Denver, Colorado-based Chipotle Mexican Grill is opening another metro Atlanta location.
The fast casual burrito joint is planning a new restaurant for the current Fig Jam Kitchen & Bar at Brookwood Place in south Buckhead. Fig Jam is scheduled to close at Brookwood in late April and relocate in the fall to 12th & Midtown alongside fellow south Buckhead transplant Cafe Intermezzo.
The Brookwood Place restaurant space opened as Wolfgang Puck Express in 2003, but closed in 2009. Baroni opened in mid 2010, but by early 2012, it had been re-concepted as Fig Jam Kitchen & Bar. Both Baroni and Fig Jam share the same owners as midtown eateries Publik and Baraonda.
Chipotle has added a number of intown locations over the past few years, most recently opening in Howell Mill Village. That space was at one point earmarked for a Red Mango frozen yogurt shop, but that never opened, and Chipotle swooped in and opened this past fall. The casual Mexican eatery also added a location on Oxford Road in Emory Village in late 2011.
