Greenville SC Father's Day Weekend
- leanpig May 21, 2008 12:07 PM
Just a little getaway for the weekend with my honey and wondered:
1. Is Brunch at High Cotton on Sunday worth it or is there somewhere else we should try?
2. Is there food near the Hyatt Regency on Friday night. We are going to the Mainstreet Jazz thing and we will just be getting there, so we will need to eat.
3. Saturday we will probably go play trivia at either Indigo Joes, Rileys or Canyon Creek Grill. Any thoughts on any of these? Which is better or are any of them decent?
4. Saturday night we will probably go see Crimes of the Heart at Centrestage. What is close by that is a good food experience?
I love a well organized question!
1. I found brunch at High cotton to be reasonably tasty, but nothing special and oh, so heavy and greasy. I go to Bohemian more than any place for brunch, but honestly it's not great. I hear good things about Mary ..soemthing...look for the thread a ways down from here.
2. Food near Hyatt - how near? very near is Bistro Europa (fair american) Lemongrass (decent Thai) Tsunami and Murasaki are both adequate sushi bars, nothing fancy. Better (and unfortunately more expensive) choices are Wine Cafe and American Grocery...both within walking distance...if it's good weather and you have on comfortable shoes. (maybe 1 mile? 3/4?)
3. Never heard of any of those.
4. I think Centerstage is downtown, no? If that's right, then see response to #2.
Great detail on the questions!
1) High Cotton is ok - setting is above average though. Also likely doing a Sunday Brunch for Father's Day will be Soby's and O (Soby's, southern food, buffet style I think $19 a person and O, american, brunch menu). I'm not sure that MaryBeth's (located on McBee at McBee Station) is open on Sundays...
2) Good suggestions by Danna in that immediate area...everything in downtown is very accessible by foot. Upscale option not mentioned is Brown Street Jazz Club - very good food (on Brown Street). Trio is a very popular Italian spot - always a line - though I don't feel as strongly as most do about it.
3) Indigo Joes - good staff, pretty sterile environment for a sports bar, but good tvs and usually a few people playing trivia at any given time.
4) Good food experience in that area - Devereaux's. One of my favorite restaurants in Gville. Though I would call and ask if Chef Greene will be onsite that night. He is leaving for a summer stint at French Laundry any day now and I'm not sure if the food will withstand his leave.
Well, my step-daughter decided to visit her dad...so there goes the weekend trip out the window. I will save these ideas for later though. Thanks
