The Lazy Goat has been one of my favorite restaurants to visit when I’m in Greenville. Part of the Table 301 restaurant group, they offer a varied Mediterranean inspired menu with numerous large and small plates, all ideal for sharing. Most notably, they have a fantastic patio which overlooks the Reedy River and an oft-used outdoor amphitheater. On a not-too-hot evening, it’s the best dining seat in town.
The food can vary from outstanding (pork belly and beans) to just OK (gnudi), but it’s a fun and reasonably priced place to visit. There are plenty of affordable wine options, including a nice rosé we tried, perfect for this time of year.
Also, if you are in Greenville and like sushi, try out Purple International Bistro & Sushi. The chef/owner Jack and his wife recently moved there from Atlanta, in fact, they still own a home in Alpharetta. Jack is the brother or Art from Sushi House Hayakawa. While the fish selection and overall quality isn’t as impeccable as Art’s, I think Jack’s is the best cut and tasting nigiri I’ve had in Greenville.
