The pop-up restaurant trend makes it way to Greenville with the three-day operation of Cellar 912 next month.
These short-term restaurants that open in rented space for a matter of days or weeks have gained popularity in larger cities in recent years. They have served as an opportunity for chefs and would-be restaurateurs to try their concepts without making large investments. The tight credit market in the years since the recession has also been a factor, especially for younger entrepreneurs.
Cellar 912 will operate Feb. 13-15 in The Old Cigar Warehouse, an event space in the West End of downtown Greenville owned Tammy Johnson. Johnson’s Liquid Catering will supply fine wines paired with meals by chef Peter Collins of Chef 360. Live jazz entertainment is also planned. More information is available at cellar912.com.
