FGO originated in Addison, but after an investor took improper liberties with the menu and atmosphere, the owner (who also owns Victory Park's Medina) demanded the name be removed, so that he could in turn slap it on an Uptown do-over: a pan-Mediterranean nook simply outfitted with a dark wood communal table, bench seating made comfy via cylindrical lumbar pillows, and huge iron lanterns hanging from a floating tin-tiled ceiling island, upholstered in the same woven Tuscan fabric as the pillows, and therefore truly back-lit.
