When my favorite Vietnamese spot closed (R.I.P. iPho, please come back), I thought nothing would be worthy of filling its space. Alas, a few short weeks later, and Montford Park broke the news that Groucho’s would be opening in that very spot.
Groucho’s hopes to open within the next few months.
If you know, you know. But if you don’t, it’s pretty simple.
Groucho’s opened in Columbia, South Carolina in 1941 and serves cold and hot deli sandwiches, salads piled high with cheese and meats and a delicious dipping sauce called Formula 45 (think Thousand Island/Russian-ish).

The STP Dipper (roast beef and turkey in a sub roll, topped with melted Swiss cheese and bacon bits) or Apollo Dipper (ham and turkey in a sub roll topped with melted Swiss, or try it All Turkey.)
And if I’m really feeling crazy, I’ll grab a Dr. Brown’s Cream Soda and pour it over their perfectly crushed ice.
