Raleighites were rightfully upsetti to learn about Humble Pie’s closing, but we have your silver lining: Figulina. Headed by former Poole’s Diner Chef de Cuisine David Ellis and backed by Chef Ashley Christensen + Elm Partners, this pasta and provisions concept will open in the esteemed Harrington Street restaurant space.
Ellis, a Stoke-On-Trent, England native, wants to highlight NC’s vibrant harvest and farming community with pasta as his vessel by framing each menu with the season.
The restaurant plans to have a pasta production room where guests can watch the pasta making process and Ellis wants to eventually expand to offer take home pasta, group classes, and retail items like pottery.
“I am also beyond excited to see another independent restaurant set roots in downtown Raleigh,” Christensen said in a press release.
