I finally tried Sweet Basil Thai on Pelham and 14 a couple of weeks ago and was amazed at how much I liked it. Loved the whole snapper in a sweet/spicy glaze and wish I could have tried the soft shell crab in green curry.
Swamp Rabbit Grocery in west greenville has a few really nice products. Local lettuces are gorgeous, and there will be other random veggies: spinach, brussel sprouts, radishes, etc. It's like a tiny, slice of a real farmer's market, something Greenville hasn't had much of. AND the owner is a fabulous baker. I've had whoopie pie, marble mini-pound cake, and some other sweets that were good, but her baguettes are going on my no-buy list because I can't consume less than the entire thing. Way more flavor than say the Whole Foods baguettes. She posts pics on the FB page and they tempt me greatly.
I've been told that Scratch Meals is closing on Friday.
There's a place on Wade Hampton called Campo Bello that is simple red-sauce italian. I'm not saying it's particularly good, but it's retro and they're friendly and they're opened a lot. I had dinner there on a Sunday evening recently when 95% of g'ville restaurants were closed.
The Owl has now opened on Wade Hampton toward the Community Tap end. I haven't been yet, but I'm awfully eager to hear some reviews if any of you have.
