Located next to the Hyatt at NOMA Square on North Main Street, Roost has fast become a Greenville favorite. With a cozy, well-stocked bar, functional dinning room and a large patio ideally situated for enjoying the music at Thursdays’ PNG DowntownS0056019 Live and Greenville Heritage Main Street Fridays, Roost is a terrific choice for some casual dinning or drinks with friends.

With a field-to-table approach, the menu is brimming with dishes made from scratch with fresh ingredients – many from the restaurant’s own farm. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily. Breakfasts run from $9 for a Bacon, Egg and Cheese Croissant to $16 for the Breakfast Buffet. For something a little different, try the Challah Bread Pudding French Toast $11 or the Smoked Brisket Skillet with Baked Beans and Grits $13.

At lunch start things off by sharing some Pimento Cheese Fondue $8. For the main event, Roost lists an array of Flatbreads, such as Salami, and Surf and Turf ranging in price from $9 to $12. A Peppered Jalapeno Bacon BLT with a side will set you back $9; a Fried Chicken and Peppered Horseradish sandwich with side is priced at $10. Other main courses cost no more than $12. There are also reasonably priced salads, as well as ala carte sides. Or give the $10 lunch buffet with an assortment of Flatbreads and salads a go. On Fridays a build-your-own pasta bowl joins the buffet and the total cost is $13.99.

S0026015You know you are in the South when the menu refers to the evening meal as “supper.” Although some of the lunchtime dishes show up on the dinner, er, supper menu, all sections are expanded. Items like the Chef’s Butcher Board at $16, and the Big Bowl of Mussels and Clams at $15, join the list of apps. There are six versions of Flatbreads. Vegetarians won’t feel like an afterthought with six entrees focused on their needs: Edamame Dumplings $8, and Ricotta Gnocchi $19, are just a couple of examples. Entrees run the gamut from Harvest Vegetable Curry Bowl $17, to Char Crusted Hangar Steak $28.

Comfortable and offering a wide range of craft beers by tap and in the bottle running from $3.50 to $8.50, the bar is well staffed. There is a full selection of spirits and specialty drinks. Although not as comprehensive as in some other downtown eateries, the wine list certainly covers all the bases. Most bottles are priced between $32 and $45. Most are available by the glass for $8 to $10.

No matter which meal of the day, Roost has it covered.
