#YeahTHATAgenda: Travelers Rest's New Vietnamese Restaurant, Greenville's New Federal Courthouse, Toy R Us Returns, The $600 Chocolate Bar, Space Junk

Feb 15, 2019 10:35AM ● By Chris Haire
New Restaurant Alert: Travelers Rest will soon be home to a Vietnamese restaurant specializing in Vietnamese coffee and pastries called TruBroth.

As the name suggests, broth--in this case, beef bone broth--will be a star attraction at the 36-A South Main St. restaurant. The broth is similar to pho--the restaurant uses a different cooking process--and will be served with either rice or macaroni noodles. TruBroth will use grass-feeding and grass-finishing beef from mostly local farms.

The TR  eatery will also serve steamed buns, pate chau, and some traditional Vietnamese food. Would-be diners can expect a more detailed menu soon.

TruBroth is set to open March 2. 

Construction on New Downtown Greenville Federal Courthouse to Begin in April: The U.S. General Services Administration has released a rendering of the new Federal Courthouse in downtown Greenville and has announced a construction start date of April. 

The new courthouse will occupy the parking lots at the intersections of Coffee, Spring, and E. North streets. A popular parking destination for weekend visitors to Main Street, the lot is currently home to a Wells Fargo bank and is directly across the street from the Greenville County Courthouse.
