Updates are at the bottom:

First reporting: Heart Woodfire Kitchen is slated to open today at 11 a.m. in the former spot of the Daily Dose, just off of Folly Road at 1622 Highland Avenue.

Heart, helmed by chef Glenn Christiansen who has put in time at Hominy Grill, will offer up "traditional American" fare. The menu is large and features flatbreads, grilled speidie, pasta, sandwiches, rotisserie chickens and a handful of entrees. Unfortunately, the prices have not been listed on the online menu as of yet.

Judging from the announced opening on their Facebook page, Heart Woodfire Kitchen will be doing both lunch and dinner. No word yet on breakfast or brunch options.

The┬áCharleston City Paper´╗┐ has a brief on Heart which you can find here.

Update December 15: Charleston City Paper's Stephanie Barna and her family recently stopped in to Heart Woodfire Kitchen and were pleasantly surprised by both the quality of the menu and the reasonably priced meal.

With both photos and commentary on everything from the decor, the food to the cocktail list, Barna's review is worth checking out.

Update February 8: Robert Moss recently had the pleasure of dining at James Island's unique, locally owned restaurant on Folly Road. Judging from his review, it sounds like Heart is a real gem and is not to be missed.

Moss gives high marks to the rotisserie chicken, grilled "speidie" skewers, pork chili verde, and the vegetable stew.
