A Restaurant to Sync Your Teeth Into
April 9, 2018
Kitchen Sync is a vibrant, made-from-scratch restaurant located on Laurens Road. Unfortunately, the misleading name confuses many, causing them to pass by and never think twice. This gem has many entree choices, from pizza and fries to sandwiches and salads. Their desserts are possibly the best desserts in Greenville, especially their cobbler, which has locally grown fruit, granola saturated with sweet tea, and amazing vanilla ice cream.
The vision of this unique family-oriented restaurant was sketched out in scribbles on napkins. Kevin Feeny and Karin Farrell started the restaurant with the goals of creating a relaxed, neighborhood hangout; which they did indeed. On the outside, Kitchen Sync looks very formal, with a patio on the outside and a sleek, modern design. Walking in, we were warmly greeted by staff and managers alike and seated immediately. Junior Lauren Putman pointed out, “As soon as I walked in, every part of my body relaxed. I was hypnotized by the aromas dancing from the kitchen.” Their upcycled decorations and dim lights create the perfect, laid-back atmosphere.
Along with their relaxed atmosphere and eco-friendliness, all of their ingredients are locally sourced. With just a glance at the menu, we knew exactly what we wanted: a Holly Salad and a Short-Rib Philly Pizza. The Holly Salad consisted of fresh spinach topped with a red wine poppy vinaigrette, cashews, Granny Smith apples, and Parmesan cheese. Warning, this next description may cause mouths to water. The pizza had a thin, slightly crunchy crust with melting cheese only seen in commercials, along with tender braised beef, caramelized onions, soft green bell peppers, and garlic and olive oil on top. Doesn’t that sound amazing?
Not many people have mined this rare gem, so stop by and peruse the menu. Disclaimer: the space is very small, however, their wait times are not long at all. Ask to be seated at the bar if it is too busy, they will still feed you and the bartender is a hoot.
