The funky location, all those angular interior lines, the ever changing menu, the willingness to try just about anything… Alex George is the tour de force behind Carol’s Ice Cream, the GB & D food truck, and GB&D restaurant, perhaps the most compelling restaurant in Greenville, SC. For all their success at GB&D, maintaining their unique ethos comes with a price. How did he get to this point in his journey? What keeps him up at night? What are his plans for 2019?
