Frannie & The Fox

A Holy City Twist. Locally Sourced and Expertly Seasoned.

You don’t have to leave the cobblestone streets of the historic district to find Emeline—home to a wood-fired eatery and café with a bit of Charleston in every bite.

Frannie & The Fox offers a great option for dinner, breakfast or weekend brunch where  you will always find regional ingredients with Italian sensibilities on the menu. Clerks Coffee Co. brings the buzz with their coffee– the perfect pairing with one of their house-made pastries and desserts.


“Executive Chef Tim Morton has done a wonderful job at making each menu item really stand out,” said Adam Jimenez, General Manager of Food & Beverage at Emeline and The Ryder Hotel. “Our Taleggio pizza featuring burnt honey and black pepper is one that many of our guests come back for.”

Using the herbs and spices of the Lowcountry, Emeline also gives their cocktails a Holy City twist. Drop by for a Closing Argument—featuring High Goal Gin, Midori, Génépy, and lime. Or if bourbon is your preferred spirit, go for a Mister Dexter: Virgil Kaine Rip Track Bourbon, Giffard Banane du Brésil, Demerara, lemon, and grapefruit. 

And if you didn’t know, Virgil Kaine Bourbon and High Goal Gin are made right in Charleston.
