In this weeks episode of #TheStylishSouth I’m talking about my favorite spot for Mexican in Greenville, Local Taco. It is the perfect blend of Tex-Mex meets southern soul food and they use a ton of local ingredients! You can grab a Margarita or house-made sangria and sit on the porch under a string of lights and chat the night away while stuffing for your face with the best dishes around. It’s the perfect blend of a trendy atmosphere with a laid-back vibe and they have huge garage doors that open when it’s nice out. With 8 locations in Alabama, Kentucky, South Carolina and Tennessee I’m obviously not the only one who has taken notice!
If you're looking to grab a bite, a latte or a cocktail in Charleston, SC then look no further than The Park Cafe. Located at 730 Rutledge Avenue this cozy restaurant serves up tasty dishes in a light, airy and exceptionally decorated atmosphere. Using the freshest of local ingredients from Charleston purveyors the food is phenomenal and luckily for all of us, available all day long. Seriously. You can stop in for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner but their coffee bar, short menu and free wifi is available all day long. It's the perfect spot for a girlfriends' brunch, an afternoon catching up on work or a romantic dinner for two. Make sure to try the avocado toast for breakfast, fried egg sandwich at lunch or the grilled shimp and fresh pasta dish of the day for dinner!
If you're in Upstate SC or Western NC and are look for a yummy spot to grab brunch this Saturday, or Sunday, or Monday, or any day that ends in y…. then head on over to Tandem Creperie! I could just end this blog post with the fact that they serve STRAWBERRY NUTELLA WAFFLES but because of my love for coffee, crepes and cuteness I will go on! Tandem is located on Main Street in Travelers Rest, SC which is a uber-cute little town just a hop, skip and a jump away from Greenville.
Circa 1886 is a fine dining restaurant located in the original carriage house of the historic Wentworth Mansion in downtown Charleston, SC. The name derives from the year it was built, 1886, and the character of the structure is still very much in tact. The wood-burning kitchen fireplace, stable doors and original heart-of-pine floors are all original and oozing with charm. One of Charleston's best restaurants, Circa 1886 serves a seasonal menu with a focus on local product, high quality ingredients and Southern flavors. With traditional Lowcountry dishes created by Chef Marc Collins, Circa 1886 is one of those places that you can know every item ordered will exceed your cullinary expectations.
Kitchen 208 Restaurant is an open kitchen establishment from the culinary team at Circa 1886 and the hospitality group Charming Inns that serves up casual dining on King Street in Charleston, SC. It is the sort of restaurant where all of my dreams come true. It’s quick, casual, offers alfresco dinning, serves really fresh items and REALLY great fries plus it’s right in the middle of the best shopping around.
In planning our trip to Napa & Sonoma I reached out to several of my foodie and well-traveled friends for tips on where we should eat.
