Business Beat: FIGA in February! 2/2 Art Bar Starts at 4 pm til Close

FIGA restaurant will be returning to its rightful place on the Hill starting in Feburary; even if it’s only on a limited basis.  Lee Farrington, chef/owner, announced this good news in a press release today.

The small and charming restaurant closed at the end of December 2012 following a 2-year run.  Because her business plan as implemented at FIGA (a Brazilian good luck charm) wasn’t working out as she’d hoped, she decided to shut down and regroup – which she has done.

The first event is to be held on February 2, 2013. It’s an Art Bar in time for those looking for art for Valentine’s Day or every day.  There’s a cash bar, DJ, lite bites available and some amazing local artists showcasing their talents.  Starts at 4 pm til Close.

Starting on Friday, February 8th, FIGA will be cooking again!  This will be a weekend only series.  Friday and Saturday nights. And it will be reservations only.  Please call 207 – 518.9400 to reserve your night at FIGA.
