At long last, Lowest Greenville's long-awaited Rapscallion sets an opening date: Tuesday, July 7. The Southern-influenced Boulevardier sibling from partners Brooks and Bradley Anderson and Nathan Tate is the final piece of the puzzle for the new-construction restaurant strip next to Trader Joe's where BBBop and Yucatan Taco Stand recently opened.
Expect a raw bar, dry-aged steaks, and proteins cooked over a custom-built wood rotisserie and a wood-burning grill. Menu highlights include Nashville-style hot fried chicken and a "down South" mezze plate with boiled peanut hummus, pimento cheese, and charcuterie. An exclusively American wine list put together by the Anderson brothers — who of course own Henderson Avenue wine bar Veritas — will include 60 bottles under $50.
Running the kitchen is chef de cuisine Jonathan Peters, who has worked for some big names like Eric Greenspan, Warren Schwartz, and even Gordon Ramsay. Boulevardier cocktail guru Eddie Eakin is serving as both general manager and head bartender. Rapscallion will be open for dinner only in the beginning, with weekend brunch to be added later.
