A Better Fig Newton Plus More: FIG Restaurant at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica


Alli411 was really impressed with FIG Restaurant at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica. Sitting down I was greeted with my own mini-baguette in a bread bag, great branding and a wonderful touch. The name comes from the huge Fig tree at the entrance of the Fairmont Miramar Hotel. It's a beautiful tree; looked like it would be fun to climb.


FIG Restaurant's "Official Forager", travels the coast discovering primo fruits and vegetables for Chef Ray Garcia. The forager's finds are proudly listed on their menu under "Just Arrived", "In Peak Season", and "Coming Soon". There's a comprehensive cheese menu, sustainable meat, poultry, and fish, and plenty of dishes including their star fruit: the fig.



If you liked Fig Newtons as a kid, you are in for a treat with Fig Restaurant's Fig Bars served with Greek Yogurt Ice Cream and a smudge of Chocolate Sauce. In fact, the Fig Bars alone warrant a trip to Fig Restaurant in Santa Monica.
