There's a new place to eat on Lower Greenville — well, sort of. Greenville Bar & Grill actually dates back to the 1930's, although it's probably safe to say they weren't serving fried chicken skins and rabbit pot pie back then.
The familiar neon sign has remained a fixture on the block for many years, though the space was actually occupied by an outpost of English pub The Londoner until just recently. Now, Greenville Bar & Grill has been resurrected by a new owner as well as a new chef: Richard Sipovic, who did a recent stint just up the street at The Libertine, officially debuted his menu last week.
Sipovic's menu has a definite Southern feel to it, with dishes like deviled eggs, mac and cheese with Benton's ham, shrimp and green chile-cheddar grits, and the aforementioned jalapeno-glazed fried chicken skins and rabbit pot pie. There's also a crispy pig ear and jowl salad with arugula and housemade ricotta, and roasted cauliflower served with sweet-and-spicy tomato jam. The full bar remains a fixture, of course - with emphasis placed on local craft beer - as does the rooftop patio.
Greenville Bar & Grill is open daily from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.; weekend brunch is offered Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (Pro tip: In addition to the valet, there's also parking available behind the building.) Scope out the menu below:
