|Paella Del Mar. Fig & Olive West Hollywood|
The return of Stuff She Likes food! It has definitely been a while since I’ve posted food.. And oh how I missed it. Restaurant tastings are
one of may favorite past times here on Stuff She Likes.. but lately fashion and beauty have been taking the reins and I could not think of a better entree back into food than Fig & Olive.
I first experienced fig & olive when they opened a little over a year ago and have been wanting to share the love with you guys ever since..And because the amazing folks over at Fig & Olive so generously shared their new summer menu with me and my girls Grasie and Amelia.. I in return share the love with you.
Lets chat food shall we!
Fig and Olive debuted their new summer menu last week and in true Fig & Olive fashion.. It was incredible from beginning to end.
Walking into the restaurant you’re instantly transported to another place. A serene, beautifully lit oasis of trees and comfort that few restaurant seem to get right.
Sky lights..windows..and the beauty of the food itself lend for a great experience.
We started with an Olive oil tasting.. and cucumber cocktails that paved the way for the amazingness that would soon join us at the table.
Course 1: The the Crostini.. Perfectly prepared and devoured in 2 minutes!
Course 2: Truffle Mushroom Croquette, Tuna Crudo and Fig & Gorgonzola tartlet. All delicious. If you love tuna crudo this is the place to go.. some of the best I have had.
Course 3: The pasta… Zucchini Blossom & Goat Cheese Ravioli. This a a perfect summer dish for anyone who wants pasta but wants to keep it light.
After indulging in Appetizers, pasta, crostini and another cucumber cocktail we moved on to entrees.
Course 4: Paella Del Mar ( also pictured above). A great mix of seafood and beautifully seasoned rice served in a hot pan. Salmon with Grilled Radicchio. Crisped to perfection and served on a bed of cauliflower mascarpone puree. YUM!
Course 5: Créme Brulee Cheese Cake and Warm Chocolate Soufflé.. A perfect end to a perfect meal!
Along with great food.. Fig & Olive sells 30 varieties of their signature house extra virgin Olive oil.
I have to say that Grasie, Amelia and I had a great time.. Thanks so much to Fig and Olive for a superb afternoon.
P.S. Fig & Olive also has a location in New Port Beach and several locations in New York.
