Figs Bistro held a grand opening event on June 12, inviting special guests to sample the food and beverages, and see the beautiful interior, but, as the owners said, the plan is to make everyone who visits feel like a guest of the family.
Angelo Lazaridis, who also owns Angelo's at 2705 Main St., co-owns Figs with his son, Alex, who is also the head chef. Lazaridis also brought in his other son, Dmitri, to be Figs' manager, after an earlier manager didn't work out.
Dmitri said the hard work in renovating the building, which took several years, has paid off. Great attention was paid to details to make the restaurant inviting and a part of the community.
