Foodies find their happy medium at Artisphere
Get your foodie fix at Artisphere presented by TD Bank, May 12-14. This year’s Culinary Arts Café will feature some of Greenville's favorite restaurants – old and new – on E. Broad Street.
New to Artisphere, Cantina 76 will be serving all things tacos.
“Our first six months on One City Plaza have been awesome,” said Craig Wyatt, managing partner, Cantina 76, in a news release. “We are even more excited to be here for spring with all the events happening downtown.”
Also, new to the Artisphere Culinary Arts Café is The American Burger Co. With multiple locations in Charlotte, American Burger Co. expanded its operation to downtown Greenville in the spring of 2013 and has quickly become a local favorite.
The Greenville County School District Career Centers’ Culinary Program will be making its Culinary Arts Café debut. The school district’s four career centers allow students to prepare themselves for a career in the hospitality industry. Students learn everything from basic food prep techniques and food safety to nutritional menu planning and workplace management skills. The Donaldson Career Center and Golden Strip Career Center are teaming up to serve festive treats like street corn and bacon caramel popcorn.
"The students are very excited to participate in Artisphere this year,” said Drew Archer, culinary arts instructor at the Donaldson Career Center, in the release. “The opportunity allows students to showcase their skills. We are so honored that Artisphere was receptive to the idea when we reached out."
If you need a little something to wash down all of the culinary creations, make a pit stop on the Peace Center Plaza and visit the SunTrust Wine and Craft Beer Experience. A $10 tasting card gives you five tastes of wine or craft beer, or both.
