I love Fig & Olive in general, the one on the UES is totally a different dining experience than the one in Meatpacking. I could hear a pin drop at the UES location, yet at the Meatpacking restaurant I literally can’t even hear myself think straight.
I have had MANY dishes here — but the last time I went there were a few standout dishes. Julia ordered the special appetizer of the evening which was Fresh Burrata with Figs — out of this world. Literally. The Caesar Salad was forgetable, no doubt. My entree, which is one I order often, was so delicious. I get the Shrimp and Scallop Paella with Eggplant Tapenade and Red Bell Peppers. I lick the plate clean. Julia’s Branzino was also extremely solid.
