Fig Jam Coming to 12th Midtown

The new 12 th & Midtown district is quickly becoming one of the most anticipated and hottest spots in town. As new businesses, restaurants and properties continue to take up residence at this stellar addition to the Midtown neighborhood, established restaurant Fig Jam will soon call the mixed-use development home. Fig Jam Kitchen & Bar will soon add its classic fare with a modern twist to the growing list of internationally inspired restaurants in the fast-growing mixed-use development district on Atlanta's Midtown Mile.

Fig Jam will relocate from Brookwood Place on Peachtree Street and open early fall 2013 at 12 th & Midtown, a 23-story mixed-use tower consisting of 330 luxury one-and-two-bedroom apartment homes atop more than 20,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. The new Fig Jam space will consist of 2,000 square feet, creating a more intimate and romantic experience for diners than the previous Brookwood location. Fresh, locally sourced and seasonally changing ingredients will be the focus of an approachable, American menu with global influences, with dynamic options to appeal to the Midtown audience.

"We are excited about the new 12 th & Midtown location because we feel our concept fits with the neighborhood, and the area is becoming very metropolitan with great diversity," said Costanzo Astarita, Fig Jam Kitchen & Bar partner. "Fig Jam is a creative and unique dining destination in Atlanta, and we are honored to bring it to 12 th & Midtown," said Shirley Gouffon, senior vice president of Selig Enterprises. "Our dining component showcases international cuisine, and Fig Jam perfectly exemplifies that with a new American menu that is local and authentic, yet internationally inspired."
