Start with the Tillamook Cheddar Cheese Spread at Motor Supply Co. Bistro in Columbia. A cheese ball stuffed into a mason jar accompanied by bacon jam and pickled onions with olive-oil drizzled crostini is the perfect starter to pair with a sparkling wine.
Yes, it’s lunch.
And yes, it’s perfectly acceptable to sip wine at noon when you’re dining in a restaurant with a 9-time Wine Spectator award-winning wine list.
wines to try
- Hugel Gentil is a fantastic light & dry floral white wine from Alsace, France that will compliment the salads and fish on the farm-fresh menu
- You can order The Prisoner Wine Co. “Saldo” Red Blend by the glass
- You can order your favorite champagne by the bottle – Moet & Chandon Imperial Extra Dry, GH Mumm Cordon Rouge Brut, Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne, Taittinger, Brut, and Veuve Clicquot Rosé Champagne
- Domaine Chandon Etoile Rosé is a fancy sparkling from California and a bargain compared to the champagne 🥂
The menu changes with the season, so you’re always guaranteed something fresh and wine-friendly. Salads, seafood, grain bowls, sandwiches… you won’t be disappointed with your lunch.
The old warehouse-y vibe on the exterior adds a cool, old-school ambience to the interior. Flooded with natural light and intimate dining nooks, this is a cool spot for a lunch date. Plus, shopping in the gift shop adjacent to the restaurant is better than dessert.
Cheers, y’all! Add Motor Supply Co. Bistro in Columbia to your South Carolina restaurant list.
