FIG & OLIVE
Meals at FIG & OLIVE often begin with tastings, but not the kind you might expect. Chefs pair each dish with extra-virgin olive oil, the ingredient common to all FIG & OLIVE dishes. A koroneiki olive oil augments balsamic vinegar drizzled across grilled branzino; rosemary-garlic olive oil brings forth hints of smoke in the lamb chops. Even the crème brûlée cheesecake features an olive oil crisp with caramelized peaches.
This South of France oasis, spurred by founder Laurent Halasz, who grew up eating cuisine made with olive oil from the Riviera and the Mediterranean costal line, partnered with Executive Chef Pascal Lorange, who uses the knowledge he learned from training with three Michelin stars Chef Georges Blank to prepare a majority of the dishes in this restaurant.
FIG & OLIVE also sells its own line of olive oils, more than 30 varieties of myriad origins and tastes. Like the cuisine or an ambiguous "European" accent, the oils evoke France, Italy, and Spain, as does the Mediterranean décor. To help the ambiance take deeper root, decorators have added terra-cotta accents, thriving rosemary bushes, and wrought-iron olive branches around the dining room's living centerpiece, an olive tree.
Guests dine at pillow-stuffed divans or at a 50-foot communal table—where they might well recognize some of the company. The Melrose Place location has attracted a host of high-profile events and celebrity sightings, including a fundraiser for President Obama, private dinners for Robert Downey Jr. and Amanda Seyfried, and appearances in The Hangover 3 and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. FIG & OLIVE staff even returned to the South of France to take part in Les Etoiles de Mougins, an annual gastronomical summit that attracts chefs from all over the world.
