EdIbLe LoS aNgElEs Part 12. Fig Restaurant

Posted Aug 29 2010 6:29pm

This restaurant is so lovely.  Not only is the staff friendly, the environment inviting and the menu tantalizing, they also use farmer’s market produce and organic meats. Ding ding ding, perfect combination! Oh, I forgot to mention that every evening Fig is open (Tues-Sat) the menu is 50% off between 5-6 pm. Could it get much better than that? Oh, yes it can! They have a Fig Martini. How restaurant appropriate!

As I looked around at what the patrons were eating, I just could not decide what to order.  Every dish looked better than the next.  I asked the waitress what she recommended, and after she listed half of the menu I decided to stop her and try two of her first suggestions; the market salad, and the fish tacos.  Both were a smash hit. The market salad was full of wonderful fresh farmer’s market produce, ranging from tiny bell pepper rings to fresh slices of nectarine.  If you are not an unconditional vegetable lover, you may not find this salad the most exciting menu choice. Do not fret, there are options for you too.  The fish tacos were perfect!  The sole perfectly spiced and accompanied by light coleslaw, mango salsa, topped by a delicate slice of avocado. The dish is served on top of two warm corn tortillas, three tacos in total.  There is cream in the tacos, but if you prefer your tacos creamless, the staff is happy to accommodate you.

The menu is updated seasonally and there is even a chart at the bottom of the menu listing what is in season, what is coming into season, and what is on its way out. 

Fig is definitely worth checking out. I would highly recommend trying their half off happy hour and enjoying a Fig Martini to accompany your delicious meal!
