Andrea got a preview of Fig & Honey on Monday night at their soft opening. Look for this new Chatham County eatery (located in the Harris Teeter shopping center, not far from Briar Chapel) to officially open its doors on Oct. 27. The grilled cheese with fig preserves and bacon was delicious, as was the creamy carrot soup with cilantro! The restaurant will also serve breakfast biscuits, grit bowls, falafel, kabobs and burgers. And they have a glass case full of hummus, pasta salad, fruit salad and roasted veggies.
