She's Baack: Lee Farrington Reopens Figa (Sort Of)

Lee Farrington just couldn't stay away from her restaurant. Having closed 2-year-old Figa in late December, she's been tip-toeing back in ever since, first hosting an Art Bar on Feb. 2, then opening for weekends. And the tiny restaurant that famously didn't take reservations is, yup, reservations recommended (required, really) now. This from Figa's Facebook page on Wednesday:

Are you going to eat at the same old place this weekend...yea, don't think so.... Filling up with reservations over here....Come on...lets BOOK IT ALL UP.
Today she announced a new menu with "I'M PRETTY SURE WE HAVE SOMETHING HERE FOR YOU." Take a look.
