So I’ve wanted to go to Fig & Olive for some time now and finally I did! I went for an early lunch on a weekend. I must say the ambience was so cozy yet chic. There was lots of natural lighting and natural greenery accents throughout the restaurant. There is conveniently valet at the door which is always a plus in WeHo. But lets talk about the food…
So we started off with blood orange mimosas which were pretty impeccable. Can you really go wrong with a mimosa though?
Our waitress brought us out the complimentary bread and olive oils from Italy and Spain. The bread was very light and airy with lots of flavor when dipped into the oils. Overall, a very nice start to the meal.
Then we got the crostini appetizer, which was absolutely delicious. We got the following three:
•Prosciutto, Ricotta, Fig, Olive, Walnut
•Manchego, Fig, Marcona Almond
•Mushroom, Artichoke, Scallion, Parmesan
All were tasty but the prosciutto with ricotta was easily my favorite!
I also got the fig & olive salad. I’ll admit it was just a simple salad that lacked dressing but was nonetheless okay. Next time I will definitely try something other than a salad and indulge in their infamous apple tart.
So would I recommend it? Ofcourse! Fig and Olive is definitely worth a try.
