I'm a culinary student in Greenville. I started out wanting to learn how to "cook" for my family. (I've been known to burn boiled eggs!) We normally eat out at casual sit down places like Applebees or Stax's Omega about twice a month, bill total is usually less than $80 for 3 people. (Mid-late 30's and a 14-yr old girl.) I might have a glass of wine with dinner at home, but we don't drink while we're out.
Now that I'm 1.5 yrs into my schooling, I can make great food at home. But I don't always have the time or energy to do so. I have learned enough to know that there is great food in our area that we are missing because we don't know where to look. So after doing my research on foodie message boards, I decided to ask here:
Just a few FYI's - Friday or Saturday evening dining, Young Adult friendly (very well-behaved), around $100 - $150 for 3. Looking for food more than atmosphere, so hole in the walls welcome. We don't mind driving out for dinner to Anderson or Spartanburg.
