Over the past few months, rumors have been swirling about downtown’s French American Brasserie. The rumor mill suggested that it was closing in order to open a new restaurant in Buckhead. And, indeed, owners Fabrice Vergez and Cindy Brown will open a new restaurant concept called F&B at the Ritz-Carlton Residences.
At the time of the F&B announcement, however, F.A.B. representatives insisted that it would remain open and that the new restaurant would not be a replacement. However, as What Now Atlanta reported, yesterday F.A.B. posted a notice of closure on its Facebook page and today the phones remain unanswered. The Facebook post reads:
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. Thank you to our incredible staff and all of those who have supported us over the years. With the current economic climate, we felt it best to focus all of our attention and efforts
