Longtime catering company opens first-ever restaurant space in Franklinton

Known for decadent brunches, caterer Bleu & Fig has been serving its own take on modern American fare to Columbus since 2010. But now, you don’t have to be hosting an event to try their food.

The popular caterer officially opened its very first brick and mortar restaurant, Bleu & Fig Cafe, on Nov. 15. The new space is located at 1160 W. Broad St. inside Jubilee Market, a 4,500 square foot non-profit grocery store serving the Franklinton community.

“We were always interested in being able to offer food in a way where people didn’t have to have a catered event,” said owner Brooke Kinsey. “People who hired us couldn’t easily eat our food again, and we would always get questions about it.”


According to Kinsey, though, had it not been for a chance opportunity to take on their new space, the cafe wouldn’t have opened at all.

Bleu & Fig’s catering services rent commercial kitchen space in Jubilee Market, and they were approached about taking over the former Jubilee Cafe, which they opted to do.“Everything was already in place for us, more or less. It’s the only reason I would have opened the cafe,” she said.

The new eatery is open Monday through Friday, from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.
