Fig & Olive, New York, NY

Fig & Olive Restaurant Review

: True to its name, this Mediterranean restaurant features appetizer tasting menus of olives, cheeses and charcuterie, as well as complimentary tastings of virgin olive oils. Standout starters include a delicate fig Gorgonzola tart with prosciutto, walnut, arugula and tomato on a fine puff pastry, and entrées feature grilled lamb skewers with couscous, rosemary, bell pepper, Greek yogurt, honey, fig, red onion and tomato. If you’re in the mood for something lighter, try one of the ceviches, tartares or carpaccios. And don’t forget to save room for dessert.
