UP on the Roof | Greenville Blog Society | June Meet-Up Recap

Up on the Roof has the best views in town alongside some of the most eclectic flavor combinations that you will find. Here's a summary of the food we had the privilege of enjoying.

Brie and Grape Quesadilla
This was a huge surprise to me. I would never have thought to combine these flavors and it be palatable. They were coated with pecan pesto, and sweat pea guacamole. Out of everything I tried this was my favorite dish. I honestly want to make an attempt of this at home. I am a decent enough cook, but I'm not sure I can recreate perfect combination of flavor and texture that the kitchen concocted here. Don't let the weirdness scare you. Embrace the weirdness. It might blow you away like it did to me.

Carolina Pimento Cheese Biscuits
There's a vital piece of information missing in the name of this dish. Not only are these biscuits coated in pimento cheese -- they're topped withsweet peppers, arugula, and blue she-crab. I'm trying to come up with a term for this style. I want to call it southern-fusoin, but not sure what it's technically fused with. I do know, though, that it is finger-licking-good. As a lover of seafood, any time I get to have crab that is THIS good is a treat. 

Humpty Dumpties
These are your standard deviled eggs. Fantastic hors d'oeuvres, nothing too fancy about it, but they're darn tasty.

Garlic Soy Fried Chicken
As a carnivore, this was my main course. I probably had way more than my fair share. I'm not even sorry. Each bite was a sucker punch of flavor. There was a bit of a kick, but not enough to deter those with more sensitive pallets. They're served with a delicious homemade cheese-herb ranch to take whatever edge there may be off. This will most likely be my go-to order next time. 

As we finished up we were treated to yet another fantastic Greenville sunset. Whether you're looking to grab a drink and mingle with your friends and family, or if you're there for the dinner and view, you'll enjoy Up on the Roof immensely. It is an entirely unique experience, with very reasonable prices for the location and atmosphere. It's truly an experience that engages almost all of your senses! 

Be sure to check out the events they have coming up. If can you get there in time the Solar Eclipse party will be a MUST do!
