Ember- Great gastropub in downtown Greer SC

Leave a comment

I don’t write about dining out very often.   We go out a few times a month, usually to someplace different each time.  Having spent decades in food service it takes quite a restaurant for me to want to go back to it.  I have found a few and last night I added another one to my list.

It is a small new gastropub in downtown Greer.  What is a gastropub?   I think of it as a pub but with more upscale food and affordable priced.   Thursdays is half price wine and dessert, always a good deal.   The most creative items on the menu are the Himalayan salt block cooking.   The 6-by-6-foot block is cut into a blocks about 4 inches thick and 8 -10 inches. It is mined from crystalline pink salt under the Himalayas, is heated to a blazing 700 degrees and brought to the table, where diners have the choice of beef, shrimp, ahi tuna or crab cakes to cook on the block.  Kind of a new age fondue.   The people at our table had shrimp, beef and tuna.   Bob had the smoked chicken and grits and it was fantastic.   We sampled three different appetizers and all were good.
