Since Fig Jam opened, I became interested in trying out the restaurant. And, after winning a gift certificate at Taste of Atlanta‘s silent auction (benefiting Cooking Matters, an amazing organization), I decided it was time for a visit with Corey right before the new year.
When we walked into the restaurant, it was dimly lit with a few couples dispersed throughout. We were warmly greeted and sent to a table. Since we were ravenous, we decided to jump in with a couple of appetizers: confit chicken wings and pimento cheese fritters.

Overall, we thought the food was good, the service was great and the ambiance was relaxing at Fig Jam.

- No valet parking (woo!). Complimentary parking is available in the back of the restaurant.
