In between marveling at street chalk artists, ceramicists, musical acts galore, and dozens of tents full of every imaginable artistic medium, you’re going to get hungry (and thirsty).
Here’s a run-down of restaurants presenting their masterpieces in the Culinary Arts Café on East Broad Street, just off of Main Street.
Newbies to Artisphere include Mexican joint Cantina 76 with smoked pork, roasted chicken, and barbecue brisket tacos, and The American Burger Company with Firecracker Sliders, chili cheese dogs, and Lug Nuts, their signature doughnut holes.
The Greenville County School District Career Centers’ Culinary Program will also be making its Culinary Arts Café debut. The Donaldson Career Center and Golden Strip Career Center are teaming up to serve festive treats like street corn and bacon caramel popcorn.
Larkin’s on the River, Barley’s, Babaziki Mediterranean Grill, MiMi’s Steakhouse of Japan, and The Trappe Door (last year’s Best in Show winner) will be back with an eclectic mix of festival fare.
In Kidsphere, Funneldelicious will be serving up whimsical treats, while Friday night during the After Hours Concert Series, the Chuck Truck will be slinging its gourmet burgers and sides.
To complement your lunch and dinner selections, stop by Peace Center Plaza for a tasting at the SunTrust Wine & Craft Beer Experience (open Friday and Saturday 1–6 p.m. and Sunday 1–5 p.m.). A $10 tasting card is good for five tastes of wine or craft beer, or both.
