Lost Restaurants of Greenville 

Presented by Mr. John Nolan 

Local historian, John Nolan, explores the great culinary history of Greenville, South Carolina. While today’s visitors and locals enjoy a diverse and acclaimed culinary landscape, Lost Restaurants of Greenville tells a story of the past, and how it shaped the present. Some will remember recent favorites like the American Grocery Restaurant, which helped pioneer the farm-to-table movement. Others will remember longtime favorites like Carpenter Bros. Drug Store, Charlie’s Steak House, and Gene’s Restaurant that were around for three or four generations. Few in the second half of the twentieth century might have dined at one of Vince Perone’s restaurants for some special occasion. Author and tour guide John Nolan recalls the fond memories of the owners and their cuisines, with recipes included.
