This week, on Instagram Chez Fonfon announced they are reopening for indoor dining. We got so excited, we rushed over to Five Points South to get an update from Pardis Stitt, on the Stitt family of restaurants – Chez Fonfon, Bottega’s and of course the James Beard Award- winning Highlands Bar & Grill.
Here is what we discovered.
Chez Fonfon Indoor Dining is Back
First, the big news. Chez Fonfon is open for indoor dining, but customers need to make a reservation.
“We’ve just opened up inside with a few tables. We’re gonna go really, really slow. We are dipping our “big toe” into indoor dining,” Pardis said with a laugh. “We have eight bar stools and the tables are spread out, so we’re taking reservations now. For a lot of people who are used to no reservations for 20 years, thanks to COVID, we’re now taking reservations.”
Here are all the details.
Visit resy.com or call (205-939-3221) to make a reservation.
- Reservations are limited for up to 6 guests at a table or 2 for bar seats.
- Walk-ins are welcome, subject to availability.
- Masks are required upon entry and when not seated.
- Back patio remains open for dining, as well as the tent in front of the entrance
- Curbside service is still available
Bottega and Highlands Bar and Grill
Pardis captured how we all feel here in the Magic City when I asked her about what’s next for Bottega and Highlands.
“Many people say that they feel like life has resumed back to normalcy when Highlands opens up, so Bottega will be next. We’re hoping to open in the next couple of weeks and then Highlands will be after that. We are still staffing and rebuilding our teams.”
A Difficult Year
Like many in the restaurant business, the COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult.
Amen to that.
