Fig & Olive - West Hollywood


It was back in October, 2011, I finally had a chance to come here. It was still Dine LA week so we ordered from Dine LA menu, and also from regular menu.

I really enjoyed the food. I also like that big open space.
Fig & Olive serves the food that I normally don't eat (which is great), and everything really tasted fresh.

Dine LA menu (Oct. 2011) $28
I chose soup, Tajin, and Crostini

Delicious bread. Brioche, croissant, raisin bread, baguette,,, this basket was filled with my favorite breads!

Really delicious jams. I bet they are homemade.

I can't remember, but I think it was Cote D'Azur fish soup

Northern Italian mushroom & truffle soup
Cremini mushroom soup, garlic, onion, thyme,white truffle olive oil

Mushroom Crostini, came with mushroom soup

Zucchini Carpaccio $12
Zucchini finished with olive oil, lemon, pine nuts, parmesan - Picholine olive

Couscous salad ( came with Tajine below)
couscous salad with cilantro and harissa

Fig & Olive Tajine
Free range chicken marinated with moroccan spices, served with fig, olive, apricot, carrot, zucchini, onion, toasted almond

Dessert crostini
Amarena cherry, Mascarpone, pistachio on shortbread with Micro-basil

One of the best dessert I've had. I was amazed how shortbread can be so tasty just adding some cherry and Mascarpone.
