Local sourcing is a priority at Stella’s Southern Brasserie. The shrimp is wild-caught and much of the produce is organically grown and local when in season. The local grits, rice, and coffee are organic and the bread is made with organic ingredients. The beef is NOT 100% Grass-Fed but the pork comes from pigs that are supplemented with non-GMO grains.
The menu changes daily based on ingredient availability. In general, brunch is served on Sunday’s and dinner is served the remainder of the week. The brunch menu offers your typical breakfast fare with a few sandwiches, soups, and a burger. For dinner, you’ll find a limited selection of steak, chops, shrimp, and fish entrees, as well as salads and starters. Beverages include beer, wine, cider, a few signature cocktails, and espressos.
What I Ordered
We dropped by for Sunday Brunch and ordered a Traditional Breakfast, Brioche French Toast, and a Peach & Oat Muffin. The twice-baked cheddar grits were velvety and savory and quite honestly the best food of the morning. The eggs were a deep yellow and the bacon was thick and full of flavor, but not salty. The Biscuit was off the charts, flaky and delish. Unfortunately, the muffin was dense and dry as was the French Toast.
The service was a bit slow but friendly, especially considering the 1001 questions I asked the staff. The restaurant speaks southern charm, with a bistro feel offering both bar and table seating. A patio provides outdoor seating, weather permitting.
Stella’s Southern Brasserie is a lovely restaurant in Greenville offering some clean food choices with a priority on locally sourced ingredients. Although the food is a bit on the pricey side, I am looking forward to our next visit and sampling the Shrimp & Grits, one of their signature dishes.
