Elias Khalil

Owner and General Manager, La Feria – Spanish Tapas Restaurant

Elias Khalil is the owner and general manager of La Feria, a Spanish restaurant in Midtown that opened in late October, 2013 as a tribute to Seville, Spain’s annual spring bash – la Feria de abril – which is a week-long party of frolic, food, and fun. Khalil’s enthusiasm and passion for economic growth in Midtown, coupled with his love for Spanish culture and food, guided him in the realization of La Feria.

Prior to this venture into the restaurant world, Khalil worked as an economics and foreign language instructor for more than a decade, and is co-author of the recently published book, “Detroit’s Cass Corridor.” He sits on the board of directors of the Cass Corridor Museum and also works with the Corridors Alliance on the new arena development project.
