Small Plates with Ariel Turner


Comin’ in hot

Moe’s Original Bar B Que in the nearly complete Westone development at 109 W. Stone Ave. is open as of July 16. Gimme all the sauce, please, and the smoked meats. I’ll also take all the scratch-made sides. The North Main area continues to hit the jackpot with great family-friendly hang spots. Just wait until Liability Brewing Co. and the two Coffee Underground concepts open next door — it’ll be tricky to nab a parking spot anywhere in the vicinity.

Better latte than never

The new Village Grind coffee shop located directly across the street from its former cozy spot at 1263 Pendleton St. is aiming for an Aug. 3 opening, and the stunningly decorated interior will be worth the wait. Owner Lindsey Montgomery has spent months carefully curating lighting, furniture, wall-hangings, and the like to create a more mature identity for the coffee shop she opened three years ago. Her brother, chef Alex George of neighboring GB&D, will now expand his business into the old space.

Meat in the middle

A new butcher named Revival Butchery has rather quietly opened in the Village of West Greenville at 1286 Pendleton St. in the same space as Naked Pasta, and has quite a wide variety of sausages already available. For example, there’s the typical bratwurst, chorizo, and spicy Italian, and also boudin blanc, Thai fried garlic, and two vegan varieties in the list of nearly two dozen.
