Say goodbye to shrimp and grits and hello to spanakopita and grilled halloumi, as brunch-heavy restaurant The Westendorff transitions to a Greek restaurant early next year. Owner Steven Niketas sent a press release out this morning detailing the changes for the restaurant at the corner of Radcliffe and St. Philip Streets.

Here are the highlights:

  • The Westendorff will serve its final brunch on October 17. The space will reopen as Stella’s early in 2017.
  • Stella’s is a partnership between Niketas and friends Johnny and Katrina Giavos, who have ran Richmond-based Stella’s with chef Stella Dikos, who opened the first version of the eatery in 1983.
  • “We’re thrilled to bring this concept to the area and answer what I believe is a great need for more dining diversity in the city.”
  • Niketas’ mother Elane Yatrelis Niketas will help guide the transition in the kitchen.
  • The interiors will be slightly tweaked to reflect the new Greek concept.

In a time when so many new, new American restaurants are trying to make it in Charleston, a concept like rustic, family-recipe Greek could really stand out. To see what Stella’s serves in Richmond, check here, and then keep an eye here for all the changes at 114 St. Philip St.
