FIG Restaurant Review

: FIG, the California bistro in the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows, is named after the Moreton Bay fig tree that is the centerpiece of the beautiful courtyard at the hotel's entrance. The space encompasses several different areas, including a private room, pewter bar and a dining room with sliding doors that open up to the terrace (with a few desirable tables) and the pool and gardens just beyond. Chef Ray Garcia has handed over the reins of FIG at Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows to Yousef Ghalaini, most recently of The Bench at The Lodge at Pebble Beach. Sample artisanal cheeses and charcuterie before continuing with starters like scarlet quinoa and entrées of all-natural California Prime steaks or cauliflower risotto with Parmesan, brown butter and chives. Further demonstrating the focus on seasonality is a section at the bottom of the menu that keeps guests clued in to what ingredients have “just arrived,” are “in peak season” and are “coming soon.” Adventurous diners ought to consider the “Feed Me!” five-course menu. Beverage-wise, there's an interesting wine list, local beers on draft and classic and original cocktails.
