Patterson Restaurant + Bar
Patterson's Venture into the heart of Greenville, and you'll find Patterson's (@pattersonhartness), a gem in the city's culinary scene. Their Patterson Burger, a heavenly concoction of Braveheart Angus Beef, is a symphony of exquisite flavors. Each bite introduces you to creamy roasted garlic aioli, tangy tomato jam, and crispy pork belly. The richness of white cheddar, coupled with the refreshing crunch of butter lettuce, all lovingly enveloped in a soft brioche bun, creates a burger experience like no other. This flavor-packed marvel comes accompanied by a generous side of fries, making for a meal that is both delightful and satiating. Patterson's truly adds another layer of depth to Greenville's vibrant burger scene, bravo to Chef Tanner Marino.
