Living in Greenville there is no shortage of amazing restaurants that fill the Main Streets and side streets and side side streets. It seems like every time I scroll through Instagram I pick up on a new restaurant coming to my little city. Not that I’m complaining. I love that we’re forerunners in the southern culinary scene and chefs and restaurantpreneurs (is that a word?) are flocking to Greenville for a chance to impress fastidious locals.
But I’ve found the some of the best restaurants aren’t the ones that open with pomp and circumstance and ribbon cuttings, but rather the unassuming, locally sourced gems that provide deep-rooted locals with amazing flavors and a “welcome home” atmosphere. One of those such places is located in the charming (and also unassuming) Village of West Greenville – a place quickly becoming my favorite part of Greenville. Tucked away from the bustling Main Street, the Village is a quaint little microcosm of the city, popular with the thriving art community.
Nestled at the corner of quaint and charming is my favorite restaurant that has ever existed (besides my mom’s house) Golden Brown and Delicious or GB&D for short. It’s a deliberately peaceful foodie paradise where every meal is better than the last.
My meal of choice the other day was the hamburger and french fries. All locally sourced and all sorts of delicious. But if you’re looking for southern favorites with a local flair, the menu won’t disappoint. Chicken and waffles, local pork belly hash, grilled cheese and tomato soup, the occasional noodle night… it’s almost too good to be true.
If you’re looking for an off the beaten path place to eat while stopping through the city, make sure you check out GB&D. It’s a beautiful place. Beautiful for both its personality and its stance on the definition of high quality food. I know I’m going to be a frequenter as long as they let me through the doors!
