Midtown Restaurants Coming & Going

Firehouse Subs shuts its doors; Fins sports lounge and seafood grill preparing to open near 12th and Crescent

In Midtown Atlanta, the revolving door of restaurants coming and going continues even on a holiday weekend.

In this case, Firehouse Subs, located at 860 Peachtree Street at the Spire Condominiums, has shuttered its doors. The signage has been removed and the windows are currently covered in brown paper.

And while you might not be able to order up a delicious Hook & Ladder Sub anymore, you could go next door and step inside the two-month old Senor Patron and go for a fajita and margarita.


Not far away at 84 12th Street near Crescent Avenue, Midtown’s latest sports lounge and seafood grill is busy preparing for a fall opening. Fins will feature a 22-foot oak bar and plenty of HD plasma TVs, as well as an outdoor garden patio and lower level ultra lounge.

The new eatery is currently hiring all positions and see here for more information.


Only opened this past spring in south Buckhead in the Brookwood Plaza, Fig Jam Kitchen & Bar will relocate to “before spring of 2013.”

In a press release, Fig Jam representatives announced they are gearing up for the move with a new chef and menu. Fig Jam, which is operated by C+M Gastronomy Group, which also runs and on the Midtown Mile, has appointed Andrew Thoms as chef de cuisine.

Fig Jam’s fully revamped menu showcases American cuisine with touches of global influence thanks to C+M Gastronomy Group owners, who hail from Italy. For more information or reservations, visit www.figjamatlanta.com or call (404) 724-9100.


Finally, as the Atlanta Business Chronicle reported this week, Atlanta's westside looks to be getting a new craft brewery early next year. Monday Night Brewing will be located at 670 Trabert as the 20,000-square-foot space be home to manufacturing equipment, a tasting room and more.

Great. A new seafood place, Fins, one block from... a new seafood place, Lure, one block from Oceanaire, around the corner from RA Sushi, and a block in the other direction from Steamhouse.
