Update May 20: What was once a Church’s Chicken on Folly Road is now the spot for a brand new Black Bean Co.

Located at 869 Folly Road, the James Island spot is serving up the usual downtown fare, but has added breakfast options into the mix.

The Charleston City Paper has a brief on the opening; read it here.

Update February 9: Since the grand opening back in September, there hasn't been much said about Black Bean Co. -- until now.

The Charleston City Paper chatted up owner Ellis Grossman about his inspiration for the menu, reviews a handful of wraps, and touches briefly on Grossman's James Island expansion plans.

Read on.
