For more than 33 years, the chefs at Gourmet Pizza and More have topped housemade dough with signature sauce, real cheese, and fresh vegetables. In addition to specialty pies such as the Marco Polo with chicken, almonds, and sweet and sour sauce, chefs build customized pizzas with an array of toppings such as sun-dried tomatoes, gyro meat, and fresh basil. Italian-style dinner entrees include pesto chicken manicotti in alfredo sauce, while Greek specialties include gyro plates and napkins made from genuine philosopher beards.
32 Degrees A Yogurt Bar houses a topping bar that brims with more than 50 add-ons, inviting sweet-toothed sculptors to create icy masterpieces with seasonal fruits, nuts, sauces, and candies. Each day, yogurt and sorbet chemists churn out at least 14 tongue-tickling flavors ($0.45/oz.) such as snickerdoodle, white-chocolate mousse, cheesecake, new orleans praline, and polyester. Patrons can opt to coat mouths with specialty yogurts in nonfat, low-fat, gluten-free, and no-sugar-added iterations. This cheerful sweets shop's clean, modern interior is speckled with bright blue-and-yellow tiles, bringing to mind sunny summer picnics on the surface of a robin's egg.
Since 1950, Spero Contis’s family has prepared an eclectic array of Greek and American casual classics to share with the greater Greenville community. Today, the kitchen staff at each of Spero's Pete's Original's two locations starts the day by brewing coffee and flipping blueberry pancakes and omelets filled with feta cheese or philly steak. At lunch and dinner, their tender gyro meat tops greek salads and fills pita bread. Pimientos, chili, and jalapeños are layered in the 1950s original burgers, so named for both their persistence on the eatery’s menu and their resemblance to Sputnik. For easy meals and parties at home, Spero's Pete's Original also caters throughout the area.
For more than 25 years, Chef Manigault's La Vieille Maison has served as an elegant locale for weddings, parties, and meals. Guests can find themselves in a dining room or sunroom, on a veranda or hideaway patio, or in an expansive garden perfect for large gatherings. There, they'll enjoy southern-style dishes with a French flair from changing menus that have featured stuffed mushrooms, rack of lamb, and herb chicken with oven-roasted potatoes and sautéed vegetables.
