's (on Main) Southern Cuisine - huge selection of apps/etc - entrees may be "pricey" in your mind depending on where you are coming from, but well worth it.
Cazbah - (McBee Ave) tapas menu, something for every budget
Barleys (on Washington) - love their pizza, though it's not NY style
Paris Cafe and Bakery - (on Main) sandwiches, crepes, pastries
Wild Wings (on Washington) - wings and beer
Sushi Murasaki (on Main) - decent sushi and pretty good selection of entrees
O (on Main) - great food and they do a $35 prix fixe menu (3 courses)
If you are coming from a coast and have had sushi there - I would skip it at Tsunami
Spill the Beans (on Main in the West End) has outstanding lattes and a good selection of ice cream.
Coffee Underground (on Coffee) - good desserts
I believe Brown Street Cafe (on Brown Street) is opening this weekend - jazz bar and tapas menu if you want to be one of the first! =)
I didn't know they had crepes at Paris Bakery! Are they on the regular menu? Are they new? What kind?
I have been so terribly dissappointed by that place. The owners are so pleasant and so French, but the food is just a bitter dissapointment. The bread is bad, the meats are mediocre, the Nicoise salad had canned green beans and very inferior olives. The best thing I have had there was a pate choux dessert creation, and now they tell me they don't make those anymore.
I am so sorry to hear that you have had bad experience with Paris Cafe- I was shocked to read it. As for the nicoise salad- i agree, but i have been there many times and that is the only complaint i have.(aside from an awkward wait staff) dinner is by far their best. I have had the scallops, mussels, steak frites, duck, trout almandine, just to name a few and i have never been disappointed. plus, they have an excellent wine selection. lunch/brunch is a little weak, just a little, in my opinion, but the soups are very good- most of the time the specials are a safe bet. all in all, i really enjoy it and i frequently travel from clemson for dinner at the Paris Cafe.
I've had really good experiences with La Boheme at the corner of Main & Stone Ave. It's a little far from downtown, but worth the trip. Their cuban sandwich is great for lunch, and they always have neat dinner specials. Great desert selection too. They're next door to a music store, so you can browse the tunes when you're done.
