The Jewish Federation of Tulsa announces the opening of FIG, cafe and bakery named in homage to Theodor Herzl’s famous quote depicting the future Jewish homeland: “We are a commonwealth. In form it is new, but in purpose very ancient. Our aim is mentioned in the First book of Kings: “Judah and Israel shall dwell securely, each man under his own vine and fig tree, from Dan to Beersheba.”
The FIG: Cafe and Bakery features a fresh selection of soups, salads, sandwiches and desserts prepared daily by Le Cordon Bleu trained, Chef Dan Kachel. “We wanted to create a place that is a warm and welcoming community gathering spot offering, the lunch crowd, options that are innovative while still classic.” says Drew Diamond, Executive Director of the Jewish Federation. The neighborhood has been in need of lunch offerings beyond the fast food/fast casual options currently available.
