FIG is a reasonably large one room restaurant with an additional bar space.  It did have one large table in the bar area and bar seating for walk-ins.  The dining room has one wall lined with banquette seating and a couple booths in back but the rest is composed of nice sized tables that are well spaced. The lighting is low and linens are nice but the napkins a bit small to stay well on the lap. It was packed when we got there for dinner but by 10:00 the crowd had pretty much moved on.  They have remodeled since we were there a few years ago including new light fixtures and art. The chef is Jason Stanhope who won the 2015 James Beard Foundation Award as Best Chef in the Southeast.   Continue reading
