This year, we definitely entertained the idea of staying in--until an event with The Greenville Wine Meetup caught my attention. Apparently, Table 301--a Greenville restaurant company that owns some of the best places in town--is opening a new restaurant. And for $25 per person we would get a New Year's Eve party complete with heavy h'ordeuvres, live music and a champagne toast at midnight. On top of that, we would be the first people in Greenville to see the new restaurant and know its name! Needless to say, we couldn't pass up this opportunity. We bought our tickets and headed out on New Year's Eve for what we hoped would be a memorable night.
Upon arrival at the new restaurant, we immediately received a pamphlet about the new restaurant, which is apparently named Nose Dive. And I have to be honest, we're not too keen on the name. However, everything else about this place seems to be on the up-and-up. To wit:
-The location. Smack dab in the central area of downtown, right next to the Westin Poinsett on South Main. Enough said.
-The food. Now, we only had h'ordeuvres, but if the selection and quality they offered on New Year's Eve foretells what will be on the menu, this is a definite winner. Table 301 is referring to Nose Dive as a "gastropub", and between the gourmet mini-burgers, Reuben sandwiches, duck with a sort of apple confit, and amazing cheese selection they were offering the other night, we absolutely cannot wait to experience the full menu. It's about time Greenville had some true pub fare, especially when that fare is slightly higher-end.
All in all, not only was this a great, different way to spend our New Year's Eve, but it made us all the more excited for this new Table 301 restaurant and as per the usual, was yet another notch in the belt for how much we love Greenville.
