Coastal Crust Greenville is going to open later this year but in a different location than originally planned.
The wood-fire pizza-truck operation from Charleston previously planned to open its Greenville brick-and-mortar in a renovated bungalow at 1180 Pendleton St., but now it has moved down the street to the redeveloped Mutual Home Store of Greenville storefronts in the Village of West Greenville.
The new space sits two doors down from Pace Jewelers at 1254 Pendleton St. and provides a solution to months of working with the city of Greenville on the build-out and parking difficulties of the bungalow, owner Bryan Lewis says.
He says the original property will take on a different use, first as home base for catering operations, but maybe eventually as a different restaurant.
The new location will have a partially enclosed patio on the front similar to the new Village Grind location in the same stretch of storefronts, but it will have tile flooring, fans, and heaters to create a more distinct outdoor space.
Inside, the wood-burning oven will be the focal point with communal tables in the center and banquette seating along the side.
The small, seasonal menu will include pizzas, entrée salads, handmade pastas, and appetizers. Wine and beer will also be available.
Lewis says the plan is to be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, with brunch offered on Saturdays and Sundays.
