Our Story

Pasta. Wine. Passion. Vibe.

The Menagerie Hospitality Group is excited to introduce Figo36 to Charlotte and the Noda neighborhood. 

We are as inspired by Italian food and drink as we are of the pleasure and enjoyment of the culture. 

We picked the name Figo, meaning "cool"in Italian slang, because we want our guests to know that our restaurant will be fun and casual though we'll serve excellent and carefully-crafted dishes.


We can't wait to open in NoDa and to meet you.
