CHARLESTON, SC - January 6, 2010 - A new European style snack bar, Patat Spot Friet & Falafel, is coming to the heart of historic downtown Charleston at 41B George Street and will open their doors on Saturday, January 8 at 11:00 a.m.

Across the street from the famed Sottile Theater and a throw of the basketball to the College of Charleston's Carolina First Arena, Patat Spot Friet & Falafel will feature hand cut Patat Friet, Dutch style potato fries, and handmade Falafel. You can enjoy your falafel in their delicious pita pocket or opt for their “Garden Spot” feature, a 5 foot long salad bar.

The brainchild of Charleston native, Phillis Kalisky Mair and husband, Jeff Mair, Patat Spot Friet & Falafel was a dream they’ve had since their 2003 honeymoon. Kalisky Mair, a College of Charleston graduate and 24 year food and beverage industry veteran, realized the need for a place for people to enjoy the foods she loved as a child, when traveling to Holland with her Dutch mother. “Food is my passion and being a native of Charleston, I couldn’t imagine anything better than offering delicious street food like patat friet and falafel to my hometown.” said Kalisky Mair.

Many of the products will be shipped directly from Holland including real friet sauce, sate sauce, mayonnaise, curry ketchup and garlic sauce. They will also create their own specialty sauces in-house.
