Foodies, take note: The culinary scene in Greenville is exploding. A strong economy, customers craving fresh, local and regional foods and a revitalized downtown are encouraging new restaurants to open and others to reinvigorate their menus, craft beers and hand-selected wines.
Ask for a seat near the window at Jianna, so you can overlook beautiful Falls Park in the heart of Greenville. Chef Michael Kramer, who puts a spin on the restaurant's classic Italian cuisine, participates regularly in culinary events and festivals around the United States. Pasta is made in-house daily, Prosciutto di Parma is sliced to order and extruded noodles with unique shapes, like Tonnarelli, are available. Don't-miss seafood options include fresh-shucked oysters and tender, chargrilled octopus served with potato, guanciale (a type of cured Italian pork), pistachio and sherry-lemon vinaigrette. Sit inside or out to order drinks from the signature 40-foot bar.
