Restaurant transitioning from casual Italian to American cuisine.
Baroni, a casual Italian style restaurant from the owners of Midtown’s Baraonda and Publik, is closing in Buckhead.
The Italian restaurant replaced Wolf Gang Puck Express inside the Brookwood Place shopping center, located at 1745 Peachtree Street, in late 2010.
Baroni’s last day open will be tonight, Dec. 31, according to Damir Kamber, manager at the Italian restaurant.
In about two weeks, Fig Jam Kitchen Bar, an “American style restaurant with a twist of some international cuisine,” will open in Baroni’s place, Kamber told What Now Atlanta in a telephone interview Saturday.
“The owners wanted to do something different in the space,” Kamber said. “Baroni wasn’t doing it for them.”
Fig Jam’s interior will have an “industrial feel” and will offer live entertainment.
Although the menu was not up for discussion, Kamber said it will include “small, medium and large plates.”
Whatever that means.
