Chef Lee Farrington is looking for a tenant for the 249 Congress St., the space that housed her popular restaurant, Figa. After two years in business and an on-again, off-again period this winter when she opened on weekends only, Farrington, who owns the East End building where Figa is located, is apparently not going to return.
The following is from her Facebook page: Want to open a restaurant in an AMAZING, intimate space??
Figa is just that space and all you need to do is sign a lease and unlock the door and OPEN........ email me at CHEFLEE@mac.com for info.
