So we all know about Fig & Olive having its simonella break maybe a month or two ago but that was handled. Everyone was like you know that’s the place that had the outbreak. I said yes, but now the food should be better than ever. Especially if that happens again, that’s it for them. Lol.
A friend of mine was back in town and I was trying to think of somewhere different to do lunch. I took a look at Fig and Olive’s prix fix lunch menu which is a steal at $25. And here we were.
We started out with bread along with three different olive oils to dip in. This was tasty, but I had to remember that it was a three course meal coming.
I started out with Salmon Crudo which reminds me of sashimi but without the rice. It’s served in oil with a little garnish. Very fresh. One of my favorite dishes of the three course meal.
The main course was Riviera salmon which I wasn’t a big fan of. The plating was beautiful though. I just think I’m not a huge fan of cooked salmon and more of a lover of raw salmon. My friend loved my dish and I ended up loving her Fall Vegetables Linguinie. Next time I’m getting her dish.
And last but not least I finished it up with dessert. The waiter accidentally thought I ordered the Amarena Cherry Crostini but he let me keep the original dish and corrected it with the Chocolate Pot de Creme. This came with a Creme top and underneath was the jello like chocolate. I will go back just for this. It tasted like….it had me speechless. Lol.
