Am I the only one that thinks on-street parking on 5th between Washington and Reade is ridiculous? The road is already too narrow to throw in arbitrary two or three parking spaces here and there. I'd much rather see just two distinct lanes and an alternating turning lane. Also, has anyone heard of when (or if) Greenville Blvd is going to expand to 6 lanes?

There are definitely plans. IIRC, from Memorial to 10th St. Now when or even IF this occurs is another story.

New info in the Hot Dish today:

Quote:
Le Bendicion, a casual eatery and bakery serving house-made Central American snack fare and Mexican specialties, has opened at 220 Cotanche St. in downtown Greenville. It’s in a building that has housed several restaurants including Andy’s.

Owner Alex Duran, a native of El Salvador, said the restaurant’s name means “The Blessing.” It’s open for breakfast and lunch.


The house specialty is a traditional Salvadoran sandwich called pupusa (pronounced poo-POO-sa). Duran described it as a corn tortilla filled with chicharron — ground fried pork mixed with spices — and cheese with loroco, the flowers of an edible herb. The stuffed sandwiches are cooked on a griddle. Vegetarian versions featuring cheese and loroco, cheese and beans, or just cheese are available. The daily special is a pupusa and a beverage for $5.

Other Central American lunch fare includes tamales filled with chicken, beef or a pickled cabbage and carrot slaw called curito ($6.99-$7.99); Bistec Encebollado — beef steak with onions served with black beans and rice — for $7.99; and baked chicken, beans and rice, and brine salad for $6.99.

Mexican fare including chicken fajitas, beef quesadillas and pork burritos also is available, from $6.99-$7.99.

A variety of breakfasts are offered ranging in price from $4.89-$5.99. The American version includes an omelet (choose from such fillings as ham, Italian sausage, bacon, Spanish sausage, cheese, green peppers, cilantro, onion and tomato) with hash browns, toast and hot cakes; and the Professional Breakfast has eggs, ham, hash browns and French toast. Mexican breakfasts include Huevos a la Mexicana with eggs, rice, beans and special sauce; and Mexicano Classico featuring sausage with eggs, rice and beans. Central American breakfasts include Campeche Breakfast with a corn tamale topped with cream and cheese with refried beans; and the Salvadoran breakfast featuring authentic Salvadoran sausage.

Baked bananas and rice pudding also are available, along with baked goods including cakelike Salvadoran bread. Duran said he plans to expand the bakery’s offerings in the coming months.

Hours are 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Mondays-Saturdays.

Dairy Queen

Work is progressing on Greenville’s Dairy Queen, which will be located on 10th Street across from Cook Out. Owner is Daniel Wu.

Assistant manager Christopher Delaney said the restaurant is projected to open in early August.

The restaurant will hire 80 employees.

I hate to say it, but that restaurant ^ is destine to fail. That building needs to be torn down.

Also - The Campus Corner Men's Store has opened, the first store in the new Super Block. Nice to see a normal clothing retailer in the Uptown area besides the Catalog Connection.

There is a new commercial building going up behind the Dollar General and Wilco Hess on Stantonsburg Rd. This is one of the new Walmart Neighborhood Markets that will be built in Greenville. The property was recently purchased by Walmart for $1.577 million.
