Flying Fig Restaurant Review

: Cozy and hip, Flying Fig has a friendly vibe and an easygoing staff. This is urbanism at its best. The seasonal, inventive menu from chef-owner Karen Small marries regional flavors and personal panache. Start with the chicken chorizo empanada or the beef tartare topped with a 6-minute egg. Spring lamb bolognese, too, is not to be missed. Ditto for the pork shank, which is served in a spicy pozole broth, with radish, cabbage, cilantro and queso fresco. Desserts are equally tasty. The wine list is small but it features a solid selection of vintages from France, Spain, Italy, New Zealand and the U.S.
