Where would chefs from “The Bear” work in Greenville?

We put our heads together and came up with where we think chefs from the popular tv show “The Bear” would work if they lived in Greenville.

If you’re into popular shows, chances are you’ve seen “The Bear” on Hulu. For those that don’t know, “The Bear” follows a chef who takes over his brother’s dive restaurant and then decides to make it a Michelin star-winning spot. We got to thinking… if chefs from “The Bear” worked in Greenville, where would they work? Here’s what we came up with.

Chef Carmen (aka Carmy) | Scoundrel | 18 N. Main St.

Carmie’s fine-dining experience and ability to push the envelope immediately made us think of Scoundrel. He and Chef Joe Cash could collab on some fabulous dishes.

Chef Sydney | Fork and Plough | 1629 E. North St.

Chef Sidney is an innovator, and we think she would love the challenge of a twice-daily menu change like Fork and Plough offers.

Chef Marcus | Better Than Sex | 23-25 College St.

Hear us out on this one. We know Chef Marcus can be a little gruff and hot-headed, but his dessert game is out of this world. We think he could bring some major talent to this dessert spot, and he would have fun with the unique ingredients that Better Than Sex uses.

Chef Bettina (aka Tina) | Comal 864 | Multiple locations

Chef Tina starts off begrudging change, but eventually she realizes she loves to cook and wants to learn. We think her working with Chef Dayna at Comal 864 would be the perfect use of her talents.

Richie | CAMP | 2 E. Broad St.

We know Richie technically isn’t a chef, but he proved his front-of-house skills in season one. We think his mix of personality and professionalism would serve him well at CAMP.

Did we get it right, or are we totally off? Let us know.
