Like a pet cat, pizza typically mirrors its owner's personality and loves being tossed in the air and spun on one finger. Savor a tomato-sauced saucer or other Italian eats with today’s Groupon to Figaro’s Restaurant. Choose between two options:
- For $25, you get $50 worth of Italian cuisine and drinks.
- For $11, you get a carryout gourmet specialty pizza (up to a $19.50 value).
Figaro builds its menu of signature pizza, pasta, and paisan hospitality out of traditional recipes and gourmet ingredients. Put-upon parents and bank robbers in need of a mid-getaway snack can pop in to pick up a carryout pizza. Along with classics such as the overloaded Figaro's Deluxe and the vegetarian pizza's lush garden, Figaro's also crowns its edible circle with smoked salmon, capers, and cream cheese.
Figaro's dining room gives less time-crunched guests a chance to appraise its artwork and watch vacationing extraterrestrials meander the quaint tree-lined street outside its large windows. After slowly draining a bowl of sherry-infused turtle soup ($6.75) or polishing off a plate of mushroom caps stuffed with sun-dried tomatoes, cheese, and artichoke ($7.50), hunger-slayers can savor their way through signature dishes such as a creamy ocean of seafood risotto ($19.50) teeming with shrimp, mussels, scallops, and a cartoon octopus playing fish ribs like a xylophone. Figaro’s waitstaff materializes with the regularity of a well-trained genie to keep you informed of the ravioli of the day (market price) or recommend a tipple to pair with any dish.
Dim lights cast a warm glow across burnt-orange walls and white-linen covered tables inside Figaro's dining room, which serves as a welcoming environment for both families and romantic dinners. The room's large windows can be opened to the tree-lined street, sending in a light breeze, great views of uptown New Orleans, and premature feelings of nostalgia as guests dine on pasta and seafood dishes. Along with seafood risotto and pasta primavera, Figaro's chefs also concoct gourmet, Neapolitan-style pizzas such as the shrimp and cilantro pizza with roasted garlic cream sauce. An outdoor patio gives guests the option of dining under the open sky without painting the ceiling the color “solar eclipse.”
