Around mid-October, John Nolan of Greenville History Tours is adding a new culinary tour to his lineup of Tours of Greenville, and this weekend, I got a sneak peek. The Tastes of the South tour includes stops at five downtown restaurants and includes more fun facts, food and Southern flavor than you can possibly imagine! For this adventure, I grabbed my (very pregnant) friend Cam. I’m lucky to have buddies who are always up for a good culinary adventure.
First stop: Soby’s New South Cuisine at 207 South Main Street. We made our way down to the wine cellar where a beautiful long wooden table lay waiting for us complete with tall glasses of sweet southern ice tea. I had never been down there before, so it was a really cool treat. Apparently, for larger dinner parties, you can rent the space. Who knew? It’s just good ju-ju to be surrounded by this much expensive wine.
