Dark and Dreary Greenville Bar & Grill is Getting a Much-Needed New Look

The former Londoner will soon be "lighter and brighter."

Hooray for natural light.

Changes are in store for the recently relaunched Greenville Bar & Grill, formerly The Londoner: As CultureMap reported earlier today, the restaurant is currently closed for a facelift; owner Shawn Foley tells Teresa Gubbins he's aiming "to make the space lighter and brighter." The dark and somewhat cavernous space may have made sense for a pub like The Londoner, but for a restaurant, it was less than desirable.

That's the good news. The bad news? Short-lived chef Richard Sipovic parted ways with the restaurant in November; he's the guy that was responsible for some very tasty dishes on the opening menu like fried chicken skins and a killer rabbit pot pie. Foley tells CultureMap Sipovic "left behind a good kitchen team," though, mentioning menu items like fried chicken, meatloaf, shrimp and grits, and "a really good steak for $15." Sounds like there will be more to check out besides just the new interior when GB&G reopens. According to the restaurant's Facebook page, they'll be open in time for the weekend.
