Gather GVL’s newest tenant brings the flavor of Miami to Greenville, SC
Looking for empanadas in Greenville, SC? One of the newest trends in the food world right now is empanadas, and right now it’s easier to find them in Greenville at Myami Bites. Lynda and Tomas Prado left their popular Charleston restaurant to feed the state’s hungry residents. Melanie at Kidding Around is excited to share the details of this couple-run restaurant with readers!
It’s no secret that I spend a lot of time in the Charleston area. It’s my home away from home and one of the reasons the Kidding Around pages get plenty of coverage of this area of South Carolina. I can’t tell you how excited I am to see so many Charleston restaurateurs opening their seats in the Greenville Market.
BUT the news that a Charleston restaurant is coming on has excited me more than anyone else: Myami Bites. The announcement that Chef Tomas Prado and his wife Lynda would be one of the newest tenants at Gather GVL made me cry out in delight. It was definitely one of those “I didn’t even know I wanted this!” Moments. Then the news that not only were they here to open Myami Bites and return to Charleston, but that they were here to stay !!! It was like Christmas again.
If you’ve been to the south end of Florida before you know it’s nowhere else. Miami is such a melting pot of diverse Caribbean and Hispanic cultures that it clearly has its own vibe. It’s something I miss about living in Florida. The opportunity to take yourself to another world with just a short drive through Alligator Alley. Thanks to the Prados, we can all enjoy a little bit of Miami without having to drive for hours. I’m even more excited to have easy access to empanadas again for the Downtown Greenville Salsa at Sunset events!
