UP on the Roof, the roof-top restaurant on the eighth floor of Embassy Suites Downtown that opened this month, is now open daily at 11 a.m. for lunch service.

The same small-plate menu will be served continuously all day until close at midnight, seven days a week. Chef Greg Omick’s menu highlighting local ingredients is inspired by Southern comfort food and his years living in Hawaii, making his menu unique in the Greenville market.

The rooftop bar features nearly 360-degree views of the city, indoor and outdoor seating, fire pits and signature bottled cocktails freshly made onsite every 48 hours.

Dishes featured below are grilled artichokes (meyer lemon, dipping sauce) $6; roasted beets (Split Creek goat cheese, orange, mint, hazelnuts, lemon-ginger vinaigrette) $6.50; grilled octopus (tempura fingerling potatoes, Carolina smoked sausage, black olive caramel, salsa verde) $15; duck ‘n’ waffles (fried confit duck thigh, duck egg, five-spice maple syrup) $14; and miso-glazed butterfish (heirloom carrots, soy-glaze, tomato relish) $16.50.
