With a name like Parsley & Mint, a restaurant would naturally have an earth-friendly menu and a design that includes plenty of green, right? Such is the case with a fast-casual Mediterranean restaurant that just opened in Greenville, S.C.
Owner Paul Ryll’s vision for Parsley & Mint’s menu focuses on sustainable and locally sourced ingredients. The restaurant offers dine-in options as well as takeout, delivery and catering. As part of Parsley & Mint’s other forms of service, customers can choose from a selection of retail items including house-made spice blends, hummus and salad dressings. The downtown location offers indoor and outdoor seating, a dedicated space for touchless order pick-up, and custom decor elements including a living plant wall. It also features fresh juices from local partner Southern Pressed Juicery.
A second Parsley & Mint location is set to open in July at University Square shopping center near Furman University, also in Greenville, S.C.
Parsley & Mint’s color palette includes plenty of cool blues offset by warm earth tones throughout. Seating options include four tops as well as individual seats at a counter that looks out on to the street.
The restaurant’s design also includes an illuminated piece that encourages guests to “eat interesting,” undoubtedly looking to encourage customers to explore the Mediterranean-themed menu that includes such items as citrus chicken, house-made falafel, and lamb meatballs as well as house-made dressings and spreads including baba ghanoush, spicy harissa and sumac dijonnaise.
Given the name includes two green herbs, Parsley & Mint uses a similarly colored wall filled with plants to provide some visual contrast for guests.
