It is with bittersweet and very mixed emotions that Brian and Courtney Luscher announce they are closing The Grape Restaurant on Thursday, Oct. 10. The Luscher’s have operated the Lower Greenville institution since 2007 when they bought it from the original owners after working for them for a number of years. Originally opened in 1972 by Kathy McDaniel and Charlotte Parker, The Grape has garnered numerous awards and accolades while hosting marriage proposals too numerous to count. The restaurant has always been known as a chef’s place with an ever-changing menu.
“As I look toward future endeavors, I am so fortunate to look back on the fantastic journey that The Grape has taken me on over the past 15 or so years,” Chef Brian said. “It was always a kitchen that felt like home to me. And as far as the restaurant goes, well, they just don’t make joints like that anymore. I’ll miss the ol’ gal.”
“We came to the crossroads of our lease renewal and, after all of these years, we decided as a family that we are heading out on a different path and yet another amazing Luscher family adventure,” the chef added.
The owners invite the community in to share one more toast and a hurrah with the whole crew.
