Fig & Olive - Is it still there
Never hear any chatter. Is it finally gone.
Ate there last night. Food was a bit hit or miss. One friend really enjoyed her striped bass en papillote; another liked her branzino quite a bit. My carrot and thyme soup was lovely. However, the zucchini carpacchio was terribly disappointing, especially considering the price (someone just sliced a raw squash thinly and tossed pine nuts atop the dish). The crostini, apparently the signature appetizer, were only so-so; I definitely could have put these together at home with a little canned fig jam, marcona almonds and boxed crackers. The pot de creme was smooth and tasty but nothing special.
However, I must say that the service was wonderful! I was concerned about this, given the reviews I have read on CH. Our greeter, server and bussers were all extremely friendly, helpful and attentive. No attitude whatsoever.
