More than a year after leasing a location just north of The Ordinary, Felix has begun serving French-inspired cocktails and small plates.

The son of Michigan restaurateurs, owner Felix Landrum earlier this year told The Post and Courier that he was eager to introduce downtown Charleston to food trends currently sweeping Paris’ dining scene. "A lot of the youth are gravitating away from meat and potatoes," he explained.

Still, Landrum prior to opening anticipated making room on the menu for steak frites and coq au vin. Elizabeth Schultenover, who's previously worked at Cucina 24 and Knife & Fork in western North Carolina, will serve as executive chef.

For more information on Felix, 550 King St., visit felixchs.com or call 843-203-6297. The restaurant opens daily at 4 p.m.
