The Early Word on Newcomer Stella’s

What the internet has to say

Restaurant owner Steven Niketas shut down new American concept The Westendorff in October of last year to transition the address to a Charleston version of the family Greek concept Stella’s. The newcomer is a partnership between Niketas and friends Johnny and Katrina Giavos, who have ran the original Stella’s with chef Stella Dikos. According to the wave of early adapters this week, the gamble to go Greek is winning over fans on the peninsula.

Comments on Instagram and Yelp range from “So excited for Charleston, SC to have one of my favorite restaurants.” to “The best #octopus I ever did have, thanks to @stellas downtown #charleston.” to “This is the most authentic Greek food I've ever had outside of yiayia's kitchen!”

Check out all the food porn from Instagram here. If you’ve checked out the new 114 Saint Philip St. restaurant, let us know what you think in the comments.

A little bit of Greece came to Charleston and my ❤️ is happy.
