There’s a new style and flavor of dining at Artisans, the re-invented restaurant at the Marriott at One Parkway located on the border separating Greer and Greenville.

Chef William “Billy” Roberts said the southern menu reflects “me on a plate. We have a little white table elegance and infused it with southern and soul food,” Roberts said.

“We made it over with some light food and a lot of it is locally sourced. We make everything from scratch,” Roberts said.

Roberts said the flavors he’s created was easy to teach his staff. “You don’t teach ingredients, you teach techniques,” Roberts said.

Artisans was selected for the name because it reflects traditional methods or made by hand.

The 100-seat restaurant has private dining available for special occasions or groups and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The breakfast fare is similar to all restaurants/hotels under the Marriott banner but the lunch and dinner menu reflect the chefs’ individuality.

Roberts graduated Socastee and Johnson and Wales in Charleston. He worked under chef Charleston Jeff Tuttle for five years and noted James Beard Award winning chefs Thomas Keller, Frank Stitt and Eric Rippert before settling in Greenville under chef Joe Clarke at American Grocery.

Artisans general manager Jason Wronka said the restaurant was re-invented, “To reflect the international market where we are located and we wanted to be part of that.

“The restaurant features new seating arrangements, bold colors and it elevates the facility to meet the culinary talent of the team,” Wronka said.

Wronka worked for JHM Properties before being named to the position.
