Pasta restaurant opening downtown location.
Atlanta-based FIGO Pasta is planning to open a new location near Georgia State. The new FIGO will open on Peachtree Street near Broad Street in the lobby level of the recently renovated historic Flatiron Building.
The restaurant replaces Tin Drum Asiacafe, which closed last year. FIGO Pasta joins Moe's Southwest Grill, NaanStop, Subway and Arby's, among others, as casual dining options near GSU's Aderhold Learning Center.
Currently FIGO has six locations in metro Atlanta: West Midtown, Buckhead, Perimeter, Vinings, Decatur and Edgewood/Little 5 Points.
FIGO moved its Westside Provisions District location to Howell Mill Road at the end of 2014. The land their previous location occupied will be home to a giant new Design Within Reach next year.
FIGO has previously closed locations in Virginia Highland and Alpharetta.
Current plans call for the new FIGO to open by mid-summer.
Are you a current GSU student excited about this new option near campus? What is your favorite downtown eatery? Where would you like to see FIGO open next?
