Fig & Olive

I have been dying to go to Fig & Olive since it opened and finally went over the weekend. The space is beautiful, the concept for the menu is great and the food is delicious. All this would make Fig & Olive a standout in my book, but what makes it "hot" is a good celeb sighting and I did not leave disappointed!

The cocktail list is exactly what I'm into - innovative with an appropriate use of fresh herbs and ingredients.

Summer in Provence with gin, blackberries, rosemary thyme syrup, and lime juice
A trio of crostini: Fig and Prosciutto, Truffled Mushroom with artichoke, and copa with goat cheese and honey

Nightly selection of olive oils, three ceviches: branzino, shrimp, and tuna tartar
Chicken with seasonal vegetables

Branzino with figs and snow peas

Paella with shrimp and scallops

And the dish with the best presentation: Striped Bass Papillote

The reveal: sans papillote!
As I mentioned, we were very pleased with the food and ambiance, but for someone who loves celeb sightings, especially reality star sightings: the goods were delivered! Tyra Banks walked in with a group of about 5, soon followed by Nigel Lithgow and his party of 4.  Lastly, and the most exciting, some of Bravo's creme de la creme rolled in: Patti Stanger, Bobby and Jill Zarin, and a mystery man- let the speculation begin! This girl couldn't have been happier!
