Chef Lee Farrington, a veteran of New York and Portland ME restaurant kitchens has finally opened her doors at Figa. The menu has a lot of Northern Indian influences, a Brazilian touch ("Figa" is a good-luck charm in Brazil), a risotto ball here, a blini there, but it looks mostly at fresh local ingredients prepared with lots of attention - in other words, tasty little works of art on your plate. Hope to visit soon and try it.
