Coming Soon: Husk Restaurant (Greenville)


The downtown Greenville restaurant expansion continues. A Charleston-based restaurant named Husk will be opening their 3rd location in the West End area of Downtown Greenville.

Husk Restaurant will open its third location (the second is in Nashville) at 722 S. Main St.

James Beard award-winning celebrity chef Sean Brock and David Howard, president of the Neighborhood Dining Group, which includes Husk, are bringing the ingredient-driven Southern cuisine restaurant to Greenville with plans to open this fall.

Brock and Howard said they were attracted to Greenville’s emerging culinary scene. “It’s not quite as mature as Charleston but it’s heading that way and we’d like to be part of that,” said Brock. Howard added that the foot traffic and business climate is “spectacular” and he has visited many times and finds the city “very unique.”

Brock will be responsible for the menu and creative, but a chef de cuisine will be hired for day-to-day operations. Husk is expected to employ approximately 60 people and be open for lunch and dinner.


It’s fantastic to see the West End area of downtown Greenville expand. Looking forward to their opening!

Hey Greer folks! All is well for those of us that reside in the Greer area. Culver’s will be opening on May 16 and they are looking to hire about 75 people to staff the restaurant.

Culver’s has set an opening date and has begun hiring for its Greer Restaurant.

Culver’s, a 4,250-square-foot restaurant, is located at 1040 W. Wade Hampton Blvd., next to Aldi. There will be seating for 108 guests and a drive-through for to-go orders with parking for a runner to deliver the completed orders.


One less reason to journey to Woodruff Road once they open up.

Now Open: Sidewall Pizza (Greenville)


Pizza fans rejoice! Sidewall Pizza is now open!

Sidewall Pizza, a popular Travelers Rest eatery known for its eclectic pizzas and unique homemade ice cream flavors, is having a soft opening this evening [WOT note: this was yesterday] at its new Greenville location.

Andy O’ Mara, who owns Sidewall Pizza along with Loren Frant, said the second location will open slowly, similar to how they opened in Travelers Rest. Hours will be limited and increase as staff gets in place. Eventually the Greenville location will be open for lunch and dinner. For the lunch crowd, O’Mara said they plan to add some sandwich items to their menu.


You can check out their hours on their Facebook page and website.
