A French, Lifestyle, Birthday Bash At Fig & Olive – We must always set aside time for ourselves to celebrate life. The month of October to millions is a very special season when many women such of as myself are grateful for our life, our good health and the abundance that surrounds us here in Los Angeles. This season, I celebrated my life at the upscale, Mediterranean, French restaurant known to many as Fig & Olive.
One can say, there are a plethora of places to share a fine dining birthday celebration in L.A. – yet; I selected this restaurant for the mere fact, they have excellent customer service and the ambiance is clean and modern.
The best news, my family and friends enjoyed each appetizer, entrée and wine selections that were served at our table. Should you be a fish lover, get the main course – Chilean Sea Bass, marinated with lemon thyme, carrots, asparagus, celery root purée and topped with a roasted potato. My birthday party all state – this entrée is indeed the best dish our table would share with you to order each time you drop into the world of Fig & Olive.
For all the Foodies, you must add the Crostini appetizers for you and your guest to enjoy in addition to adding the Fig & Olive salad. Picture a fig salad tossed with romaine lettuce, apples, dolce gorgonzola, tomatoes, olives, scallions and a eighteen year old fig balsamic olive oil that is fitting for a king or queen.
From my perspective – what is truly important when one is selecting a fine dining restaurant to celebrate your birthday or any special occasion in Los Angeles is to THINK and REFLECT on what’s most important to experience – impeccable customer service, cleanliness, taste and décor.
Oh, I must share for those of you who love simple elegant desserts – check out the CARAMELIZED APPLE TART Crisp puff pastry with caramelized apples topped with ice cream… “ A must have dessert to order ” for those who need a substitute to chocolate…..
