Husband and wife team, Natasha and Carl Phillips, set out
to realize their dream in November of 2007, when they
opened a small juice and smoothie bar attached to a local
fitness facility. By 2014, they had outgrown their inaugural
space and moved FOJ, An Eatery to their current location
on Forsyth Road. Both Macon natives, the couple’s desire
to nurture and grow the business came naturally to them.
Carl, an artist with a flair for food, has populated the restaurant
with his work, while Natasha—the daughter of fine-dining matriarch,
Natalia del Basso-Orsini—has food running through her veins.
Their new space at The Prado allows them to display not only Carl’s art, but the food that has made them a popular local dining destination. FOJ, An Eatery uses only all-natural meats, including local ground beef from Rocking Chair Ranch, and all their food is fresh and made to order. Seasonal and signature items include Poppy Seed Chicken Casserole, Truffle Mac 'n Cheese, and their popular Pimiento Cheese and Chicken Salad. In addition to catering services, the venue also offers a private dining room for on-site events and parties.
