“As we welcome residents to Main and Stone, these commercial tenants will create a truly vibrant mixed-use community,” said Alan McMahon, the project’s development manager. “We’re excited for our future residents and tenants, as well as the surrounding neighborhoods to be able to simply walk downstairs or across the street to grab a bite to eat, visit the salon or do some light grocery shopping.”

Developers released the following information about the new tenants.Two Chefs Café & MarketVeteran Greenville restaurant Two Chefs will serve as Main and Stone’s anchor tenant. Updating its name to Two Chefs Café & Market, the restaurant will expand its scope to offer grab-and-go prepared food options as well as local and regional market items such as seasonal produce and farm fresh eggs and milk. A Greenville establishment for more than 18 years, Two Chefs will leave its current location in the Poinsett building to occupy the 5,000 square-foot space located beneath nearly 300 apartments, which is scheduled to be finalized May 2016.“We’ve had lots of opportunities to go in different spaces, but we sat tight and waited for the right thing to come along,” said Two Chefs owner Judy Balsizer. “From the landscaping to the streetscaping to the location and neighborhood demographic, the Main and Stone project is just done really well.”Megan Diez SalonA local Greenville favorite since 2013, Megan Diez Salon will expand its current River Street location to a 1,854 square-foot space at Main and Stone late summer 2016.

The salon carries exclusively vegan products that are both paraben– and sulphate-free. From busy lunchtime professionals seeking high-quality salon services to clients looking to be pampered for hours, one of the salon’s distinguishing features is its flexible scheduling. New services include a luxury brow bar and a makeup and nail station to accommodate clients seeking a one-stop-shop for salon services. Salon owner Megan Diez chose Main and Stone for its downtown convenience and easy access to parking.“We already feel like we’re part of the growing Main and Stone community,” said Diez. “Our salon welcomes Greenville’s international and growing community, and it will now serve as an onsite luxury amenity for residents.”Ji-RozSeasoned restaurant owner and lifelong Greenville resident John Makkas will open Ji-Roz, an authentic Greek restaurant serving lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch late this summer.
