Owners to focus efforts on new Buckhead concept.
French American Brasserie (F.A.B.) has closed its Downtown location.
The French restaurant, at 30 Ivan Allen Jr. Boulevard, shuttered Saturday, according to an announcement Sunday on its Facebook page.
"We want all of our loyal fans and patrons to be the first to know that as of last night, we have closed our doors downtown," F.A.B. posted to its Facebook page Sunday.
The owners of F.A.B. are opening a new concept at the Ritz Carlton Residences in Buckhead called F and B Atlanta in the spring of 2012 and plan to "focus all of our attention and efforts on the new location."
F.A.B.'s owners blame the "current economic climate" for shuttering French American Brasserie, according to the Facebook post.
No word on what will replace the French restaurant Downtown.
