A multiple-winner of Open Table's "Best Overall Restaurant" in South Carolina, Solstice Kitchen & Wine Bar is the partner restaurant of Mr. Friendlys New Southern Cafe and Cellar on Greene. Owner/Executive Chef, Ricky Mollohan, teams up with Chef Alan Boyle to create weekly menus that change to emphasize the seasonal meaning of "Solstice". All menus utilize interpretations of dishes ranging from classic American & French, to Mediterranean & Japanese. <br /><br />Join them for lunch to enjoy such classics as Shrimp-n-Grits, Pan Seared Salmon Cakes and a Fried Green Tomato-Pimento Cheese Burger. Customer favorites at dinner include the Tourched Raw Angus Beef Tataki, Crispy Pork Shoulder Confit, Smoked Gouda-Applewood Bacon Mac-n-Cheese and varying selections of Prime Beef, freshly caught Seafood, locally-farmed produce and housemade desserts. Solstice also offers one of SC's best Wine Lists with over 400 selections, as well as, an innovative cocktail list.<br />

The Iberian Pig offers a new concept to diners looking for something out of the ordinary. Combining the tastes of Spain, with a fresh, eclectic, American social atmosphere. The focus of the menu is on traditional cured meats and Spanish cheeses, tapas, salads, cocas (flatbreads), and main plates. There is also a major emphasis on the beverage side with a phenomenal wine list comprised of selections from Spain, Chile, and Argentina. And last but not least, the bar at The Iberian Pig is aimed to bring back the lost art of building classic cocktails, and celebrating the unsung bartender as an artisan of sorts. Ranging from faithful classics to signature cocktails of culinary inspirations, each drink is crafted skillfully, and with great passion.<br /><br />We look forward to serving you.

"Food ok, too loud ambiance, and had to use the i-phone light to read menu; prefer smaller tapas, and order more items"
