The day is (almost) here: Highly anticipated Boulevardier sibling Rapscallion hits Lowest Greenville on Tuesday night, completing the new-construction restaurant trifecta next to chocolate-covered-everything emporium Trader Joe's.
Partners Brooks and Bradley Anderson — who also own popular Henderson Avenue wine bar Veritas — and Nathan Tate are quick to point out that this isn't a traditional Southern restaurant, but there's certainly plenty of down-South influence on the menu: Nashville-style hot chicken, boiled peanut hummus, and cornmeal-fried catfish share space with a dry-aged ribeye carpaccio, ras el hanout-spiced goat kebabs, and Mexican-style seafood cocktail. The stunning bar is presided over by cocktail guru Eddie Eakin, who also serves as general manager; standouts from the drink menu include ice cream floats such as the Fernando, made with rum, horchata ice cream, ginger beer, and cajeta. The wine list also promises 60 bottles under fifty bucks.
Stay tuned for weekend brunch service, at which point those sunny patio tables will surely be in high demand.
