Food Porn Friday | Fig and Olive | West Hollywood

Friday, August 19, 2011


I've been DYING to try this trendy LA hotspot since it opened last spring on the corner of Melrose and La Cienega. This New York-based Mediterranean mecca debuted to a haute and hungry WeHo crowd in March and hasn't stopped burning the midnight olive oil since. 8,000-square-feet of pure yummy goodness...glowing walls, translucent greenhouse, hip and chic vibe, and of course major star power to boot. Expect to run into a few celebs on any given night (We sat next to Joe Hachem Poker Star, the boy was drooling...me, only over the food of course). Here's a sneak peek into what Fig and O's offering up these days...


(From top to bottom)

Front facade, main room dining/ adjacent indoor terrace, alfresco dining on the patio with house bread and olive oil sampler (friggin' BOMB.COM!!), white sangria (mine)/ hennessy and coke (his), working while eating (what's new??), my current fave bracelet on daily rotation (DIY'd thankyouverymuch, see how HERE), Ceviche sampler with Salmon ceviche prepared with orange, grapefruit, lemon, and cilantro, shrimp ceviche, sesame tuna tartar, and Branzino ceviche prepared with red onion, tomato, fennel, and dill, modern jambon platter with Spanish manchego/olives/ pan tomaquet, Seared sea scallops served with truffle artichoke, arugula, pine nuts with aged balsamic, and White Truffle olive oil (I DIEEEEEEEE!), and communal seating for walk-ins.


8490 Melrose Place
West Hollywood, CA 90069
(310) 360-9100

*Insider's tip: Order a side of their famous aged balsamic and drizzle that sucker over EVERYTHING! You won't be disappointed! I would've taken shots of it had the boy not overdosed on it to beat me! Next time, we're coming hungry 'cuz I literally wanted to eat the entire menu! Dipped in olive oil and balsalmic of course!*

Happy Weekend y'all!!!

  18. Great photos, love blouse you have on and the different bracelets. Totally obsessed with the color right now.
    Fig and Olive is amazing I frequent the one in meatpacking in nyc and I always return esp. for the olive oil and bread, I'm sure the one in LA is just as good.
