Fig & Olive Restaurant Review

: Somehow managing to serve food worthy of this über-hip must-be-seen-in Meatpacking District hotspot, Fig & Olive consistently dishes up delightful Mediterranean fare. The airy space, decked out with plenty of cool backlighting, attracts the hiperati while producing quality goods. There’s a lot on the long menu that tempts. Entrées include a not-so-memorable Mediterranean tasting plate (grilled chicken, lamb and shrimp) and a generous portion of lobster pasta de Venezia (that may be dry and bland). All the more reason to stick to the large selection of small plates and starters: the juicy seared sea scallops (topped with shaved artichoke) and the crispy-on-the-outside, gooey-on-the-inside crab croquettes a la plancha are standouts. And the Fig & Olive salad, loaded with fresh veggies, apple, manchego, Gorgonzola and walnuts, is a refreshing way to finish off the meal before vanishing into the Meatpacking night.
