Lower Greenville's long-awaited Blind Butcher, the "craft everything" spot from Goodfriend owners Matt Tobin and Josh Yingling, has been open for a few weeks now pouring beer, mixing cocktails and serving nibbles of its menu here and there, but it won't officially launch its full dining service until next Thursday, February 6.
According to a press release, folks can expect "fine-dining quality food in a comfortable and casual pub-like setting." Just about everything will be made in-house by chef Oliver Sitrin, and they do mean everything: Not just cured meats and sausages, but even potato chips, mustards and "some of the cheeses." Other menu highlights include three varieties of the Canadian delicacy poutine, a vegan "hot dog" topped with tofu bacon, and pig ears with orange-fennel aioli — but never fear, there's a category for "Green Things," too, with a few salads including a spinach version with bacon-chicken vinaigrette.
Scope out the full food and drink menus:
The Butcher will be open for dinner service only for the time being, with hours from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. seven days a week; lunch service will be added come spring.
